Alemite gets into the Work Bench business

This is the earliest ad we have found for an Alemite Work Station. February 1940

The Drawing includes a small drawer on the front of the bench and the ad refers to two large drawers, but the closest we have seen to a drawer on these is this configuration below from 1942.

Most of the units came with a cabinet door on both sides of the center bench.

It is especially interesting how similar Alemite’s first bench is to the earliest Lincoln and Kent Moore units. They all debuted within months of each other.
