Long-time TM reader and commenter Stuey wrote in with this killer Dealmonger find: “Stanley’s Mobile Project Center is $69 after applying the currently-available 25% coupon and after a $10 Stanley rebate — you pay $79 at time of purchase, still a good deal.  No tax, free shipping — what more could you ask for?”  You’ll need to apply the code “PTADADDY” at checkout to get the 25%. 

“What to do if you already have one?” Stuey asks?  “Order and send me one as a wedding present!”  Congrats on the happy day, Stuey, from your friends at TM and all your fellow Toolmongers.

    Are these worth it? It always seemed like they were too small for any real projects and a decent table would work better.

  2. This might be enough to put a small chop saw on, but I can’t see doing any serious layout or work on this table. I think I’d be tempted to use it as a ladder.

    These are much bigger than the old style B&D Workmates, and similarly sized to B&D’s mid-range model.

    This is meant for those with very small workshops, apartment dwellers, and those who need to do work outdoors or away from their shop every now and then.

    I live in an apartment so a folding clamping table is one of two options. The other option is using my computer desk as a work table, but that’s a bad idea if I need to use power tools. I have vises and clamps, but no place to set them up permanently. A folding table offers decent clampage for light to medium duty work.

    These are worth it if you have space/storage issues or portability is important to you. It’s a portable work center that folds flat for storage and it doesn’t claim to be anything more. Would I use this as a substitute for even an entry-level work table if I had the room for one? No.

    Is it worth the money? I think so. My father’s 10-25 year old Workmate is built sturdily (made in Canada), and a good folding stand. But they don’t make them like they used to. The lower end ones feel cheap and wobbly, and amongst similarly priced B&D workstands, the Stanley MPC is a better buy. Amongst folding work stands, this is the cream of the crop and $70 is the best price I’ve ever seen on it.

    I have a B&D workmate and it is okay for certain things but limited, even with it’s wide legs. I’m trying to imagine using a handsaw on this while it wobbles because it looks too tall and narrow to be very stable. I have not used one of these but there is such a thing as trying to be too many things and in the end not doing anything well. I think this may be a good example.
