To build a stable work station, you'll need plenty of fasteners available at competitive prices through WDS Components. This includes nuts, washers and screws. You can find a wide choice of materials and types on our product pages to help you create a strong surface to hold vices, clamps and your work piece.

Whether you're looking for craftsman tools to create pieces of jewellery or the parts to make a work station, we've got it covered. For a work bench we typically suggest using levelling castors as it's easier to move your pieces into different light settings (important if you're working with crystals and gemstones or welding rings). These wheels can be easily adjusted and then fixed into place- they're also perfect for floors which may be uneven creating levelled surfaces, the best stability for you to carry out your work. If you're looking for something more permanent then check out our adjustable levelling feet.
