Fabrication - Patch panels: Part IV

As I promised last time, this weekend I have done sheet metal work!

But first, lets do some background work for the garage.

I had noticed that the vise stand I made was not so sturdy as I had hoped.
Some rummaging later in the metal bin and I found profiles that slid inside each other and therefore I could make the system pictured here.

Supporting tasks for the project - Garage V

I'm continuing still with garage related tasks. Next update will deal with patch panels I swear!

It seemed to me that the new work table area along with the drill press station was a little dim and this needed fixing.

Cue "China special" eBay LED-lights rated at 100w.
These units seemed rather nicely made and overall impression was nice. There has been some reviews in Youtube (link) where the ground wire has not been connected and therefore the light has been somewhat dangerous straight out of the box. This I checked first thing when I received the lights.
Fortunately this was not the case with mine as the ground wire was nicely connected to the chassis.
