Work benches in Poland


#1

Hi again

can anyone recomend a company who can supply me with a bench. All of
the jewelry benches i have see have been in The U.S and i am now
living in poland and the couple of places that do jewelry supplies
here only have realy cheap and nasty benches or i should say more
like tables here. I want a good quality one and i am willing to pay
for a good quality one too, If order from the U.S and spend like
$600+ then there is the shipping and then i get taxed big time here
to so realy i need somewhere in europe (less tax if any at all). Some
of the ones i found back in the good ole U.K have not been worth the
price they wanted for them in my opinion. As a last resort i will try
and find a carpentry place that could make me one but it would make
my life easy if i could just order one from a supplier

many thanks
jason

Germany. Good carpenters are in Kalwaria Zebrzydowska near Krakow. If

Jason,

Can you telephone local jewelry shops or local watch maker shops and
ask where where they buy a jewelers bench?

Good luck.

Hi Jason,

Some of the ones i found back in the good ole U.K have not been
worth the price they wanted for them in my opinion. 

The UK benches are a bit pricey - you’re right. I bought one from HS
Walsh (see link)

http://www.hswalsh.com/8_Drawer_Bench_.aspx?i=TB210&t=118

It’s 770 UKP inc VAT!!! Mine is exactly the same but has a solid
butcher’s block style wooden top rather than the green top in the
picture. You can get benches of the same (and maybe even higher
quality) in the US for possibly half the price.

Would the shipping and tax take the price of such a US bench over
and above the price of a similar one in the UK?

Another place to try maybe Germany? From what others say, they have
a good jewellery tradition so may have great benches at the right
price.
