Opening (raising the “table”)???

You probably can, but a better idea is to attach the bench vice to a board and clamp the board between the jaws when you need it.

@Tom: Mine is from 1975 and is worn but in good shape. I've been touching up paint chips and making my own replacement parts from general hardware.

How do you close the legs on the workmate 225

Asked by Jimmy December 8, 2018

Answers

The bottom legs fold under to give you a 2nd lower working position, and the whole upper frame folds down for storage. Love my Workmate!

can you attach a bench vise to it?

It is not thick enough or sturdy enough for a bench vise. You really need a BIG bench in my opinion.

You can also go to Home Depot and buy one piece of 1x6 hardwood board and using one of you old boards as a pattern, make your own. I have just bought a new table and made a spare set of boards.

Can you secure a mitre box on it?

Yes, if it's smallest dimension is 16".

The vice screws that came with my model don’t seem long enough to allow you to close the vice completely.

Asked by Bob August 4, 2019

You need to reassemble it. There are three adjustment slots along the topside for placing the back board to adjust the closing distance.

Will HD assemble this for me?

You can ask, but there are YouTube videos on how to do it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WAoL14J_T_o All models assemble similarly.

Assembly instructions could be clearer. I.e. don't put the pin in until the handle is on. The pin does not come back out. And one of the welds failed right away. But I finished the project! Yay!

Excellent tool, light weight and very portable!
Customer review from blackanddecker.com logo
My Father in-law gave me this portable work mate for my birthday. This is perfect for mounting my miter saw too. The vice feature works great and seems very durable. I can also fold it down and hang it on the wall. Would definitely recommend this for any homeowner looking for portability and just a small work space to bring any job from the floor to your waist! Great gift!

This is a bit smaller than the one my dad had, but it also sits in the garage, collecting dust. At first I thought I would complete so many DIY projects, but realized that buying the tools wasn't the same as having the skills. The Workmate 225 is like many of my real life workmates, in that it is an inanimate object, and you have to grab it by the crank to make it move.

Great once I found a use for it!

There was one of these laying around my mothers house for years, I assume my dad left it there. For years I never saw a practical use for it so it sat in the barn and collected dust and I even contemplated getting rid of it. I should mention that I'm not a woodworker, I build commercial duty trucks by trade. I am very handy in all aspects for the most part and maintain my house and all of my rental units. I had finally decided that my circular saw wasn't enough and that I needed a Miter Saw when I found a great deal on a bright green one I picked it up and I finally found a use for this stand! initially I just drilled some holes in the wood and bolted my miter saw to this stand and figured that would be ok as the saw and stand wouldn't leave my garage often. About 2 weeks later I decided that was not sufficient and I could easily do better and that I didn't want to have to use a wrench to take my saw off. So I looked at the underside of the base on my miter saw, did a little measuring, went about drilling some new holes in the wood and grinding down the plastic tabs a little and about 30 minutes later presto I could securely clamp my miter saw to the stand simply using the hand cranks. Since then it has become indispensable, I use a simple little fold out adjustable height A-frame stand with a roller on top to support longer boards and it works great. I actually prefer this setup to a traditional miter saw stand due to it's compact size, I like how the stand collapses down and the feet fold in making it very compact, this feature came in very important most recently when my truck was out of commission for a few days while I was laying in a laminate floor in one of my rentals and had to have my miter saw there and didn't want to be cutting pieces on the ground! Due to this stands ability to collapse and fold up nice and small I was able to fit it into my car and still have plenty of room for my miter saw and little A-frame stand I use for longer pieces of wood! Since I will not leave my tools on site overnight I packed this stand and saw back and forth to and from my rental for a few days and it was great, there's no way I would have got a regular miter saw stand into my car so this stand save the day! I'm sure it has many other uses to other people but for me this has become a dedicated stand for my miter saw and it has worked out great for me! There is only one reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 and that being that the hand cranks are plastic and often times I feel as if I might break them when tightening them but so far they have held up. All in all if you have an application that this stand can work for I highly recommend it.

I got one of these about 25 years ago. Bought another one about 4-years also. And I got one for my son about 2-years ago. They're ALL still going strong and being used on a regular basis for just about everything I can. I Love It! I don't ever want my shop to be without one again. It doesnt do 'absolutely everything' but it is absolutely perfect for what it can do. Worth EVERY Penny.

Disappointed In Newer Model Workmate
I have been fortunate to have owned a BLACK & DECKER Workmate for many years. I received one as a gift over 30 years ago and it is still very functional. My disappointment came when I received the new one I recently purchased. I had hopes it would be of the same quality as the old one. The new model is smaller and not as heavily made as my old Workmate.The quality of steel is less and the wood top is smaller and made of a poorer quality of wood. While I am disappointed, I do love the functionality the Workmate Workbench product provides.

This was the perfect tool to hold my walking stick jig. The vice holds the jig securely in place while doing a project. It is sturdy when it is being used and the height is perfect. It breaks down easily for storage and is light weight. It was convenient shopping at Home Depot on line. The order was processed and delivered in a very timely manner. This product was very affordable.
