I always do thorough Googling to check out what others think of a product before I make my purchases. I saw more than one review of Black & Decker Workmate products complain about the product being delivered in wrecked packaging with parts missing. I do remember a time many years ago when I ordered a Workmate from a B&D retail store (nearby mall) and it was delivered in such pitiful condition that the store gave me another one and let me keep the first one which I was able to salvage without too much trouble. So, with my own prior experience, and that of some current reviewers on sites such as this (Amazon), I hesitated to order another Workmate by mail. Thus, a couple of weeks ago, I purchased a small Workmate Saw Horse and Vise from Home Depot for pickup at my local Home Depot store. I was so pleased with this little beauty that I took the chance and ordered the largest (to my knowledge) Workmate made, the BDST-11000 Workmate Workbench (this review) from Amazon since Home Depot didn't carry it. Well, It arrived today.
It took me less time to "assemble" the 11000 than it did the smaller Saw Horse and Vise---no more than twenty minutes. That's because the hardest part is getting it out of the box (which, by the way, was delivered by UPS in pristine condition!). There are only six bolts to attach---four to secure the larger bamboo work surface and two for the smaller one. Everything else is already assembled. The six bolts thread into "nuts" that are already integral to the main assembly.
I read some reviews that were critical of the quick adjust feature (the crank in the center of the front plate) that moves the (smaller) work surface . I disagree and think it's a brilliant idea executed equally brilliantly. This feature is for gross adjustments to close large empty distances between the clamping surfaces of the Workmate and the work piece. Once one gets these in proper position for clamping, one simply switches to the two side knobs to firmly tighten down on the work piece. A great feature!
This product is quality all the way. The heavy gauge steel of which it is constructed combined with the intelligent structural design of the folding mechanism make for a workbench that is rock steady in use. It is REALLY rock steady! I'm already contemplating purchasing a second one for our lake property. Along with its outstanding stability in use, it features massive latches that securely lock it in both the closed and open positions. The latches are released by pulling out on a large orange knob on one side of the workbench and they automatically engage when the bench is fully unfolded for use, and folded for storage, with a distinctive, and very reassuring, click. The smaller Workmate product that I bought a couple of weeks ago has no such locking feature. This is probably because a locking feature on that unit is not as desirable as it is on the large 11000.
As a last comment: When folded up for storage, the 11000 is free-standing and can be placed anywhere out of the way without further ado. Of course, it can also be hung on wall hooks, if desired. You could even slide it under your bed if you're a college student living in a dorm or small apartment. Wish I had had one back in '57 at Pratt.
Additional Comment: After assembling the Workmate 11000, I searched the product manual and carton for an indication of "country of origin" and came up empty. I was hoping to find a "Made in USA" stamp. However, I also did NOT find a "China" marking, either, and, would bet that this little number is produced stateside, or, in Europe where B&D has a major presence.
For the time being I put it on upside-down (print-side down). Then I contacted Black & Decker online and asked them to send me a replacement part. I included a picture of the assembled workbench with the one board being upside down.
A few weeks later I received the replacement part and put it on.
Also, I just had the middle crank fail (the weak plastic belt has slipped out of alignment). The individual side cranks still work but they are slower when doing gross adjustments. (Note, I never put any force on the middle crank and its belt still slipped off after a few days of use.).
Bottom-line: Overall the bench works as well as I expected, I had read the complaints regarding quality control before purchasing and figured I would take my chances. Luckily B & D replaced the defective part I had, but the convenient middle crank failed just like for so many others here.
B&D built a decent metal frame then used plastic instead of $2.00 worth of steel parts.
I spent 15 minutes putting the plastic drive chain back on the sprocket right out of the box.
None of the drive and crank parts look as if you could put any real torque on them without breaking plastic parts.
For $125 you would expect more for your money.

Reviewed in Mexico on July 10, 2017
The nylon/plastic connectors are not threaded so the assembly bolts need to be forced at risk of stripping out the drilled hole. I fortunately had use of a metric thread tap to use on the unthreaded nylon/plastic connectors.
The "wood" work platforms, one fixed and other on the adjustable slide, are made of 3 ply laminated bamboo and were cracked along seams and warped about 1/16 inch out of plane.
I wish I had done more shopping for alternate equivalent device.
The box that I received the unit in had been opened and retapped. I should not have accepted delivery but was not home at time of delivery. That would have been signal of something deficient!
