BenchMate™ is a powerful holding system that stabilizes stone setting, speeds up soldering and simplifies jewelry repair. BenchMate™ reduces the hand force needed to set stones.
You can set more stones per day and do a nicer job with less strain and greater confidence.
Special attachments turn BenchMate™ into an advanced soldering aid. You’ll finish jobs like prong retipping, shank repair and ring sizing, faster.
BenchMate™ simplifies complex jewelry fabrication and torch work, making you a better jeweler. Using BenchMate™ requires no major change to your work methods. Just fasten the tapered Fixed Mounting Plate on the front of your bench.
This plate mates with every BenchMate™ attachment including: Basic BenchMate™ Holder, Bench Pin, Engraving Vise Shelf, Sawing Plate, BenchMate™ Vise, Double Soldering Station. To change attachments, you lift them up and off the tapered Fixed Mounting Plate.
It takes three seconds and requires no tools. This patented system keeps your work centered in front of your bench at the right height. You’ll maintain good body posture for greater comfort throughout the day.
The Basic BenchMate™ Holder tilts and rotates to any position while you work on rings, pendants, earrings, and other jewelry. Its jaws hold both jewelry and other attachments including: Narrow Solder Fingers, Wide Solder Fingers, Shellac Pads, Pitch Cup, and 4" (100mm) Solder Station.
The holder moves freely in all directions, or you can add selective resistance by tightening the pivot knobs.
You can also lock it solidly in any position. The BenchMate™ Holder moves only when and where you want. This eliminates accidental slips that can ruin your work or injure you.
