Did you ever get a solution for this? I have the same problem. The squat lock will not unlock the bench.

    Ensure the metal cable is connected properly to the small metal piece on the squat attachment. If it is you can adjust the tension of the wire. It is tricky but I got it.

How much do I have to bench press to grow muscles fast?

Here's How to Build a Bigger Chest. The key to increasing the size of your chest muscles is to eat more and get stronger. Build a foundation before you even think of adding isolation exercises.
Eat More. Your chest will never be big if you're underweight. Check the minimum weights for your height. To gain weight: eat every 3 hours and focus on calorie dense foods. Read the weight gain & GOMAD guides.
Do Heavy Compounds. Free weight compound exercises like the Squat, Deadlift, Bench Press and Overhead Press are the fastest way to build overall strength & bulk. Do them often & heavy.
Train Your Legs. Squats & Deadlifts help chest growth by increasing the release of muscle building hormones like Testosterone and Growth Hormone. Get stronger at them. Read 5 reasons to train your legs.
Rest. Your muscles grow when they rest, not when you train them. Train your chest maximum 2x/week. Eat your calories so your chest gets the nutrients it needs to recover and grow bigger.
Lift Fast. Lifting fast recruits more muscle fibers and lets you use more weight, which stimulates chest growth. Lift as fast as you can on the way up with good technique. Way down under control but not slow.
Use Proper Technique. A partial bench press doesn't work your chest through a full range of motion. Touch your shirt on the way down, lock your elbows at the top. Lower the weight if you have to.
Set Realistic Goals. Even if you train and eat exactly like your idol, you'll never get the same muscle shape. Developing your muscles is training and diet. But the shape of your muscles is genetics.
Be Patient. Especially if you're still a teen. Your body is still developing. You won't get the chest development of a 30y old if you're only 15. Build the foundation and be patient. Your chest will change as you get older.

I have the Panasonic sd-254, I don't know why, but after the rest period, it makes a horrid clicking noise. It's all in properly, do you know why this is?

. Then this needs to be changed. Meaning that focusing on compound lifts only. Comprises weight lifting exercises like squats, bench press, deadlifts, rows, and military newspapers.

Below I included a link to the manual for your grinder.
However it will tell you the same thing I'm going to tell you.
Most bench top grinders do not come with a shaft lock. In order to loosen or tighten the retaining nut you need to place a small wooden wedge between the wheel and the metal wheel shroud. This will prevent the shaft from turning. This may seem archaic but it serves a good purpose by preventing the over-tightening of the retaining nut.
Hope this helps.

Any installation specs on the best way to install the vise on a wood bench?

This is just generic instructions just to give you an idea of placement and mounting. I am not sure if your vise turns or not and that would be a big factor also. It depends on where you want it, if anything is close that will interfere with the vise or whatever you have in the vise. Depends how thick the spot is where you want to mount it. If the place is not very thick, use bolt and heavy washer on top of the vise and a heavy washer, a lock washer and nut on bottom. In place of the lock washer and nut, you could use locknut. If the bench where you want to mount is too thick for bolts, use at least 2" lag bolts with heavy washers with the lag bolts as big as the vise holes will accept. You will need the vise as close to the edge without it hanging over the edge of the bench. This is so you will be able to open and close the vise without obstruction. If placement of the vise isn't a big deal, the center edge of the bench would be great although I always mount mine on one end of the bench because of better movement of the part in the vise. Goodluck.
