The Noden Adjust-A-Bench uses a pair of 26.25″ tall nesting frames that can ratchet up, using foot pedals, another 16.5″ via 12 locking stops (1.5″ increments) to provide the legs for a bench that can easily change height.

A basic kit (17″ W leg sets, 2 foot pedals, hardware package, and assembly instructions) costs $430 plus $60 shipping and handling. You provide the bench top (18″ min. recommended width) and the rails. Available accessories include different width castor packages (17″, 22″, 28″, and 40″; $160 plus $30 S & H), rail brackets, standard rails, and threaded rod. Complete benches (leg sets, bench rails, threaded rod, and solid hard maple butcher block top) are also available starting at $800 (60″ × 30″ × 1 3/4″ top, or 72″ × 24″ × 1 3/4″ top). The kit is designed and manufactured in the US.

I like the idea of an adjustable-height bench for many reasons, including that I would be less likely to tweak my back when the work surface is at a reasonable level. Have any Toolmongers used this bench? What’s your opinion?

    Works great in my small shop. Gives me a lot more flexibility than I would otherwise have.

    yeah i am not shelling out that sort of cash, might make something similar though. it’s a good idea but would i ever really use it to it’s potential?

    good idea, but in my shop i’d end up adjust it to one height and there it would stay.

    For about the same price you could get the workbench lift http://toolmonger.com/2009/08/18/workbench-lift/ showcased a couple of months ago and keep your existing bench.

    I built the adjustable ends into my 3′ x 8′ bench. Love the ability to lower for hand planing, raise/lower for assembly, raise for detail work, etc. Very solid at all heights. I like em.

    Price is now $475 and worth every penny

    Duh!…Of course I should add we now offer the Craftsman’s Hardware Package which allows the same function as the original AAB but at a $176 savings. Check it out at Adjustabench.com. Geoffrey
