I have been waiting for the Gladiator six foot Maple top to go on sale close to the black Friday price of $250. I happened across this stainless steel top on sale for about the same price. I think the stainless will hold up better for automotive style repairs than the wood top. Bench is stable and strong. Top quality is the weakest link on this table. Corners in picture show a nice welded bead finishing the edge. But you get a stamped piece of metal that feels loose in corners. Make sure not to over tighten the lag bolts that hold the top to the legs or they will strip out. Nice addition to garage. If you get it on sale it worth the money.
Workbench is very sturdy and looks nice. Countertop would also look good if corners were finished. The picture shows nice smooth corners,but I have ordered two and returned both because the corners aren't finished. There is a gap where the SS meets on the edges. This leaves two jagged edges sticking out. When I talk to someone at Craftsman or Sears they just say order another one it should be right. Someone should check the item in the warehouses. I don't think anyone wants a countertop with jagged corners.
sturdy and very easy to put together.
Bought this today!
Of course not only is it damaged on the front side but the entire top isn’t glues down and all rippled.
I hate sears
This product is exactly what I hoped it would be. It was easy to put together and it is a great addition to my garage. Very sturdy and I look forward to adding a base cabinet in the near future.
