Product Description

8-Ft. Black Workbench Has Full-Width Steel Frame for Rigid Support

The Craftsman Professional 8-Ft. black workbench is highly functional and durable in your garage or shop. It features a rigid steel beam below its corrosion-protected top of baked enamel. The steel frame provides stability and reliability to get you through job after job. The high-quality bench supports a load capacity of 2,500lbs. With a spacious eight-foot width, you have plenty of working room as you lay out tools, materials and other necessities. Enjoy the integrated peg-board sides to hang your tools within comfortable reach. The banded fireboard top resists both stains and scrapes, so you don't worry about damaging the surface.

The 8-Ft. black workbench has a sleek look in solid black with a glossy brown top. It has a full-width metal backsplash that prevents your items from falling off the surface onto the floor. On the backsplash, note the tool organization slots that provide you storage. Extra storage comes in the two legs; the interior legs have built-in shelves for extra storage. The 180lb workbench is easy to assemble and has adjustable feet. When you want to maximize your storage space, add in the Craftsman VersaTrack wall system and accessories, sold separately. The Craftsman line is well-known for its durable storage products.

Be careful with this one
This bench is very heavy duty, but a bit misleading, you have to do 100% of the work yourself, nothing predrilled here. Also, the instructions are a bit misleading too. You have to take the time to measure both sides in order to get a centered product. The instructions tell you to measure 8 inches from right side. You'll be off center if you do that, i didnt bother to put the guide rails for the basket on, it was much more of a chore to use them then to leave them off. It's well made, but a pain to assemble, then you'll need some assistance to flip the table upright I'm 6ft3, 210 lbs, of Airborne Infantryman and I made sure i got two guys to help as to not pull the screws out of the table top. All said and done a great work surface, but it'll take some patience and ingenuity to get together properly.

Another Problem with Unit's Legs
Like a couple other reviewers, I also had a problem with the unit's legs. The holes for the legs to screw into were too small. Since it would've taken two weeks and at least twice as many headaches to get the new part, I just came up with a workaround. A lot of time wasted on this.

Sturdy Bench

I had given this four starts because the directions are a bit sketchy and there is plenty room for interpretation. Other than that is a great product for the money. I understand the frustrations of others in regards to ease of assembly. If you are not an experienced in a trade related to construction this would be overwhelming. I will be putting Formica top on this because the surface is not up to my needs. I will say use some type of glue with the lag screws because the MDF. I put a little Gorilla glue on the screws before setting them into place.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

buy a kit off the web

This is a box of parts, unless you have carpentry experience do not buy this kit. you would be just as well off downloading a plan from the web and going to the hardware store. there are no pilot holes, no guide marks, just plans. you need drills drivers squares saw horses etc and more than one person. I am a gunsmith not a carpenter.

Watch out

Beware! the 8' backwall (Model# 14944) and th 5 drawer module (Model# 10139) DO NOT FIT this bench and the only thing "customer service" will do is let you return it (if it's within 60 days) at your expense. The bench is nice but not upgradeable and after almost 20 years and a whole bunch of money spent on craftsman, the expierience I had with CS about this bench has made me decide to part company and take my money elsewhere.

Nice bench

This is a nice bench but dont buy anything to go with it... like the back wall or draws. I got this as a gift with the back wall and 5 draw add on only to find out that none of the parts match up. I would have returned it if it didn't weigh so much in the first place. It seems like a solid bench and after I got done cutting the bench and drilling some holes to make the back wall fit it was very nice. Although I cant use the draws. Sears needs to work on both their descriptions of products and their directions to put them together. Putting everything together was a project all in itself.

Craftsman 8 FT Professional workbench!

Awesome workbench! Very sturdy and easy to assemble. Looks great and has plenty of room for all your projects. You will need a pickup or large van to pick it up. Also ordered 8 FT metal peg board which attaches to bench. You do have to measure and drill your own holes when assembling.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great work bench, but do not purchase if you want to upgrade the bench

I really like this workbench and it looks great in my garage. It took some effort to put together, but it was worth it. If you plan to upgrade to a different countertop (stainless steel or butcher block) though, be sure to not purchase this product; you need only purchase the workbench frame (w/out the countertop) and the preferred countop. I made this mistake and was left with the standard 8' countertop that I had to simply give away.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Tabletop not waterproof

The work bench is strong and a very heavy table. DO NOT put water on the tabletop for any length of time because the tabletop will bubble up. It takes away the looks of a very good looking work bench. I do like the ability to adjust the table height which saves on my back being 6'3" I have had projects where I am working in front of it for a length of time.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great Work Bench

I truely enjoy this work bench. It took on around 30 mintues to assemble and is perfect for my needs. I was sold on this work bench for not only the Craftsman Pro name, but the additional shelves built into it. If you buy this bench, buy the bachwall too. I did.. I plan on buying the rolling and wall cabinets to go with this set up.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
