Innovative Features and Benefits
The SKIL X-Bench was designed with the homeowner in mind. The workstation comes folded for easy storage in tight spaces. It folds out, creating a working surface that measures 53 x 23 inches. The steel legs are independently adjustable, allowing users to set the table at the height that best suits their needs, from 24 inches up to 34 inches.

The SKIL X-Bench is loaded with features. The new and innovative cut channel, the first cutting solution of this kind in the industry, is located in the center of the bench. Two sections of the tabletop can be pulled apart, exposing the cut channel, which can accommodate SKILsaws up to 7-1/4 inch. The tabletop is constructed from a tough MDF (medium density fiberboard) material and features peg holes that accept the wedge dog clamps (two included with table), allowing users to secure materials to the table when using the cut channel. Ruler markings are provided on the MDF wood surface for accurate measurements. Additional features include a miter- gauge slot and a bump-off power switch.

When you've wrapped up a project or you're ready to take the X-Bench on the go, portability is a snap. The steel legs fold up and the table folds in half. Just grab a hold of the carrying handle and you're ready to go.

Just received my table. It appears to be well built and I believe it will serve the purpose of my purchase. I have what I call my "portable wood working shop". I have the Ridgid portable table saw (great saw) and a portable router table. One of the main reasons for purchasing this table is to sit my Bosch router table on it. I have a garage with enough room to store all my wood working equipment but not enough room to use it in the garage.(Can't stand the dust either) When I'm ready to do wood working I move the equipment to the asphalt driveway in front of the garage. The table will be used for various projects. The table is heavy or I would give it 5 stars. Maybe more aluminum could have been used in its design. The legs are easily adjustable and very sturdy. Also a negative is the fact that the table got cheaper before it was delivered.

To get a common gripe out of the way; the packaging was adequate but pretty dinged up, the table was just fine. UPS pretty much cuts out at around 35lbs (16KG) yes they will accept up to 50lbs (70lbs?) but with one person on the truck these heavy packages are problematic. The heaver packages should really go UPS or FedEx freight (up to 10,000lbs).

Having got that out of the way. This is a very flexible workbench that is easy to collapse and set up. Height is up to 34" so it is just fine with my Festool MFT800 (now discontinued and on blow out) and is about .6" lower than my band saw table. If this proves a problem I can block up the legs. The leg adjustment is very easy per leg (just unclamp adjust then reclamp [clamp holes are about every 2-3" and you can't clamp in between]) and one leg has a screw type leveler. The table is heavy and very well made. The weight is an advantage unless you plan to move it round a lot. If that is the case a good set of wheels might be worth the money. (addendum, a friend took an old dolly and made a bracket to hold the folded table on edge, easy to make that kind of bracket and relatively cheap.)

I got it because of the flexibility with the insert plates and because of the split design that allows sawing or plunging a domino into a gap.

REVISION:
I down rated this because there aren't many holes in the bench top and they are ill placed. The manual says that they are specific sizes of wood, but regardless they are just plain inadequate in numbers.

The supplied switch was very stiff and the plastic broke at about the 6 or 7th use.

The adapters are ill designed.

Just received workbench. On first lookover it seems to be a solid work surface. Maybe a little too heavy. Legs are a small struggle to lengthen. Sliding saw channel is created by right side table sliding. The components associated with this action seem a little light duty. Overall I think this is a solid product for the price.

p.s. my bench has arrived damaged. Left table top has been smashed in several locations. Will contact Skil Monday and will update this review. Good news....Skil is shipping table top and I will replace. Good customer service.

After owning this bench for a month I would say that my experience and satisfaction with both product and Skil's customer support are very good.
Workstation is a very solid product and my customer support experience was very good as well.

Buy this workstation if you want a workbench that is portable and solid.

My X-Bench arrived without any damage and is a very sturdy workbench. It folds up well and stores in a fairly small space. It has adjustable legs that seem well built and sets up in about a minute or less. I like the option of splitting the work surface to act as a saw channel. You can lay piece of lumber on it and carefully saw across the table keeping both ends of the lumber supported. The clamps and dogs are handy so I bought a second set. My only gripe is that the accessory table inserts (router, etc.) are way to pricey for what they are. If you need a secondary work surface with clamping ability, this is a great COOL tool.

This is a darned stout portable work bench at a good price. I was surprised at how much I like it. It is heavy but anything lighter would be flimsy. My only criticism is that the top is MDF which makes pretty fragile on the corners and edges. In fact my first one arrived with a damaged corner from shipping (point made) but with Amazon's return policy, they shipped a replacement and took back the first entirely at their expense.

I don't have much free space in my garage. I needed a place to do small fix-it jobs and hobby work. I like the adjustable legs because they allow me to sit on my stool if I'm doing something that requires extra time. Very easy to set up and very sturdy. I also bought the tail vise but I haven't used it yet. I am a 65 year old female and it isn't too heavy for me to lift.

Guess I lucked out or they've figured out how to ship this thing. Mine actually arrived with no damage. What a great accessory item for the shop. Now my main workbench can remain less cluttered and when I need floor room it's a snap to put the x-bench up and way. So far it's working great. Very solid table. Easy to change attachments.
