Very high-quality workbench, competitively priced & looks great!

I just recently got around to assembling this workbench, and I am extremely pleased with the finished product.

The quality of the packaging was top notch. Lots of styrofoam padding and protective sheathing surround all the major components, and all necessary hardware was accounted for. I've read comments by others who found dents and scratches on their parts, but I have no complaints in that area. The bottom side of the work surface did have a couple scuffs on it, but they were very minor in severity, and pretty much inconsequential considering they are completely hidden from plain sight. Perhaps the packaging and/or transport process has been improved as a result of past complaints, or maybe I just got lucky.

Assembly was very straight forward. I put it together by myself in about 3 hours, though I highly recommend getting a second person to help. There are very few parts to put together, but it does requires making some measurements and drilling some holes, so the quality of the assembled product is highly influenced by the amount of care and precision put forth by the builder(s). Just take it slow, triple check all measurements and alignment, and savor the results.

This bench is rock solid, and I believe it definitely meets or exceeds the needs of the vast majority of home garage setups. I was somewhat worried that the black coating would scratch and chip easily, but after banging it good a few times during assembly when a wrench or ratchet slipped with no blemishes resulting, my fears have been alleviated. Let's face it, any workbench that sees some serious work is inevitably going to get some cuts and bruises over time, but I now know it will take some hard shots to make that happen.

Both the metal and wooden surfaces clean off very easily, and you can really make the metal shine by using some car wax on it. I realize that aesthetics may not be as high a priority for a piece destined to see some punishing work performed on and around it, but the instructions say waxing it will help fend off scratches, and the bonus of looking great can't hurt!

The slots and holes in the backsplash for holding various items are great, as are the pegboard holes in both legs. I find the height of the work surface to be very comfortable, though if you happen to be on the shorter side, it may be kind of high up. I also purchased the backwall for this bench, though I haven't taken it out of the box yet. I plan to do so shortly, and will put up a review on that as well.

I highly recommend considering this workbench if you are seeking a tough and solid, yet very attractive product. I cannot stress this enough though: take your time putting it together and ensure the accuracy of your measurements and how everything lines up before drilling and fastening! Some people may not be thrilled by the extra work of having to drill the holes, but I actually see this as a good thing since it gives you the ability to make the fitment as precise as possible. It's a double-edged sword though, so if you decide you just want to get it done and over with and throw it together haphazardly, you can expect commensurate results.

Unless you are running some kind of insane industrial grade operation out in your garage, this bench will not let you down.

Be mindful of dimensions
Well made workbench with heavy gauge metal and solid top, but be mindful that it is relatively tall and not very deep. 24" of depth is not a lot of useful depth, and the height makes it impossible to sit at it with a regular chair or office chair. You will need a swivel stool. Even for standing work it is too tall for my tastes.

Quality Control Issues

I found this product to have defects. Quality control seems poor to non-existent. For a variety of reasons I could not in good faith recommend this product to anyone.

Great base

This is a great base for any work area. It is very sturdy and a great height for taller people.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Nice quality workbench

The bench was fairly easy to put together. I chose to install casters, which fit the existing threads, instead of the standard legs which makes it a couple of inches taller. I appreciate the extra height. My only complaint is that the top seems to scratch easily. Overall, a very nice bench for the money.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Completely Impressed

Nice, solid construction. The steel is thick and heavy (for this type of application) and the design reinforces the top for added strength. It took me about an hour to put it together, but it could have been done in less time - I mounted a power strip under the left side of the work surface and a network switch (I'm using this as a technical workstation) on the rear. There are only two things I can think of which would make this better: 1. - Use a powder coating on the steal to prevent scratches 2. - Give it to me for free. (LOL) Great product. I highly recommend.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Decent bench, but too tall.

Unfortunately, Sears removed their best benches from their inventory...I had four of them and they just stopped making them and went to this. Well-constructed, but table is a bit too tall unless you're six-foot in height.

Nice garage workbench

Very sturdy, easily put together and seems durable. Not crazy about the top, looks like a getto countertop. Will probably replace it later on. Also inside dimension is pretty small, cant fit too much under it with a stool.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

workbench

Had to return it because both leg pieces were the same and it could not be assembled. The store did not have any more in stock. It appeared to be sturdy and probably would have worked if it could have been put together.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
