After 33 years in the trade, I finaly built myself a drawing bench. I always used the pole method to draw wire or tubing if it was very thick.This thing cost me a grand total of $40 for the winch, $10 for the steel and $10 or so for the tongs. And a afternoon of welding and grinding. Works like a charm and I will be putting a pictorial on my tutorial section of my website. Tomorrow or so.I put it on the floor to photo it.It is about 1200mm (4 feet) long.
