Answer: 
The work surface can lock in 45 degrees, parallel with the floor, and -45 degrees. It can move to -90 degrees and 90 degrees relative to the floor, but it cannot lock in those positions.

Answer: 
As an update, I did purchase the unit. I have not had any issue with the handle, but of course I know to be careful with it. This product works as it should and I am glad to have it in my home workshop. I don't think I stroll through the tool department at my local HD without considering the purchase of a second one.
Thanks to everyone for your responses to my question.

Answer: 
I don't know if the handle has changed since the time you entered this question. However, I have not had that problem although I can see why some might have a problem. The handle that came on my units are plastic and could be broken if one were to over-tighten the clamp. My stands only take a moderate amount of pressure to securely hold the pad in place.

I just purchased my second flip-top bench and it has the same cheap 'pot-metal' handle that broke off on my first flip-top. The manufacture has not fixed this problem to date so have a pair of vice-grips handy.

Answer: 
No, Ridgid does not make anything designed to weigh down the stand. The manual states that you can hang weights on the stand to improve stability when moving heavy materials. The picture in the manual shows two bricks hanging from ropes. There are little hooks stamped out from the pivot that you can hang things on.

I have never needed to use anything additional as the base spreads out pretty wide and is very stable even moving full plywood sheets across it. Read Less

Don't know if they make a weight system for this. But I have run everything up to and including 3/4"x8' plywood over it and never used weighs and has never fallen over. I use Surface Ice Shuffleboard wax on it to help keep it slick. Guess you could hang like power lifter weights off of it, but I have never needed to.

Answer: 
The table is designed to allow wood to pass or slide over the plastic top by adjusting the height and the self adjusting angle of the top, as it moves material from your table saw or other device. I know of no weight/hook system for the table. You maybe looking at the lever for adjusting the table height which is midway up in the photo. This is my second type of these and it is by far the best.

Answer: 
I wouldn't use this as a platform for bench tools. The platform isn't big enough and there is a little play in it even with the locking pin.
It is designed as an outfeed support, basically a substitute for a roller stand.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 99 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product I own 2 and they are well made and very helpful. Easy to assemble and transport. Highly recommended. April 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Portable Work support A good product for the price and comes with a lifetime guarantee! September 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great due to adjustable height I am 6'3" and my wife is closer to 5'. It is great we can both use the same saw horse or table top support just by adjusting the height August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love it! Love how it makes the jobs so much easier. Would recommend it to anybody. August 23, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Better than most helpers! Extremely simple to set up and use. The slide surface works so much better than the roller style because the surface area is so much larger and material just glides across it! July 26, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by My second flip top work support The new support has undergone some changes. Some good others, others they could have left alone. The top is wider and has less friction which helps considerably. The leg pivot point is not as positive as the earlier model. This lends itself to creating a setup problem in that you need to be absolutely positive that the legs are splayed all the way out and stay that way as you adjust the height otherwise there is the potential of the support being pulled over as heavy material is pushed over the top. At the least it could create poor tracking when pushing a 4x8 sheet of expensive plywood through a tablesaw. Between the two supports I would give both a rating of 9 out of 10. If they would have just added the new larger top to the older version base it would have rated a 10. In any case, the deficiency I have pointed out, in no way should detour you from purchasing one of these. For the money, quality and portability, I don't believe you can beat it. July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Helpful Tool that works. I like the Flip Top Portable work support. It has been a good "third hand" when i am working alone on the table saw or drill press. I have used the big long roller. These pull your work to one side or the other if they are not EXACTLY set up at 90 degrees to the work flow. The flip top does not pull or push the work off line. You may need to hang a gallon jug of water or sand to make it more stable, but that is no issue. I have purchased a second one for my self and two for a son for his workshop. I like the tool. Nothing is perfect but i would and have 'purchased again.' May 31, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by One of a kind. I am a professional contractor and I own six of these. I find them to be almost indispensable when using a miter saw or a table saw. These are the only item on the market like this except for the roller or roller bearing material supports, and for the most part I find that they work better than these other material supports.
