- This is a handy workbench, especially for outdoor projects. Very happy with this Black & Decker workbench.
- I ordered this because I needed an extra hand when wood working and tinkering on projects in the garage. My Dad use to have one that we’d use all the time, and it was built solid! This product is great, but definitely not built like they use to be. It’s sad how manufacturers have a great product in the past, and short change the materials to save on costs. Other than that, it’s a better work table device than most on the market these days. I had looked at a Craftsman brand table, and it was horribly built. If you’re wanting one of the older manufactured B&D Workmates, you’re going to have to hunt for them. Other than that, this one will do just fine!
- This is my second Workmate. They in general are well built and very functional. The 425 has a feature that links the two cranks together to allow one hand operation. There also is a clutch mechanism that supposedly allows the the independent heightening of the two crank handles. However these clutches are so stiff that they do not permit the independent operation of the two cranks. To cure this problem I remover the link belt that ties the two cranks together. This eliminated the one hand operation feature but allows independent tightening of the clamps. The 425 now operates the same as my older Workmate. This is a good thing. Every thing else is top notch and all of the other features work as advertised. This is a quality produce that that is a great tool in any home workshop.
- I like this unit because it’s large enough to do things on but small enough to be used just about anywhere. Also, they’re pretty heavy duty for a fold-up work surface. This is my second one, and I may get a third so I can have one handy wherever I need one.
- I really like my work bench. It is great for my workshop and its the perfect size. The only way that I can see to improve it would be by adding some more orange pegs to it.
- The instructions could have been a bit better. I had 2 springs come off and there was no mention to where they were supposed to be located. I took a guess. But it seems to be a sturdy bench so I will see how it holds up. So far so good.
- Instructions were confusing. You have to rely on the product pictue at the box and figure it out yourself resulting in greater chances of mistakes. The clutch cable gets derailed easily. Not worth as an improvement from the lesser prized model. Cannot figure out how to use the middle board…
