Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stuk4x4 Great stand
I have four of these stands (two different models) and they have more than paid for themselves. I use them for wood, metal and a paint stand as well. I have owned them for over 5 years.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dz63 Great Product but Levers Break Easily
I use the Rigid Flip Top on the out feed of my table saw. It works great for this purpose. On both my Flip Tops, the die cast height adjustment locking levers broke with very little pressure. It appears to be a weakness in design on the older units. I ordered replacement levers (Ridgid part no. 000999130700) and the new levers have a double web design and appear to be substantially stronger. Google the above part number of price - very reasonable. It appears that Ridgid discovered and fixed the problem. Unfortunately, the new replacement levers are not directly interchangeable with the older Flip Top locking mechanisms. The new lever has a female thread. The old levers had a bolt holding the lever on. I had to pin a short length of 3/8-18 NC threaded rod into the lever to make it work. Not too difficult - about 15 minutes work. With the new heavy duty lever, I would recommend this product. FYI. The old levers were round in cross section. The new ones are rectangular with two stiffening webs. See attached photos.

Excellent product. Like it much better than the roller versions available. Really like wide stance which provides great stability. Height adjustment is quick, easy and infinite.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jimbob Great outfeed support!
This is a great find. The stand itself has the usual drawback- the legs tend to collapse together when you move it and this changes the overall height. You just have to be careful when moving it. The platform, however, is excellently designed. You can lock it flat if you like, but normally it sits at an angle to your saw so it catches the material as you feed it out, then it flattens to the correct height as the material moves over it. And, the price is cheaper than other, inferior outfeed supports. Right after I used it for the first time, I went back and bought a second one. Great product!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ArtSig Good value and it works
Simple, it works and does not mark your boards or redirect your board as you are cutting as a single flat roller will try to do. Safer than a flat roller. This is my second flit top work support from Home Depot

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CaptCrusoe Very handy tool with one drawback
This is my second flip-top workbench and it is great if you normally work alone. This tool catches boards and keeps them level when feeding out from a table saw. I have used it nearly every day during my remodel project or anytime I am using my table saw and compound miter box saw. The adjustable flip-top bench has one drawback - the height adjustment handle is very flimsy and breaks easily. I now use a pair of vice grips to raise and lower the flip-top. Hey ‘RIDGID’ - how about fixing this problem? The handle seems to be made of cheap (what I would call) pot-metal and snaps off in a heartbeat. Other than that - it truly is a handy tool.

Works well, but still tips over if the legs are stomped into the floor.
