A common material for pre-manufactured workbench legs and supports is steel sheet. As we discussed in our previous article "A Handy Guide on Shelving Systems for the Home Garage and Workplace", the thickness of sheet metal is called its gauge and the lower its gauge number is, the thicker the steel is. Steel sheet ranges from about 30 gauge to 8 gauge, with thinner 30+ gauge material called foil and thicker 8 gauge or less material called plate. Typical workbench supports range from around 12 to 16 gauge. Stringers and lower shelves add stability and strength to the legs and allow for heavier loads to be applied. They do this by connecting the legs together below the worktop and forming a rigid structure that helps support itself. Without additional support the workbench legs would easily fold under and collapse when weight is applied. The design may favor stringers alone if the workbench is intended to be used while sitting, allowing for the person’s legs to extend under the worktop. Lower shelves may also be incorporated into the design for storage below the worktop surface, and may be partial or full sized shelves depending on its use. Though load carrying capacities are frequently not listed on workbenches, a general rule of thumb is to use a thicker gauge steel support structure for heavier duty workbench applications.
Ramps for Lifting The first type we’ll speak of are ramps. Car ramps can be used to elevate the front end or back end of a vehicle. One ramp goes to each tire and they lift the car about 6" to 18" off the ground. They are reliable supports because the tires rest on them, making a slip or accident almost impossible.
If actual floor space is not a critical issue there are floor mounted heavy duty shelves for home garages available. These shelves come in three to five tiers high and can hold up to 1200 pounds shelf on the three tier models or 700 pounds per shelf on the five tier models. Do not fill all your available wall space with shelves. A garden tool organizer can be a wise use of floor space and remember to keep a place for your lawn mower. Planning is the first step but it must be followed by putting your equipment back in the planned spaces when not in use.
