This workbench is very well made and very sturdy.
S. May
It's a great product and I would recommend to anyone who needs a extra hand while working around the house.
James Dulin
This one is made in China, and like most products from China the quality is poor.

My Workmate "was" the handiest thing around. It folds flat, is quite stable, and is nicely adjustable. The problem is that the worm screw parts and table mounting brackets are made of cheap PLASTIC. It didn't take long, but one by one, they've all cracked and broken. The particle board surface also chips and splinters with use. I think B&D designed this product to die after a year or two. I would give it 5 stars if all the critical mounting parts were made out of metal. B&D needs to at least sell replacement parts which I haven't been able to find anywhere.

I received the B&D 225 today, Oct. 18, 2010, and just minutes ago finished assembly. I'm near 60 and have a nicely equipped machine shop at home and do welding, both gas and arc. I purchased the 225 to make a portable welding bench by adding a piece of 1/4" steel plate 24x36" that sits on an angle iron frame that raises the steel top about 8 inches off the 225 and that will be clamped in the jaws for stability.

My father bought one of the early aluminum frame Workmates, must have been in the 1970s, that just broke last year, 2009. I felt it was a valuable addition to my shop not only as a temporary tool platform for the planer or chop saw but also as a portable and versatile work surface. I've felt a little lost without it so it was time to replace it with a new Workmate.

I studied and read about the various models, including the 425, and decided for $70 delivered from Amazon that the 225 was exactly what I needed. Below is my immediate impression and feedback on the "Workmate 225 Type 5". No, I can't tell you what Type 1 through 4 were all about.

No where did I read that this 225 was as simplified as it is. There is no longer 2 movable jaws. Only the front jaw is movable. The rear jaw can be fixed in one of 3 positions against which the front jaw exerts clamping pressure. I thought about this for a few minutes and decided that simple was better. Simple means fewer parts. Simple means it does the same job with fewer parts. There's nothing negative about fewer parts as long as the tool does the same job, and it does.

In one of the reviews a buyer lamented at the "plastic" parts.

My father has had a workmate for years. It had provided about 5 years of faithful 'moderate' to 'light' duty service. It's a must for space starved garages or workshops, and is fantastic for clamping. One of its drawbacks is its unwieldy center of mass when it folded up and placed on its side. It has a tendency to want to tip over if bumped, and in a confined garage that can be a problem. Alas, about a month ago it fell over and broke the plastic worm gear follower. It is a shame that they selected a thermoset plastic for this part. Because of its lack of ductility when it hit the deck it shattered into a several pieces. At first pass for the designers to make a part of this complex geometry out of plastic was the obvious choice, however, a die casting of the same part would have been much better.(...)

I currantly own two WM's I bought one of original and later a 225 (I think) These tools are like having extra man on the job. Have used as clamp for planing/pipe clamp/a sheet metal brake. I use them as temp mounts for bench mount type machinery. Jigs set up for routing table on site. These tools are used for everything and I am now going to add a third to my shop with the 425. I can see this as a great setup table for small projects. Bigger jobs with 2x extensions clamped and plywood work top (bench top). Perfect for site work, small shop and large shop too.

Don't get me wrong - the Workmate is a very useful "tool" to have around - it's just that I have the "misfortune" of perspective: I also have an older version of the workmate (actually the model 200) to compare to. The "new" version uses metal that's *half* the thickness of the old Workmate, and the jaws are made from 5/8" bamboo vs. 7/8" laminated industrial board. The new version does allow for more adjustment in the jaws, but the mechanism for this makes the jaws feel flimsy. Like I said, the Workmates are nice to have around and pretty much worth the money - but it's just sad to see that time and technology have produced a less robust product. I guess that's just one more sign of the times....

Deserves a spot in the design hall of fame, this well-constructed foldable bench is responsible for saving thousands of dining room chairs and picnic tables from their accidental scaring and destruction. No longer will you drill through your wood project and into the kitchen countertops, gone are the days where you very foolished used you knee to balance the board you were cutting with the radial saw. The vise is very useful for clamping small glue jobs -- though often not wide enough anything larger -- and serves and an extra pair of hands when you need them most.

A B&D Workmate was the first workbench I bought, and it's still in use 12 years later. I've used it to make tables, cabinets and book cases, to hold pipe for plumbing work, to support powertools and a dozen other things as well. Mine is sitting at home supporting a miterbox I'm using to cut window jamb extensions.
