"Needed a bench to help my daughter build a summer house. Excellent for holding 6ft lengths of timber whilst cutting to length and making tenons on the ends. Great value for money and sturdy enough as long as you put your foot on the cross member."
"Budget price but excellent value for money, does everything that the more expensive models do, easy and quick to construct, is robust and will hopefully last but at that price its got to be a bargain for one and all."
"A budget item and does exactly what it says on the tin!!! It's cheap, it works, it's no frills and It was dead easy and quick to put together I was thankful I had it... Holding items with a handy ruler built on to the surface made building my fence and cutting wood easier would definitely recommend for DIY but anything with more frequent use I would probably go for something. That will last longer but time will tell"
"Easier to assemble than I'd expected from reading other reviews - there was a helpful tip in one of the reviews about using your own ratchet spanner rather than the one provided.
A careful read of the instructions in full before starting made it a fifteen minute maximum job - so I used it for my first little project straight away.
It 's not flash, not bells and whistles and it's not two or three times the price! It does exactly what I need it to do, it's sturdy and stable and I'm very happy with it.
I haven't been a Screwfix customer for long and I can't imagine what I was doing trying to get to the local Damage It Yourself before it closed. The opening hours and the service are perfect for me and will be first port of call in future."
"Bought this to help my DIY efforts. Easy pick up, instructions OK but read all of them! Quite sturdy and folds up well for storage. Have used it briefly and it seems to fit my particular bill. Recommended."
"Bought this as a gift for my Son in Law to replace the one my husband managed to break when he fell on it while carrying a lump hammer (everyone has little accidents occasionally - my husband usually costs money with his). As this is a replacement I know that is well up for the job and my Son in Law will be well pleased with it on Christmas Day."
"I'm a keen DIYer and I needed a portable work bench. Looked at the usual suspects and read all the reviews on various sites and opted for this one. Once I had read the instructions and laid out the parts it took me less than 30 minutes to assemble ready for use. The bench is solid and well made. Would definitely recommend it."
"Logic tells you that you can't expect one of these units to fully compete with a high end expensive workmate type of unit but what you do get is a useful stable work-surface upon which to work.
For such a low cost, the unit is surprisingly stable and certainly not too difficult to assemble with the aid of simple tools.
The only slight downsides are that the unit doesn't quite fold flat ( to around 7 inches) and the vice action is a bit limited but certainly not deal breakers. The low tool racks are a nice touch. I initially only bought one of these for a single job I had in mind at the time but it worked so well that I'm off today to buy another as they'll be even more versatile in pairs. For what you pay and what you get...a good deal indeed!"
"Ideal for a DIY man like me. A lot easier to store when not in use, easy to put together and fits in the car which my big work bench did not. Only used it once at this time but I am sure it will be of good use in the future"
