I ordered a workbench today. It should come next week. It's the same design as the bench I have been using in the US since 2000. Cost was $227 USD, including shipping, which is much less than a similar bench in the US.
A workbench is the most important thing for me to be able to make things here since I do everything at the bench: jewelry fabrication, wax carving, lock picks, carving, etc.
I have a lot of tools here, but not everything. I will go through my tools this weekend and see what exactly I have. I should have tools here to do some fabrication and carving. I will go to a tool store in Taipei and buy some more stuff after I get the bench and figure out what else I need.
