- inexpensive and ships fast.
- quick assembly (23 minutes for me).
- functional and works as advertised.
- folds easily for transport to job-site and to stow in a work van.
- decent quality design and materials for the cost.
- all the whiners who write speeches about how "difficult" this is to assemble and the Chinese workmanship and lacking instructions. It's a BENCH! It comes with 8 nuts and bolts and four lag bolts with some plastic spacers, worm gears and feet - done. These scathing reviews make me wonder about our American intellect and skill with simple tasks such as assembling a BENCH. This is a $29 folding bench that works as advertised. Perhaps we need to spend more time with basic reasoning skills and less time writing reviews. If you received missing parts or defective hardware (which I did not) that's one thing - but it sounds to me like the problem is a simple lacking in ability to put a puzzle together. This workmate is WELL worth $29. Suck it up America.
EDIT: Amazon wouldn't let me post the link, but if you search Youtube for "Black and Decker workmate 125 assembly" you will find it.
As lots of other people pointed out, the installation instructions are terrible, which is the main downside to this product. But if you watch the video (and pause it at key points to look at the workmate in various stages of assembly) you shouldn't have a problem.
A few other important things to note:
- Don't use the stupid cotter pins to hammer in the handles! Its really hard to get them in properly and you risk hurting yourself or bending the handle out of shape with the hammer. As another reviewer pointed out, use #6-32 1 & 1/4 nuts and bolts instead. Buy a pack of 6 ( 99 cents from home depot), you will need the other 4 to resolve the next issue....
- The rubber feet will fall off constantly, which is annoying. To fix that you can drill holes through the feet and legs so that you can install nuts and bolts to hold them on (see picture). Drilling a 9/64 hole will be enough to make the #6-32 bolts fit in.
I know.... it would have been nice if Black & Decker just manufactured the thing this way, and just provided you with the $0.99 pack of bolts. But even with these shortcomings, it still deserves 5 stars when you factor in extremely low price tag ($29), and more importantly, the fact that once it is assembled properly, its a solid product. More versatile and useful than many other things which cost much more.
I bought two, made these two changes and love them. I put a sliding miter saw on one, opened the clamp until it firmly pushed into the legs of the saw and now they are like one unit. If that had not worked, I would have mounted saw to plywood with a 2x4 attached and just clamped down on the 2x4. Saved $100 over buying the specific stand for my saw and this one even folds up (yes the saw stays connected and folds down with the top). The second will be for jig saw and other table top work. Total cost: ~$50 with the current B&D $10 discount.
On the upside....well made ( all the holes line up) nicely painted, pretty good instrux, good fasteners, very nicely boxed.
Still..a 350 lb rating ?????

El armado es un poco latoso, nada grave, pero si requiere un rato y un martillo y un desarmador plano.
Lo consideré tan buena inversión al precio que está en Amazon (menos de 700 pesos) que compré un segundo. La calidad del segundo fue un poquito diferente pero se entiende las variaciones de manufactura. Simplemente uno de los tornillos que manejan la prensa no estaba completamente recto y la impresión en el bambú estaba un poco “borrosa”.
Una buena opción para quien busca un banco de trabajo para carpintería y reparaciones caseras. Es portátil y no pesa mucho.
El único pero que le encontré fue al momento de ensamblarlo ya que al parecer las instrucciones están equivocadas al momento de nombrar las piezas "R" y "L" creo que están invertidas, es decir, la pieza "R" es la "L" y viceversa, por eso recomiendo dejarse guiar por las imágenes del ensamblaje y por el sentido común, aclaro, ninguna parte esta equivocada o faltante simplemente las nombraron al revez, incluye todas las herramientas necesarias para ensamblar.
(with apologies to Amazon for my too-many edits)
I was being cautious, and I took my time putting this together. Easy does it; DO take your time. Here are Watch-Out-Fors. Letters such as (F) relate to B&D letters in the B&D instruction manuals.
1. Good instructions from B&D come with your workbench, plus B&D has a nice video plus there is a PDF, virtually word-for-word the same. I had both the PDF and the video on my computer as I assembled the workbench.
2. Do you have a small steel ratchet set, with a 13 mm socket? Good. You'll need it. (Plus a 10 mm socket would be good.)
3. There are two (F) spacers. Identify them right when you begin, because you need them in Step 3, and the instructions mention them just once and glide on by. Don't see them as "left-overs" at the end. (If you do, no big deal; you can still put them in.)
4. Assemble this workbench gently. You can tighten everything later on.
5. There is a caution about the two (E) locking knobs. GO EASY ON THESE, during assembly and use. They are only plastic.
6. Steps 6 and 7 require three hands, or else, if you have hands like my wife says are suspiciously good at unfastening bra straps single-handedly, then you can do these steps rather enjoyably. Be in a good mood. They don't call us handymen for nothing.
7. NOTE: Still dealing with Steps 6 and 7, the four (B) self-threading hex head bolts will be ever so happy you were ready with your 13mm socket ratchet. The plastic included part (U) nut driver is fairly good for its being plastic, but here you really want steel.
8. Step 9 wants you to use a hammer twice, to force a roll pin into each of two plastic parts. WHOA!! I would not go gentle into that good night; meaning, I WOULD NOT WHACK AWAY WITH A HAMMER at a delicate unbraced plastic part mostly in mid-air. So, STOP your assembly here, and carefully lie your almost-finished Workmate down on the kitchen floor or wherever. Find a small end of 2x2 or 2x4 and snug it under the handle so the plastic part can take the hammer blows. Be sure to manually pull the screw assembly (N) as far out away from the parts you could damage. (You'll understand when you do this.) Use a nail to rotate the same (N) piece so the tiny hole points straight up. Now use a scrap of hardwood or any kind of steel thing to give you a few inches of HEIGHT, and then try your hammer blows. Guess what: it works!
You want to think ahead, and do all this with patience. Naturally: you're a carpenter.
The steel on this Workmate is WAY stronger than the silly steel on the item I returned to the store, by the way. And the 350-pound limit shows in print right on the Workmate 125's surface, so I think it really is capable. Take a few more suggestions from another video online, especially one by Marty about his "tricked out" Workmate 400 (a bigger version) with his additions such as his home-built Bench Bull.
Recomendada si se cuenta con poco espacio en casa y/o para trabajos caseros.
Las manivelas son de plástico y no muy precisas, pero para uso casero la recomiendo ampliamente.
Me ha funcionado para mis proyectos, he cortado madera con una caladora y no se ha movido para nada la mesa, la he ocupado como base para perforar con el dremel y tampoco me ha fallado.
La compré de oferta y creo que por el precio menor a $800 es muy buena opción.
No me gusto que algunas piezas son de plástico especialmente donde van los tornillos que aprietan el banco y los que fijan en si el banco cuando estas trabajando es muy importante que estas piezas fueran de metal.
Black&Deker este banco esta bien sólo eso.
Yet to start using it but build quality is good for the price.
