its nothing special but it its good quality plastic the holes for tools are kinda big so you gotta have hex drivers with thick handle other wise they fall threw....

keep in mind this guy only makes the swivel part he buys the tri-pod and work table..my work table was in a printed box that looks like was bought at a hardware store and just puts it all together as a package.....

I love mine and it works well with a Trex 700, no tipping issues. It's one of the best tools for an initial build that I own.

That does look handy. I also noticed they had a decent set of calipers at a good price. $25.00, not bad.

http://www.prontow.com/DigitalCaliper.htm I've seen some folks asking about those lately.

Nice digital calipers all polished. I would say your choice black or polished.

I got the same one from my local TSC (tractor supply co.) for $15.95. Not sure if they have mail order or not. Came with carry case and extra battery too.
