Ten Modifications to the Black & Decker WorkMate Bench
On the DIY Tinkerer, he shows off ten modifications he’s done to his Black & Decker WorkMate bench.
The WorkMate is a portable bench used by many makers, especially those who have small workspaces, so it’s great to see how you can mod the bench for maximum use.
In these two videos, he shows things like bringing power directly to the bench, an add-on woodworkers vise, a paper dispenser for covering the surface, a stowable soft top for clean making, and more.
