That is a fantastic bench. And this was a wonderful read. Your oops & ah's & oh well's & if I could do it again's made this instructable so helpful to an average putzer like me. I have had a new table top in mind for a long, long time and you just gave me the renewed ambition and tons of knowledge and confidence to get this thing up and running as we speak. These lessons we so well writ. I can't thank you enough. Job well done sir. Your craftsmanship is not too shabby either. 5 1/2 out of 5 stars to this instructable.

Welcome to Arduino
I am going to have to agree with the comments gm280 posted 4 day ago. The precision you were able to accomplish with the types of tools you tackled this project with is delightfully phenomenal. The patience & persistence you display shows the heart of a true craftsman. Another comment someone left was that he would hang up the craft if he had to do it your way. But with your determination, you created mastery. I am respectfully impressed with your talents. Thank you so very much for sharing this.And by the way I am probably going to make this very one following your design. I beat things up in a vise too. Been doing that for too long now. Thanks again.
My best advice has always been to heat the joint to the point that you see alot (ALOT) Let me put that another way ( A whole lot of smoke). That temperature is right that that flux will suck that solder in any which direction in needs to go (in, out, backwards, upside down). It has always been foolproof for me. It is like they figured it out to a science. A whole lot of smoke from the flux equals the right temperature. I do not claim to be an expert but that has never failed me. (ever) (a lot)
it is also not a bad idea to put a heat shield between any studs and your flame. I'm just saying.
