3 bench upgrades

 

Electrical outlet under top of workbench
Plug into convenience

When you add a heavy-duty power center to your workbench, you eliminate the inconvenience and danger of tripping over multiple extension cords.

Select a power strip with a cord long enough to reach a wall outlet in the least-traveled area near the bench and with surge-blocking ability to protect the electronics in battery chargers. Numerous outlets accommodate multiple tools and a charger or two.

Most power strips have mounting holes in the back panel. Carefully route the cord under the bench to avoid any drawers or possible damage caused while you work at the bench.
