Rated 5 out of 5 by Debra Trott Father's Day present
Bought this as a Father's Day present as he'd been going on about one for ages, he was ecstatic about it, a few fiddly bits putting it together but overall sturdy, & it's already done a few jobs, folds away nicely, so easy to store. Excellent!

If, like me, you consider DIY as interesting, a pleasure, and useful, then this work-mate is a real work mate. It saves too much bending and is useful in so many of the D I Y tasks one has to do. I love it and at such a price is a real bargain.

Excellent service from staff as usual but diabolical product.
Does not fold to a convenient size , legs sticking out.
Top surface is not level.
I tried several ways to correct these defects and got so fed up returned to shop with it assembled to prove this.
Refunded without problem by excellent staff.
I am not new to self assembly and have even built a DIY conservatory.
This is a product which should be removed from Homebase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Flying Scotsman Instructions??
Product appears reasonable once constructed but the instructions are appalling. Only diagrams with no written instructions and part 'V' was not as photographed and is a spanner to tighten screw heads in the boarding. There is nothing to indicate this and the diagram is confusing. Unless you are imaginative and have a DIy bent then do not buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Margot's mum Does what's expected
I bought this to help when we were making wooden planters for our garden. Holds wood firmly in position for sawing. The workmate is stable, easy to use and just as needed to help with DIY tasks.
Putting the workbench together took a little longer than expected but not a major problem.

I gave this as a gift to my son, so I don't have personal experience of the item. However, my son is pleased with it and finds that it is a very good product for his D.I.Y. needs.

A great product for the price - can use with a mitre to cut at angles. Perhaps a little wobbly, but your an instant work bench when needed, it does the job.

The B&D 301 is excellent for use in restricted spaces such as my small shed and folds away to store against the wall when not in use. I have owned the larger B&D Workmate WM525 with fold-out legs since 1974, and the 301 is an ideal addition. Assembly is self explanatory and can be achieved in about half an hour. The quality of the components is excellent, and the whole thing makes up into a sturdy multi-functional piece of kit with a multitude of uses I now wish I had bought one ages ago!
