The Proper Shop Stool Makes Work Easier

Wednesday, September 29th, 2010

Interthor Shop Stools / Work Stools with CastersIf you have ever worked on a car, you know how much strain can be put on your back and knees. This is especially the case when working on the wheel of your car, whether it is changing brakes, calipers, struts, ball joints or tie rods. When kneeling is involved, you should really use some sort of a shop stool, preferably one with casters. These wonderful devices have been a lifesaver for me.

Another thing that shop stools are great for is keeping tools organized and close. I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I have worked on a car, only to find the tools are on the other side of the car, under the car or I’m sitting on them. It’s almost as if they are able to get up and walk away. Shop stools usually have convenient shelves where you can place tools.

Just yesterday I was changing out a leaky rear brake caliper on my ’87 VW GTI mk2 (great car by the way). Having a stool to sit on kept me cleaner, kept my box wrenches in reach and made the entire process simple. Shop stools are a great time saver.

At ABC Office we currently offer two great shop stools, known as People Positioners, which are made by Interthor. One of these stools is the People Positioner 02, which is compact, basic and simple (perfect for me). It features an adjustable seat and has a nice tray underneath for tools. It can be adjusted in height from 13 1/2″ to 18 1/2″.

The second work stool we offer is the People Positioner 05. This work stool is designed for working on taller machinery and has an adjustable height of 20″ to 30″. This work stool has two shelves for tools.

Both of these shop stools are great for what they do and feature a premium build quality, far higher than what you normally find in a shop stool. Both of these work stools feature casters that can be locked in place. This makes moving around a garage, shop or warehouse easy.
