Excellent tool, light weight and very portable!
My Father in-law gave me this portable work mate for my birthday. This is perfect for mounting my miter saw too. The vice feature works great and seems very durable. I can also fold it down and hang it on the wall. Would definitely recommend this for any homeowner looking for portability and just a small work space to bring any job from the floor to your waist! Great gift!

I've wanted a Workmate for a number of years and finally took the plunge. I came up with a project that this will definitely simplify. I'm hoping it will lead to many others!

it works for the purpose I intended it for . I bought this one because I have a Workmate that is over 30 years old that is heavy difficult to raise.

Quality workmate
I'm very happy with this workmate. Seem to be solid bench which will last years. CPO has been great to deal with & will continue to shop at this online store.

I bought this to replace a Workmate I had for many years. This model is made in China and the quality shows. While assembly is relatively easy, one of the cranks is very difficult to turn even after being re-inserted and oiled. The wood jaws already had a splinter showing, even before being used. There are sharp edges all over the Workmate. The problem is that there are not many of these types of mini-workbenches available. We customers are not as important as we used to be to B&D. I'd pay more for a quality product built in the US by US workers

Great product. Gives you extra hands.
I use this to hold woodwork for initial and final finishing. It is also good to hold a brass trimmer when trimming rifle brass before reloading. This is a great tool and I bought it to replace the Workmate 220 that I have used for over 25 years. Hopefully this one will last me the rest of my life.

excellent, reliable tool
I haven't used older Workmate models, which everyone reports as having sturdier construction. This model does include some plastic components, but at the same time it's worked exceptionally well for me so far. I've successfully used the work surface, dogs, and clamping features for both power tool work (routing) and hand tool work (hand saws, chisels, sanding) without any difficulties. It's wonderful to have such a steady work surface and holding tool that can be stored out of the way when not in use.

What are the major differences between the WM425 and the WM255? Is the 425 worth the extra cost?
Tim on Dec 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Definitely yes. I have the 225 and one drawback is that the two separate boards, while good enough for clamping, are too small to be of use for those frequent occasions when all you need is a kind of small table to perform some task, and all you have at hand is the workmate. The 425 has much wider boards that make a much nicer small work table, so my answer is go for the 425. Amclaussen.
