    Support Bench Tools on a Workmate

    I have had workmates for the last 30 yrs and use them for many things. If a power tool weighs less than 200 lbs and can be mounted on a 2x4 I have probably mounted it to my workmate- table saw, band saw, drill press etc. also use it for serving table or eating table by mounting a 3'x5' sheet of 3/4 plywood on a 2x4 and clamping it to the workmate. Once used a large piece of plywood for a kids thanksgiving table and was worried it might tip over so I screwed the workmate to the floor. Worked fine for about 8 kids. About the only negative thing I can say about the workmates is they are being built using thinner, cheaper material and price cutting cheaper features. Would be willing to pay more for a workmate if they made a model more like the 25 yr old ones.A
