Unfortunately Home Depot sells a workbench but not the clamps that go with and are advertised on the product wrapping. You can use ERWIN 2" clamps that are available at a big box competitor for less than $6 apiece. Would be something for HD to consider carrying, especially at the point of sale.
2 and a half inch clamps are just a bit too long. If you force them in the slot, they will ruin it..

Answer: 
The Home Depot by my house had some of these workbenches in stock so I went to go buy one, but they didn't have a single bar clamp in the store that was small enough to fit in the table, so I ended up not buying it. I don't suggest ordering online - easier to go to the store and try some clamps to see if they fit.

I found the applicable screw attachments slots lacking. Compared to another brands router plate there are few holes and they supported many models.
My suggestion is to remove the router plate and take it to the store with you. The packaging is bear so you can check over the exposed bench face.
I am however very happy with the portable bench feature. The router part is a bonus as stated. The same multi function capabilities that all tools will provide. Read Less

I could not get my Bosch 1617 to lign up perfect.
When I did get it somewhat right, there was no hole for the above the table micro adjustment.
The router plate is not solid, it is webbed underneath. Maybe this is okay to some, but I was able to easily flex the plate.
Second, it doesn't use the factory 4 holes, but the three inner holes. Not a big deal, however now I would have to drill a hole in the plate in order to use the fine adjustment feature above the table for my Bosch 1617 that are available when in a router table.
Next, the 4 bolts that hold the router table screw into nuts that are pressed in and are very fussy to align and even popped up. Also, the router plate is not a real standard size, so I can't really swap it out for something better. Not only that, but there would be no way to level out a plate if you made a plate.
I really liked the idea of a collapsible workbench, but I would have to pull the router plate when I put it away since it would interfere with where the legs and accessory pack store. That would be a pain especially with the router plate screws being fussy.
I really wanted to like this since it folded up compact, but I can't keep it knowing what I do.
I'm almost tempted to keep it for a stand for my miter saw, but again I will most likely return it.

As shown on the picture of the Portable Jobsite Workbench; it is totality self contained and store-able except for the bar clamps and rip fence which are accessories and not supplied. The legs are twist locked into the holes in the bottom of the frame when in use. The legs and little box you referred to are securely stored within the under side of the table top. An added advantage, all four legs have swivel caps on the bottom of the legs to accommodate use on uneven surfaces.
Word of advice, if the workbench is used with any power tools installed (Router & etc.) the power tool(s) must be removed before attempting to store the legs and little box back into their respective places under the table top.
The temptation to quickly pack and get off the job site is easily understood, however not properly storing the loose parts might result in loss or damage to these parts; and the last time I checked, they were not available as replacement parts. That is a risk you should avoid.
Hint; I marked one end of each leg with a marker to ensure they went back in the correct direction when storing in the table top. Read Less

Looking at my own table, I would tell you the best case scenario would be to completely remove the black plastic insert on the table top and custom fabricate an insert that would fit whatever circular saw you are trying to use on this table. However I would question the safety of trying such a task, because of the stability of the legs and the size of the tables work surface. Trying to control the board being cut with a stationary saw blade would certainly be an issue on this table with the board thickness and diameter of the original board. The smaller the board (such as base board molding) the better.
I can visualize the table flipping over backward when trying to feed a large sheet into the saw blade with this kind of modification. Please proceed with caution, at best it is a bad idea.
My personal opinion, it would be safer to invest in a quality table saw and/or a Radial Arm Saw. Stick to using a circular saw with a quality Blade and Saw Guide for large sheets of wood and keep all your body parts.
I have thought of trying this same new insert concept on my Jobsite workbench for using with a saber saw, but that is one of those projects that is a low priority and when I get around to it. Read Less

The on-table clamp slots are a nice feature, although I have yet to use them because I don't have bar clamps that are narrow enough. Clamping on the side can be slightly problematic due to a lack of places for jaws to sit on the underside. I wanted to use this as a router table, and unfortunately the plate would not fit my router (Makita 3612BR). Because the insert is ribbed plastic, you can't just add holes to it to mount your router. Additionally, the insert plate is a non-standard thickness (0.388in/9.9mm), so you can't easily make an insert out of 3/8" acrylic that will be flush with the top. I've ended up having to put a 1mm shim under a sheet of 3/8" acrylic to make my custom insert plate flush. Also, the table is NOT dead-nuts flat, so precise router work will not be possible, although I would say it's flat enough. Overall, it is a pretty good work table and the price is right. I also know of no other table that folds up this conveniently that has this strong functionality. The difficulties of using it with a router made me ding it 2 stars though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Portable, Stable, and Reliable After two weeks of usage, this has easily become my goto jobsite workbench. I even pulled it out of the trunk at home. Assembly and disassembly are quick and easy. The workbench is sturdy - legs sit at an angle for excellent stability, even on a slant. I put a full 5-ply sheet of plywood on it, setup my SkilSaw, and went to work. It's not too big and not to small. Good height for me. I haven't used the router feature, but I plan to give it a try. I can't speak on the longterm durability yet, but it will get a real test through the fall and winter months.

You can also clamp something to the edge of the table without crushing the edges because of the way they are molded. It's sturdy and holds my miter saw with room enough on the side to lay my tap measure, square, clip board etc. I bought the other Husky table, but it was too small and could hold my saw but there wasn't room for anything else. This table was worth the price. I wish they had made both tables the same height so they could be used side by side. It's well thought out. would have loved to have a cord wrap or built in hooks to hang things. Have been very happy with it.

I wanted a portable workbench to use on projects in the house as well as outdoors. I have just completed putting wire closet systems in four closets. The workbench provided high mobility, amazingly fast assembly (I mean a minute or two) and was sturdy enough to allow clamping and cutting the wire shelving, clothes rods, and standards. I showed it to all 3 of my daughters and their husbands at our Christmas. The guys are all DIY'ers and the girls are into art, jewelry making, painting, fabric printing, etc. They were all impressed. Anyplace you need a smaller, highly mobile, easy to use work surface, this is it.

If your router is not compatible and is the primary reason for buying this table, I would say pass this by.

After un-bagging the parts, assembly takes less than 60 seconds and disassembly less than 60 seconds. The legs stow in the underside of the table top and are secured with plastic clips. The leg bottoms have a plastic ball joint self leveling foot. The aluminum legs use a friction type screw system. Inserting the leg into the leg socket of the table requires less than a full turn secure the leg snugly. The table is very light, yet quite sturdy. I'm confident this table would hold my body weight. Also included is a plastic toolbox to be used to contain the table parts, e.g., two hex bolt, two star knobs, four 2x4" holding brackets, and four plastic separators to be used in the plastic toolbox. The metal brackets are made of thin metal and don't appear to be adequate for use. However, I have not tried these brackets. The hex nuts with with star knobs is a nice addition, and therefore would negate the need to purchase two 4” x 2” Bessey clamps. However, I purchased the Bessey clamps ($4.97 ea.), to clamp down my existing melamine router fence. Additionally, the hex bolts were a little wider than the extruded aluminum and would require the aluminum be filed down slightly to allow the hex nuts to move freely the length of the aluminum slot. I purchased this workbench after reading all of the available reviews, and was well aware that the router plate is NOT a universal fit for all routers. Other reviewers pointed out the omission of a list of compatible routers, which I did not find either. Another reviewer reported contacting the manufacturer and getting a list of compatible routers, but was not sure it was a complete list. One reviewer with a B&D router was capable of using the provided router plate. I have a very old Black and Decker fixed base router. I discovered that my router is not compatible. I rolled the dice... snake eyes. So, I did as a another reviewer did, and I made my own router plate. As that reviewer pointed out, the plate thickness is unusual. One reviewer said he had success with 3/8" plywood. Unfortunately, I could not find any 3/8" plywood locally, plus I measured the thickness at 7/16". I cut some 1/2" birch plywood using the Husky router plate as my template. Then I surface routed one side to reduce the width to 7/16", and sanded smoothly. I drilled a hole in the center to accommodate my largest router bit, and using the detachable router face plate, I drilled three countersunk holes to mount the router to, minus the face plate. Less than perfect, my router table plate was about 1/16" shy of level with the table recess frame and the rest of the table surface. Additionally, as another reviewer observed, there appears to be a slight sag in the middle. I concur. I used 2-sided tape with a 1/16” foam center as a shim at each of the four corners before tightening down the plate. However, I was still shy. I also noted a considerable gap existed between the two extruded aluminum slots and the router hole in the plate. The weight of the router affects the accuracy of level, thus a sag. My primary purpose for buying this table was to replace my crude melamine router table made from an old book shelf and a B&D workmate. I use this table primarily for cutting holes in my cigar box amplifier/speaker baffles. Works well for that purpose, but not much else. However, this makeshift table actually is more accurate than the Husky at this point. If the router table capabilities are not a selling point for you or you have a router compatible with the router plate, then this table just might be for you. If you are looking to use it for mitre saw stand, I would spend the extra cash and get one of the low-end mobile mitre saws sold at Home Depot. There are two with good reviews and less than $100. If my router was compatible, I would have kept this table in a heartbeat. It is light and could be used in the house, etc., for many other things. Since, I could not circumvent the issue of incompatibility with my fabricated router plate, I returned the table to Home Depot today. There was no line in the returns area and with my receipt, I received a full refund and my cash back in less than 5 minutes. I’m probably going to make my own mobile router table. Should be a nice pocket hole jig project.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great concept table made by KETER but needs work (my table top was not flat) I purchased this table and found that a few in the store had broken clips that hold the legs in. So I picked one that was still in tact. After using for one day I found that my table top was not flat but had a large bow with the center being the highest point. That caused issues sanding pieces of trim, clamping thing across the table, and such. I dealt with this until the job was finished. I could not have used this to router anything as the table wasn't flat. I returned this table. However, i will be buying another if I can find one with a flat top. Check yours with a level in the store. I am not sure if this was a rarity or if most are not flat. Good luck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Satisfied I compared this baby to Jawhorse & Keter. This was cheapest. I didn't consider the Workmate, as it isn't worth mentioning. I needed a portable workbench that could be put on the wall when not in use & use as a router & table saw table as well as a clamping/work surface. This one does them all and excels as a router table. It uses any BESSEY TYPE CLAMP, which is what I use most. I think I will end up with all three but this Huskey is the best bang for the buck. The only negative is that this one doesn't have a catchy name like Jawhorse or Workmate. If you like, you can name it after me-the ROADY table. Roady Fanelli

Having a difficult time acquiring the correct clamps as all the clamps I have will not fit in the grooves on the table top. To get 5 stars, should have sold the table with 2 clamps. Well worth the $59 I paid at Home Depot when it was marked down by $10.
