Firstly, the instructions. Yes, they are very poor, but not beyond the realms of human intelligence. After a bit of trial and error and thought I was able to figure out which bit went where and to be honest I enjoyed the problem solving exercise.
Secondly the plastic. Yes, it's got plastic bits and plastic is not as good as metal. But it's not cheap plastic, it's the better quality kind that is fit for purpose providing you're careful and remember that it is plastic. It's cheaper and cheaper is ok if it works. And it works.
Thirdly, the metal. It's not thick, but it's sheet steel pressed into load bearing shapes. This makes it lightweight but sturdy. It easily supports my weight sitting on the bench top (I'm 6'2" with a 52" waist and I wear 4XL so I think it's fair to say I'm obese) and there are no razor sharp edges. Some of them could be a little better finished and are a bit on the rough side but none that you'd really be touching for any reason.
One reviewer mentioned the leg springs on the four legs being dangerous. Mine has no leg springs, just 4 moulded plastic guides that use a bit of gentle friction to keep them open or closed.
The top is made from bamboo. Very strong and hard. One surface is marked and the other isn't. The ruled surface might come in handy if you don't need anything too accurate.
The bench dogs are plastic. They have useful grooves in them for supporting round objects. They're not amazing but they are handy and will clamp short pieces of wood solidly enough for planing.
I've managed to plane wood on mine and cut mortises and tenons to make a 6' by 3' dinner table. Would a proper work bench be more sturdy? Yes. But if you're creative with how you support the wood and use your body weight to keep the workmate from wobbling a little then it's actually fine. Sharp tools help as well.
It's been perfect for my needs and space limitations. My one regret is that I didn't get the slightly longer one as there'd be a little more room for working on smaller projects and bits of wood while straddling it.
I had a much older one of these and it was built like a tank. This one isn't even close. Flimsy, lighter metal, thinner bolts, weaker clamp threads, etc
Many observations shared with other reviews.
There is this odd flimsy belt between the two tightening handles, designed to allow you to do one-handed clamping. But it's pointless. Doesn't work properly, and gets in the way of being able to easily tighten the sides independently. I'm close to just cutting it he belt out and binning it.
The 3-postion back board is mounted onto the frame on plastic lugs. I have already partially crushed one of these with a sash clamp. The old version of this workbench had nice strong one-piece steel lugs. It also doesn’t properly ‘lock’ down onto the frame, and a solid sheet of MDF will be enough to prop,it loose.
I haven't tried the tilt function yet, so can't comment on how well it works.
But all in all it seems to be over designed yet under engineered. Very disappointed for what I assumed was their top line model. Black end
Black n Decker have robbed themselves here by losing what they stand for and built a unit promises plenty fro, the packaging, but pointless for serious actual DIY work. Don’t even look at it if you’re a Pro.
Black and Decker should be ashamed of themselves for not testing these instructions on potential customers before selling this product worldwide. I personally will never buy a product from them again that has to be assembled.
It doesn't fold down particularly compact, having a width of about 20cm when folded. If does, however, stand freely when it's folded. Good thing, because you'll need some solid mountings on your garage wall if you want to hang it.
I knocked off a star because the first time I used it, it broke! The centre handle turns both side handles simultaneously by means of some nylon ribbon cables with holes in, the holes locating on sprocket wheels on the outer handles. These bits are made of rather cheap plastic and the retainers which guide the ribbon cables are flimsy. The first time I turned that handle quickly it threw one of the ribbons off its sprocket wheel. It took me 20 minutes of fiddling about trying to relocate the mechanism. That's not a reason not to buy it though. You just need to treat the centre handle with a little more mechanical sympathy than you should probably have to.
It's obviously a lot more expensive than almost every other workmate on sale, but I would suggest it's still decent value. I'd recommend it to a friend.
