Craftsman stool is a must-have for everyone with a work bench

I bought this Craftsman hydrolic stool for my workbench and I love it.  It was easy to assemble, looks good and has a very solid base.  Oh and confortable.  The hydrolic seat moves up or down for the perfect level for your needs.  The back rest is confortable as well when you need to sit back and think a minute.  For the price I dont think you can find anything better.  If you have an uneven floor it has ajusters on the butom to make it level.  It also comes in different colors but black was the one I needed.

Looks are not everything

This chair always looked good in the store and the ads so I got one last Christmas. Its really not a very well built stool but for the price I expected that. The problem is the stool is not comfortable. The seat cushion sort of goes flat when you set on it like its full of air. The tiny little back rest offered no support but did help keep you from falling off the back when you set. Not rolling, not mobile became a problem quckly. I seldom set in mine and sold it a couple of months ago. It still looked good, never hardly set on it. But as we know, looks are only skin deep.

Reviewers may have received a benefit, like a sweepstakes entry or rewards program points, in exchange for writing a review.
Those benefits were not conditioned on the positive or negative content of the review.

A bit flimsier than I expected

I got it on sale, about half off list, so I'm not returning it. But it still doesn't really feel like it is worth the money. The seat itself seems? smallish. And the backrest also feels small, and doesn't seem very strong.

Overall, I'd say it is not worthy of the Craftsman name, and I'd definitely recommend trying it out before you buy it (unlike me).

I purchased this chair for my husband. it was easy to assemble and works great. He uses it with his Craftsman work bench. We love Craftsman products and would recommend the chair and other items to our friends and family.

Sturdy and smooth

Easy assembly with tools provided took about 10 minutes from opening the box to completion. Back rest adjusts, seat swivels smoothly. Up and down seat height is smooth. Stool is sturdy and level. Seat cushion is better than nothing.

Sturdy and Comfortable

Very sturdy and surprisingly comfortable. It is very tall so check the specs and make sure it matches ypur workbench. In my case it works great but I have it set all the way down.

Comfortable adjustable stool

I saw this item in the store and really liked the fact that I could remove the back support and use it like a stool which works better for me. The base is very stable - some may prefer a rolling version which sears also sells. The cushion is not very thick, so it's ok for short periods of work, but would prefer more padding/cushion. the mechanism to raise and lower the seat works well.

Great product!

Purchased this product to go with the Craftsman garage storage shelves. Stool has a great look to it and completes the set. Great height also. Would recommend this product.

Craftsman Stool

I should have bought this stool along time ago as now that I have it I use it all the time. It is stable, nicely made and comfortable. It makes working on my projects a lot easier. It is not a tool, but I feel a great addition to my work area in the garage.

I own two

I own two of these, & paid $60.00 or less for each. Definitely would not pay the $99 they want not on sale, but well worth the sale price I paid. Great for around my shop & have not had any issues with them!

It is a nice looking and comfortable little stool, it serves great. I got a good deal on it and am happy with it. I wish I could have gotten two more for my shop.

Out of the box easy and reliable.

I ordered online during a 50% off sale...that was a damned good start! I picked it up from my local store with no problem at all. Assembly was smooth with easy to follow instructions. At five foot four, I can't touch the ground when I'm seated, however the lower bracket/footrest is perfect for me. The adjustable seat height and backrest are a nice touch. I'd recommend the manufacturer add a couple more inches of padding to the seat. If you spend as much time in your garage as I do, the extra cushioning would come in handy (or I could lose a few pounds).

poor quality

Got this stool for Christmas(2012) and air cylinder has already gone bad. Used very little. Looked up replacement cost to replace and was $57.00 plus $13 to ship it.

MY Rating) I had to give these a three out of five.. one for the thin padding.. two for the weight rating.. these were rated to handle 300lbs.. No.. more like 250lbs, I weigh 256lbs & the hydraulic shaft wants to fail.. I can physically feel it.. given enough time, I'm assuring you they will fail ! I luv the looks of them, once you get them out of the box, they seem well packaged & clean.. it took me a bought a half hr to ass.. one, after that it was a cake walk, building the other three.. Conn.

..Continued, was done in 45min., you'll want to use the tools that come w/them.. (I like kits w/the required tools for ass..) its easier IMO, I have better tools that probably speed up the process but I deiced to take my time & use the free tools LOL. If you got these for a present.. the square pipe goes on the out side (yep.. Man.. instructions are horrible), the legs bolt from the inside, "haha.. no your not missing any peaces".. the back rest slides in at the seat base LOL.. so there you go.

COMPLAINT) Pre-Black friday (doorbuster) ; Found out the black ones will be on sale at 39.99 Thanksgiving night (local store has 50sh n stock), this pre-B.-Friday D.B. sale exclusive is to members only for 6hrs (only on selected items), spent the hole day confirming I could get them @ sale price from many reps., only to find out.. none of the reps would allow me have any at the sale price "What happened to CUSTOMER CARE !", forcing me to wait... 20+ yrs as a loyal customer "I'm very Angry" !

YEP.. Sale has ended... haha....... I was on-line w/ several reps., pryer to the sale & when the sale started @ 5PM !, I was told by several reps before the sale started that I could get the stools.. then when the sale started.. all I would have to do is use my SYWR I.D. & I would see my discount at the shopping cart. Nope.. several reps after that told me the same thing you stated.. its no longer available.. "WTH" ... "BIG FAIL" !!

I have been trying to order Craftsman high-top work table item #00952590000 model #52590 for 2 years from my local store. they always had problem trying to order. PLEASE tell me when it may be available. the new table and stool set is just not the quality as the one I want. we love the high back adjustable stools. our garage is mostly all Craftsman products and my kitchen is kenmore equipped. hoping not to be disappointed, heather purcell

Update: Sorry Heather.. I did some checking around.. the table you were looking at is much better than the one they have in the kit/set I was talking a bought earlier.. the set does-not have the pads around/on the feet or the coasters plus it looks like the set (table) looks a bit thinner too.
What a shame.. did you see the other bar stool tables (?).. their not Craftsman but most have pictures of other stuff on them.. they are triple the price almost.
Sears does have the set tho if all else f..
