The forbidden scrolls tell us that he who has an original Black and Decker work bench can build unlimited work benches.

I have one of these. Does the job adequately, but not as robust as a B&D
Thanks OP Handy man for most DIY ers better than the Mrs helping, unless of course you are married to a DIY Angel in which case buy her one of these for Xmas.

How much is this usually?
Cheap but pretty flimsy Perhaps value for money but only for very occasional use
I bought one last year when they were on offer. It is now in the skip. The metal is not very strong and easily bends out of place when trying to fold away. It did the job (partially) for the time I had it though
got one last time and its better than expected; ok for light duty tasks only.

bargain at £10
so useful

Don't go much on their tutorials! Not sure why they have some weird yank cooking a stir fry on there.
Got this 5 weeks ago from Maplins, same price then and just added a 49 p cable to get free home delivery so not sure why this is suddenly a hot deal ?
Get the Aldi one
It's actually not bad, I got one today, and for a tenner it is a light usage one but held my weight when I sat on it haha
Why do people say Maplins when it's just Maplin? Or Tescos, etc.? Genuinely interested in the psychology behind this, as it's not like it happens with everything.

It's pretty simple really, people become familiar with a store think of it as they do a friend's place and the name of the store as being the person who owns it rather than a store name. So basically they are going to maplin's place, aldi's place etc.

Not easy to assemble, mostly because the instructions are a bit useless. Make sure you get the feet bent outwards - at least that's how I assume it is supposed to be. But for the price I have no regrets.

Get yourself a workbench, it'll be easier.

My neighbour puts an s on the end of every shop name - including the ones that already have an s at the end! --- so Sainsbury's becomes Sainsburys's --- which is even more annoying

Did you not see the same product and the same price a year or so ago?
Are any of these you can buy these days anywhere as near as good as the old ones?
