Review

I’ve used a Black & Decker Workmate for years, and found it to be a handy helper in the shop and on a job site. Keter's Folding Work Table expands on that versatility.
It features a thick 23×36" plastic worktop and shelf, connected to four sturdy, tubular aluminum legs. It measures 36" to the top of the worksurface, and folds easily into a lightweight suitcase shape. Clamping separates this from other workstations. Two slotted tracks built into the top accept proprietary one-handed bar clamps. (Two are included with the table—you can buy more.) I clamped everything from hardwood to plywood to plastic to steel pipe, and the clamps held each material securely as I routed, sawed, hammered, planed, and sanded. Despite the mostly plastic construction, the unit proved surprisingly steady and solid. I clamped my benchtop tablesaw to the top for work on a job site, and it held securely without wobbling. (The Workstation supports up to 400 lbs.) You can use the clamps to grip workpieces horizontally or vertically with equal control. There’s also open slots for clamping pieces to the middle of the table. —Tested by Steve Feeney
