    hey brewers

    I’m looking for a bench for my system but most benches are around 900mm high. Is there one out there which is around 600mm high as the extra height isn’t needed.

    Thanks
    Daisy

    I have one from Bunnings, you could cut down the legs. They are notched every 40ish mm so making them even wouldn't be hard. They were on special for 150ish recently.

    I can't remember the brand it was a while ago. I don't have a pic on my phone but if you look on eBay for stainless work bench it's similar to one of those. I have a wire rack on the lower shelf which works well as a drying rack for the brew equipment.

    Keep an eye on Greys Online they have a lot of catering gear, including the S/steel tables

    I got one from Handy Imports and cut down the top of the legs before attaching them.

    I’ve seen this mob on eBay. I’ll have a look again. Cheers for that.

    Oh these were the ones I was looking at. So the castors fit these tables? Also how easy was it to cut down the poles and with what tools you use? These would be my preferred tables just the height turned me off.

    Castors fit no problems. I just used a hacksaw. A little bit of effort, but not too bad. If I had to do any more I'd make up a jig to hold the legs in place while cutting. The rough end fits inside a sleeve under the bench, so my dodgy workmanship was concealed ;)
