What else do I need to use SmartBench?


You will need an MDF or plywood spoilboard. It needs to be rigid and flat so that SmartBench can clamp it, and run across it easily. 

We recommend using a 6mm - 9mm melamine-faced MDF board. 


You will need an extraction system, which you should choose with your specific application in mind.
