The weirdest workbench you'll ever see.

I have had my engineering vise mounted to a three leg trestle for a while now and find it quite useful.  In my workshop the name of the game is to be able to move things around to suit the job.  The original trestle was welded from 50mm RHS and whilst functional I did notice some flex whilst using the hacksaw.  Having recently been given some heavy 75 x 100mm RHS I decided to make a new matching pair to suit my tinkerers work holding beams.  I haven't decided what to do with the spare post but I might mount my bench grinder on it or fabricate a post vise.
