Right-tool.com has the Black and Decker Workmate 225 on sale for $59.  While not as heavy-duty as the WM425, nor as nice as the old Alloy Casting versions (we have two), it supports 450 pounds, clamps wood, and functions as a shop-tool stand — it’s just one of those all-time handy tools.

    Bah. I got a cheap one at Harbor freight for $11. Sure, it probably won’t hold 450 lbs, but what do most of us really use it for? Holding a piece of lumber while we cut or drill it or put nails/screws in it, and thats about it. I can buy 4 more for the same price and just throw out one when it breaks.

    This isn”t much of a deal when the same item is listed for $59.97 at Lowe’s.

    I picked up two WM125 Workmates for twenty bucks a pice at Marshalls or some such place recently. That was a deal.

    I’ve noticed that the wood portions are now made out of Bamboo plywood. I don’t know if that represents a reduction in quality but it’s certainly a Greener material. It certainly seems solid enough.
