Updated February 21, 2017

A Workmate is used as an extra pair of hands for the handyman's work area. The Workmate is designed to support several hundred pounds. It is a portable work bench that can be folded to save space and can be moved easily. The legs and frame are constructed of steel with a sturdy wooden bench top. It can be used for parallel and vertical clamping as well as a sawhorse. The workbench is a handy accessory for the person that enjoys doing home projects.

Boards can be glued together and secured to allow maximum pressure while drying.

Odd-shaped objects can be held using the grip swivels and holes in the top of bench.

Horizontal grooves are designed to grip pipes while cutting.

A ruler is marked permanently along the side for convenience.

Notches allow the top to move to accommodate different size boards.
