You can put the Boggs Tacklemaker together is a few simple steps. When you buy it, you receive a clear manual that shows you what to do. The Boggs Tacklemaker is meant to be mounted on a workingbench. If you have enough space you can mount it on a workingbench using to fitting screws that are sold seperately. But when you always need more space, like me, you can make your Boggs Tacklemaker removable.
Don't be afraid. It is not hard. Anybody can do this. You only need a wooden shelf and two glueclamps. Make sure that the shelf is thick and long enough. Between 2 and 2,5 cm is fine. And the length should be twice the length of the Boggs Tacklemaker. Mount the Boggs Tacklemaker on the the shelf as you would mount it on a workingbench. U use exactely the same screws. Make sure the screws are not to long. Otherwise they will come out of the shelf. Then you take the shelf with the Boggs Tacklemaker mounted on it and mount it with the two glue clamps on to the edge of your workingbench. And you are ready to go. And when you are finished with your Boggs Tacklemaker simply remove the two clamps and use the workingbench for something else.
