The only problem is that one of the vise dowel rods was missing from bench. Would like one sent to me. Let me know what will be done, I paid enough for this so it should be replaced.
Thanks

Works exactly as advertised
The workbench arrives exactly as specified.
It will serve steadily as a hobby workbench (if you require an allaround heavier work bench, buy a stouter model). If you intend to use energetic force in a horizontal direction, e.g. hand planing or pounding on a chisel on work in one of the vices, you will want to anchor it to the floor (also, no surprise). It arrives unfinished, as advertised, which gives the user some freedom as to whether/how it should be finished. Mine accepted Daly's Seafin Teak Oil beautifully. It has served me very well for my purposes.
Cautionary note: I am 5'-7" tall in shoes. The workbench works for my needs, but someone taller than I am should decide if the 860mm height will be comfortable for them.

Overall very satisfied
This is a very nice workbench. Mine also has the cabinet. It does take a while to put it together... About 3 hours & I'm very handy. You will need large clamp since it needs perfect alinement to put it together. Sjoberg needs to make better & more detailed instructions... These instructions are just some pictures. Finally, one of the vices did not have the support piece, for the vice, without the 3 necessary holes for the vice to go in. ...... I really like the bench. It's just the right size & very well put together

I wanted a workbench that would hold my lathe tools and accessories and my bench grinder. I wanted the vises just in case I need to hold wood blanks so that I could saw them to length. Basically light duty. I am very pleased with it.

It looks like a nice little workbench for me. I have just started woodworking and making miniatures and wanted something really sturdy, but not too big.

I am just staring to wood work and have the following questions How did Rockler Sjoberg handle some of the missing pieces? is the 860mm tall enough bench or is there a taller one?
bob b on Jul 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Regarding missing pieces: I did not have to follow up on that issue - my workbench arrived complete with no missing parts - or with any other issues. The shipping bill that came with the bench showed that it came from Affinity Tool Works in Troy, MI. That sheet lists one note that concerns that issue: "All claims or shortages must be made within five working days after receipt of goods"
Rockler's catalog says "Please call customer service before returning this product." I add this note because Rockler's customer service has been helpful to me on technical questions (happily, I have never wanted to return anything), so they might assist you on a missing piece problem. (Verify that with Rockler).
Tall enough? I stand 5'-7" (1702mm) tall in shoes. The workbench is just at a comfortable height for me to work on. I would not want it to be any shorter. I have a product list that is two years old (but maybe still accurate) which shows two series of Sjobergs bench models, the Elite and Scandi series, all of which are listed to be 35 1/2" (902mm) high.
Is it possible to put the vise on the other side of the bench?
Steven S on Feb 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, vices are fixed in place.
