    Excellent kit. Sturdy and well engineered. Also generous with left over screws and parts, great for when you lose one down the back of the bench. Doesn't come with any small wrenches for assembly. You will need a 5.5mm spanner as Nyloc nuts are used and can be fiddly to tighten. (Posted on 27/10/2016)
