This is a great stand for the price. I was looking to something to mount my bench top drill press and grinder, this stand fit both perfectly. I took another reviewers suggestion and put 5/16 casters on the legs that greatly firmed up the frame and made the workstation mobile in my shop. Couldn?t be more pleased for the price.
Bought this to be a first real workbench for a 10 year old boy. He loves it. We were able to put it together with out any problem, he did almost all the assembly. bought it because of the price as a last minute christmas gift and it may be his favorite!
I bought this stand to hold two power tools: a disc/belt sander and a small miter saw. Both fit on the top perfectly and were well within the weight capacity of the stand. However, with space at a premium in my shop/garage, I needed to have the stand on casters. Fortunately, the legs have plastic feet that accommodated ones with 5/16" stems. It does make the work height a little on the high side, which is no problem for average height to taller users. Before adding the casters, I did notice that the legs "swayed" a bit when you tried to slide the stand on its feet, but now that's been corrected with the rolling base.
I just bought two of these to use as legs to make a very sturdy reloading bench. I also own one of these, which I purchased at Sears about 17 years ago. This older model did not have any shelf or table top. I made these myself. For one thing, the sheet metal used to make the frame is 1.12 mm in thickness as compared to my older model which is 1.24 mm in thickness. While this 10% difference may not seem like much I was able to twist the legs almost twice as much as the older legs. That said it is not as cheap as others I have seen. The medium density fiberboard (MDF) table top and shelf are nothing like the my old Craftsman workbench table tops. For one, they are not very thick, especially the shelf. They are also both made up of two pieces to allow them to make the packaging smaller. Also, the lower shelf when laid in place creates a slightly uneven gap where the two pieces meet. I am going to have to either replace it or install some kind of support to make it more solid. I am not even using the top as I am building my own 6 ft. tabletop to span the two stands. Then there is the hardware. I decided to replace all the hardware to put these together. The hardware included was not the worst quality I have ever seen, but it was not as good as anything you would buy at your local hardware store. Sears' choice of hardware is not what I would chosen to put this together in sturdy fashion. For building the frame they include only a bolt with very little purchase for your screwdriver on the head and a very small diameter nylon locknut. Neither the bolt or the nut is going to give you a good solid attachment by themselves. At a minimum I would buy and add a washer on both sides of these, although I am not quite sure if the bolt would be long enough to allow this as they are rather short. I decided to replace them all with 5/8" bolts, two washers, a lock washer, and a nut on each one. You will need 24 sets of these to do the same for each unit. These will tighten better and make the whole thing much more sturdy. I have read some others complain the feet are plastic. So were the feet on the older unit I have and it is not 17 years old and still looks as it did when new, feet included. They work fine for me. Overall this unit is not bad. Does it deserve to carry the Craftsman name on it? No. At least not the Craftsman name I grew up with. Craftsman standards have dropped over the years. I used to be certain that if I bough something with the craftsman name on it I was getting the best and something that would likely last my lifetime. I have a 29 year old Craftsman work bench with drawers and extended table top that still works like the day i bought it. It is packed with tools and the drawers are being strained severely, but it can stand up to the abuse. Sadly, I no longer have that kind of faith in any product sold today.
I bought this for my table top drill press, For the money it is what I expected. I think it would be better with a grinder or something lighter on it. As long as you don't try and move it with weight on it, should be ok.

I have been waiting for this to go on sale for months. I wanted to put my drill press on it. Well I am not disappointed. Got it put together without a problem and am surprised by how sturdy it is. Hold my drill press with easy.
