    Just when I think you are done with innovations, you pull me back in! This was totally awesome in its engineering functionality and downright simplicity. We’re not worthy.

  2. Karl Caillouet on February 21, 2022 at 10:40 pm

    Great, Thank you!!

  3. Gregory Hines on February 21, 2022 at 10:40 pm

    That’s a great idea. i would think that having one locking point in the front and one in the back would be a good way to make it stable.

  4. Chris Lewis on February 21, 2022 at 10:41 pm

    I love how you continue to evolve your design. So inspirational.

  5. Drew Witt on February 21, 2022 at 10:43 pm

    I’ve wondered about how to do this

  6. Roy at Avalon Farms on February 21, 2022 at 10:43 pm

    Great idea Ron. Got me thinking about making other attachments using this concept.

  7. John Lowry on February 21, 2022 at 10:46 pm

    Great idea. Are the holes on the top of the vise 20mm. Also does the spacing of the holes on the vise match the holes on the bench

  8. הראל חיים on February 21, 2022 at 10:49 pm

    Smart and easy to work!! Love the fluently

  9. Mark Aramaki on February 21, 2022 at 10:50 pm

    Nice addition to your bench! Thanks!

  10. Chris Mason on February 21, 2022 at 10:50 pm

    That is so cool!

  11. Craig's Cabinets on February 21, 2022 at 10:53 pm

    That’s what I’m talkin about right there. The evolution of this SMART system is going to greatly improve the ability to transition from one task to another with a minimal footprint WHEREVER YOU ARE.
    Absolutely beautiful.

  12. Adam Weil on February 21, 2022 at 10:54 pm

    I really like how this is under mounted to the bench. It would be really sweet to have the table saw/router table/door hangers mount under also! I’m gonna have to think about that one for a bit

    This is a great idea!
    Thank you!

  14. tladoux on February 21, 2022 at 10:57 pm

    This is awesome!

  15. Arthur West on February 21, 2022 at 11:00 pm

    Brilliant, Ron!
    What version of your bench is the one in the video?

  16. Dustin McBride on February 21, 2022 at 11:01 pm

    Tip- To help the handle of the vise last longer get two thick O-rings from the hardware store. Place one on each each end of the vise handle. They will act as buffers keeping the ends from cracking and breaking over time from the ends striking the vise as the handle drops.

    Your ideas of Paulk Smart Benches’ accessories are causing me to think of ways to add them to my Festool MFT 3 table. With just a little modification your accessories work on my MFT 3. Paulk Smart Benches has a bottom and that’s a big plus, I can’t tell you how many times a screw, domino, etc falls through one of the holes on to the floor, and I need a place to store my tools too. I’m going to put a shelf under the MFT 3, just like you mounted your vice, I will mount my shelf.

  18. Eric Itsweire on February 21, 2022 at 11:04 pm

    Great design. However, it looks to me that you inner row of 20 mm holes should 96 mm from the back row rather than 96 mm from the row close to the vise to match the holes on your PSB

  19. Dan Czernicki on February 21, 2022 at 11:11 pm

    Great idea! Another accessory I need to build. Thanks.

  20. Mark Hedquist on February 21, 2022 at 11:13 pm

    That’s excellent! I really like this design. The mobility of the vice, and ease of attachment…superb! I believe I am about to do a search for the Premcore plywood and see if I can acquire a few sheets before I build me own smart bench. Wish me luck! I live in Kansas… Oh, which do you use? The birch, or the maple veneer?
    Edit: I went back and re-watched your old video in this subject. Thanks!

  21. SdS Construction on February 21, 2022 at 11:13 pm

    Great addition to the SMART accessory line! Seems it will be quicker than multiple clamps to do the same job. Thanks Ron.

  22. Patrick Anderson on February 21, 2022 at 11:16 pm

    Cool Idea. As a side note, I was looking on HD for those storage totes and they were out of stock. Looking at the back of your garage, I guess that’s why 😉

  23. Brian Levy on February 21, 2022 at 11:17 pm

    This is great. How do you account for the difference between the 18mm thickness of the mounting plate and the 32mm distance to the bench side opening?

  24. Stuart Tetley on February 21, 2022 at 11:20 pm

    Wow great idea 💡👍

  25. Andy St John on February 21, 2022 at 11:21 pm

    definitely adding this.

  26. Sol on February 21, 2022 at 11:26 pm

    Good idea and Great flexibility!

  27. Will Watlington on February 21, 2022 at 11:26 pm

    Great idea. I am interested in that Tye-Dye too!! Hook a brother up!!

  28. Anthony Fetter on February 21, 2022 at 11:27 pm

    Nice job Ron. I like it. I have also been meaning to ask if you’ve thought about building a cradle type attachment for a bench top planer? I’m sure I could figure it out, but I bet other people would also be interested in a design from you.

  29. wingsley on February 21, 2022 at 11:28 pm

    Nice video. Thanks for the visual demonstration and offering the plans for download.

    One task I’ve worked on has me baffled. Maybe the Paulk Smart Benches might provide an answer, but I don’t know. It’s a once-in-a-blue-moon thing, but it is frustrating when it happens. I’m talking about ripping lumber: 2x4s, 2x6s, 2x10s, 1x12s, 6x4s. Sometimes we need to trim off and inch or less, but sometimes we need to take 2 inches or more. It’s always a miserable task that requires two men, and there’s never a table saw available. (My father’s just burned up recently) You need one fool to run the skilsaw (circular saw) and another fool to hold the board on the sawhorse(s). Another feature of this method: at least one fool gets to bathe in sawdust, maybe both.

    I’d like us to either get a Paulk Smart Bench or make one from plans. But even if we had one right now, and the need to rip were to rear its ugly head again today, I don’t see how you can use clamps or a wood vise to hold the board and make it less labor intensive. I know the answer is easy: "make sure you bring a table saw with you", but that isn’t always practical. I talked with Dino Kouros of Korous Carpentry on Instagram about finding a way to use his vacuum-based Vac Pad devices as a kind of reverse-engineered vise, and maybe that would be better. Not sure how it would work. There’s got to be a way to do this and not rely strictly on table saws. (They aren’t always available.)

  30. EZRA 13 on February 21, 2022 at 11:28 pm

    Ron, again another great idea! for a vise! 👍🏻 (yes you don’t like vise)! but now… its oke! take care! 😅

  31. Joseph Cangemi on February 21, 2022 at 11:29 pm

    Awesome Ron! Thanks😎

  32. John Frazier on February 21, 2022 at 11:30 pm

    I freaking love this Ron. Got my mind going on how to adapt for 12mm since I made the compact bench. How well do you think the dogs will grab on a 12mm top with 18mm mounting plate?

    One thing you forgot to link in description was those smart dogs. I think they are a FastCap jam but my memory eludes me.

  33. Jason Topnik on February 21, 2022 at 11:32 pm

    this is exactly what i was looking for! perfect. i have the smart connects, now i need these new ones. So smart!

  34. Steven Hulsey on February 21, 2022 at 11:32 pm

    Great video Ron but I think you are effecting the market. Since posting your video the price of the clamp has gone over $160. Keep up the good work, you have tons of great ideas; I seem to learn something from every video.

  35. Dave Young on February 21, 2022 at 11:34 pm

    What is the hardware to mount the vice to the bench?

  36. David Stanton on February 21, 2022 at 11:36 pm

    Great idea and use of the power loc dogs Ron!
