Folding Workbench and Toolbox Combo-Coolest thing ever.

I spent Easter out at my Aunts house today and all us guys retreated to my Uncles Garage to get away from the kids. r him

While we were out there he showed my this pretty neat work bench/toolbox that he picked up from a yard sale for 10$.

Long story short he ended up givin it to me just to get it out of his way and for me to bring him out a couple totes for him to store car parts in.

I've never seen anything like it before and I'm not really sure how to describe it so I took pics.(Carpy Cell Pics I'l get better ones tomorrow)

Here's the whole thing folded up for transportation.


The only identification thing I could find on it. A sticker that says cobra.


The top portion pulled up.


The bench folled out. The legs for the front part are stored in 2 holes in the top part.


Here's the shelves under the table part.


And here's the top portion. It has some brackets with holes for screwdrivers to go through and some other things I'm not sure what they are used for.


Anyone ever seen something like this before or have any info on it?

In the pics it's pretty dirty. I scrubbed it down after I took them with some purple power and it already looks a lot better. I'm thinking tomorrow I'm gong to pull all the red pieces off and repaint them as they are all chipped up.

Alright since no one has said anything I figured I'd bump this with some better pics.







I've got it all apart at home right now and all the red pieces are in different stages of being painted. I'm hoping to get it all put back together over the weekend.

I'm needing some suggestions on what to do with the wood table part. It needs to be sealed as it'll be outside most of the time. I"m just not sure how to go about it.

I'm also not sure what the green/Yellow part is. Anyone know?
I'm thinkin it's to hold screwdrivers just haven't tried it.

Also still wondering if anyone has seen something like this before or have any info on it

Is the green/yellow part magnetic? It looks like a heavy piece of equipment. I wonder if this company is the same as Cobra which makes drain cleaning equipment.

No it's not magnetic that was my first thought also.

Idk I've tried googling it but I don't come up with anything helpful.

Here's the finished product.

All the red was sanded and painted with 2 coats of orange and then 3 coats of clear, and the wooden table part was coated with about 4 coats of polyurethane.
It's a bit dusty from just sittin there for a couple months.




I need to get a set of screwdrivers to fill the top portion with.

That's a nice old unit. If you want to find more about it, sign up for the forums at GarageJournal.com

There are a bunch of vintage tool experts there that could probably identify it for you. Be warned - that website is terrible for your wallet!

It Might be but I kinda doubt it. I'll investigate it a little more this weekend.

I'm already signed up over there. Never thought to post this up over there though.

And your right I've already got a ton of ideas from that site I want to do.

That is a nice thing to have. I'd love to be able to wheel out a work station into my driveway to set parts, tools and such while working out there...
