Love them
They are not difficult to assemble, perfect height, slightly heavy but extremely handy. I bought 2 and have no regrets at all. Shipping was fast, they were well boxed and delivered in good shape

Solid compact work bench for a great price.
If you have limited space and need a solid work surface, this works great. A little tricky assembly getting the vice right. Folds down to a nice compact size. Good bargain for the price.

Would have been exellent
The product does everything it is supposed to do. Couldn't give it 5 stars due to the assembly instructions. A video watched and it was assembled in less than the time it took me to unpack it.

was expecting better
assembly instructions sucked. had to go to youtube to see how it was supposed to be put together. Expected the vise tightening handles to move each side of the vise jaw independently, they only work in tandem. Good size table though and it looks like it will hold the stated amount of weight.

Great portable bench
While not purchased with this supplier, I’ve had my WM400 for around forty years and it is still going strong. Glad to see the same basic design employed in the WM425. Fabulous product!

Black & Daecker Workmate WM 425

Describe Yourself:
very dissapointed
I had an older model Workmate that finally bit the dust after almost 25 years of use so I ordered this as a replacement. After a few minutes I realized that the quality is no where near what the older models were. The older models were solid and well built, smooth to operate. These new ones are flimsy and just cheap. The instructions are awful. It's really disappointing to see Black and Decker take something that used to be so well made and make it so flimsy and poorly made. I tried to like it but I couldn't get over how poorly made it is. I'm going to return it and look for an older one on Craigslist. I would easily pay twice what this costs to have one made like the older ones. Are you listening Black and Decker?

I read the reviews and read where the assembly instructions were bad but You Tube had a good video on assembly. I found that to be true. If it wasn't for You Tube I would have been lost. However, it took me about 6 tries to find the correct video. The written instructions were terrible. There should be written instructions on how to find the correct video.

All wood looks like bamboo and was warped and cracked. I just bought this to hold my portable table saw.

How wide is it when fully opened?
A shopper on Oct 10, 2017
What are the table top width and length measurements? What is the vise opening measurement?
rog3rd on Jan 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The Workmate 425 tabletop measures 29 1/8” in width by 20 3/4”
The vise opening has a few different options. As I just got this at the Holidays I have not worked extensively with it. The table top is made up of 3 boards. With all 3 boards installed the vise only opens 1 1/8” via the hand cranks. Then you can take out the middle board, which simply slides out of a groove. That middle board measures 7 1/2 “’s so it adds that much to the vise…..The vise action still only moves that 1 1/8”'s or so, but now you have the greater opening if that makes sense. There is also a method to slide one of the boards on edge to give some height to one side of the vise. Again I haven’t had that much opportunity to use this just yet and there may be other ways to vary the opening. It seems pretty solid. I can also tell you that the instructions aren’t very good, thankfully the only assembly is really getting to table top together.
