"Excellent sturdy workbench, goes together easily like the old dexion flat pack type shelving. Only do up screws had tight at first until you have assembled the whole unit less the worktop or you'll struggle getting all the other screws in as you go. Make sure it's on a flat surface then tighten everything up, draws in worktop on, job done. The extra little bag of plates and screws i worked out to be for fastening it to the shed wall, presumably to stop the bench tipping forward if you had a heavy vice on it. Before putting the worktop on the plates just overlap onto the to of the bench the screw the plate to the wall. Buying another."
"Really pleased with this new bench - a great addition to my small garage. Seems to be great quality for the money and went together with no real problems. Here's three tips for when you assemble yours : 1. Only tighten the bolts finger tight until the WHOLE bench is built - you need the flexibility until the last two horizontal top braces go on. They wont fit otherwise and you'll have to undo a lot of bolts. 2. Make sure you mount the two drawer sides INSIDE the fold of the vertical supports. 3. Ignore the bag of little black metal plates and screws. The helpline says they're not part of anything and shouldn't be there ! I'm also going to varnish/protect the worktop -it's unsealed and doesn't do the rest of the bench justice. Hope this helps."
"Assembled my bench this afternoon. Relatively simple enough, though I did have some head scratching and partial strip at a couple of stages - 1 was I fitted the drawer panels on the wrong side of the upright flanges, meaning the drawers were too wide for the runners, plus fitting the horizontal bench top supports took a bit of working out like a chinese puzzle - all became crystal clear when I realised the support "weaved" from one end, past the centre upright and on to the other end.
I would have preferred it if the bench allowed you to chose which end you have the drawers, as I would have preferred them on the left, to keep them clear of my vice on the right hand side. Minor point though.
The instructions do not say what to do with the 6 squares of metal, plus attaching screws, that come as part of the kit. Any ideas please? Mine are currently still sitting in their plastic bag."
"Once assembled its a great bench. excellent value.
Worth noting it's a be of a mare to assemble. It arrived with a bag full of nuts and bolts and you really have to pay close attention to the diagrams which are tiny. Its easy to get things the wrong way around and not notice until a few steps later.
Would I buy again sure however the porduct ould be vastly improved if they had 4 A4 size diagrams."
"Received well packaged, it is excellent quality, simple to put together and extremely sturdy, the assembled weight being over 35kg, ‘speaks for itself’. The gloss black paint finish is high quality, so much so I’m loathed to put anything on the shelves in case I scratch them. Masses of shelf space, one full lower shelf, a 2/3 upper shelf, with two deep 1/3 easy-glide draws. Having browsed the Internet I was unable to find anything of similar looking design and matching quality for under £200. This workbench is excellent value for money, and I would highly recommend it."
"Excellent packaging. Overall - good quality, sturdy construction. Screws together like giant meccano without all the holes. Assembly instructions OK but would be better if top and bottom was also identified especially at step 1. Doesn't take long to assemble. Black paint finish is good. Tip - don't fully tighten the screws until 90% assembled otherwise metal drawers may be stiff on runners."
