Macallister as a brand tend to get a lot of stick... But that price seems decent.

Not the best brand, agreed. Thought it was good value at this price though.

No stock near me, but seems orderable to store. Will punt for £35

Had one for over a year paid £45 and it was well worth it and would buy another one but I don't think I will need one for years to come. Thanks for posting.

​for the macallister on or their own brand? Even if it's their own brand you can't go wrong for a tenner. Will have to have a look later on. Can never have to many workbenches

Shame its only got one single support be perfect otherwise. Its not made of wood like the cheap ones if its not sturdy its no good.

Mine is quite sturdy and the ones for £10 in Aldi are the crap wood ones but ok for £10

It won't be MacAllister, as that's B&Q's own brand, it'll be Aldi brands like Workzone or similar.

I bought one of this about 2 months ago. It has been about that price on clearance for quite a while. I wouldn't say I was super pleased with it but I'm not going to vote this cold, in fact I will tick it as hot because what I'm about to say regards the product itself rather than the deal being obtained for those who want to buy it regardless.

Firstly, I'm going to say that it definitely isn't worth £80. It should never have been at that price as you would expect to get a better workbench for that price. But at £35 is it worth it? I dunno for sure but it depends what you need it for. I got it to do general diy stuff and I've already used it to cut laminate flooring with my jigsaw. It did the job. It wasn't rock solid and sturdy but I don't think that I would have received a much better service or a lot more ease with one that was.

What I don't like is that it feels quite wonky. Some things are not properly aligned. Again for £35, that's perhaps excusable but for £80 I would have felt robbed. I think the problem was that I expected a solid piece like the one you see in the picture worth £80 .. it's metal after all but when I put it together, it didn't feel great.. it felt more £20'ish (pre-brexit) or £30'ish (now).

Would I have bought it if I had experience using it? It depends if there's an alternative one which feels MUCH more solid while it also has some of its key features, such as foldable, adjustable height and clamps etc (I would even be prepared to pay a little higher say up to £60). I there's no such alternative on the market, then I would say its a decent buy .. because the solidness only carries you that far for a non-serious (or occasional diy) user

Good luck with whatever you decide. Perhaps if I've managed to lower your expectation a little, then when YOU use it .. it might feel a lot better.

nobody will pay 80quid for that. You can get it for that price at Amazon for better brand like Black & Decker 2 weeks ago
