Inexpensive folding TEMPORARY workstand. Cheap, non-sturdy construction. Will require careful handling to last more than a year or two.

Wanted a new workmate because the one I've had for many years is fantastic, although all the pegs are long lost. I though, "Hey, cool!" when I found this one at the local "helpful" hardware store. When I got it home and out of the box, I was disappointed. Cheap and THIN stamped metal parts; Cheap plastic handles and bench dogs; difficult assembly; unclear instructions. Quality is far less than my old beat-up workmate. This won't last long, is not very sturdy, so will just be a TEMPORARY stand until I either build or find a better one. The only redeeming factor is that the wood work surface is actually wood (my old workmate is laminated particle board, although still in decent shape). What I may actually do is take the old particle board off and put the new, solid plywood on my old stand. Hopefully it will fit without having to do any serious adjustments. I WON'T buy another one if Black and Decker don't improve their build quality, instead I will repair my old one for as long as I can.

Pros: Inexpensive, "quick fix" replacement; actual hardwood plywood for the work surface, the screw handles operate smoothly. Unfortunately, that about covers it.

Cons: Cheaply constructed; will not last long; cheap plastic parts. Not at all sturdy. In other words, a throw-away shop item that I will have to "baby" to get any decent use out of. I am not asking for much, just tools that are built to last. My old workmate will LONG outlast this newer version. Black and Decker apparently has forgotten that each item they sell directly reflects upon each item that can potentially be sold by them. I am in the market to buy woodshop tools all the time. The terrible quality of this workbench makes me extrememly suspicious of their other products, and very unwilling to lay down hard-earned money in front of a company that skimps on quality. Quality shouldn't suffer from the least expensive product to the most expensive, period.

too much for the replacement vise panels (wood panels)!

I love my little workmate and I've had it for over ten years, but my wood panels are work out and replacements are $14/each. That's $28 in parts for an item that retails at $35. Too much B&D, too much!

Pros: parts too expensive

Cons: Trusty/handy little device

With wheels much better!

This workmate with wheels is not made anymore, but it was a wonderful product! I use it almost every day. a) folding is easy, b) I do not have to carry it around, it rolls, c) it has a litle opening foot for hauling and rolling heavy objects. I hated the classic workmate, and really am delighted with this one. Edouard

Pros: see above

Cons: see above

All about the Basics

After recieving this and assembling it, I went out to put my old one to rest and relized the construction differences. The old one was made with lots of metal, sturdy back then. But, for general clamping for cutting and sanding it works great and yes it can even be used a tool stand. Might have two around then for that.

Pros: Easy to move and store out of the way. Works great for around the home projects and Honey-do lists.

Cons: Plastic slides for the vice.

Over 15 years and still going strong.

I have owned this product for over 15 years and it has held up well with all the projects I have completed. It is my stand to do everything from holding my mitre saw or wet saw. This stand has helped me in refinishing two basements and numerous projects in the homes I have owned over the past 15 years.

Pros: The wood and metal has held up over all the abuse I have put this product through.

Cons: The feet keep falling off. I makes it tough to use it on a floor that will scratch. Finding new feet has been difficult.
