Default Keter Folding Work Table - $39.99 @ Costco (YMMV)

Picked one of these up. Looks pretty good for the DIY'r and the price is solid, I think. Now I can ditch my POS HF rolling one. Yay.

I think it also includes a couple if clamps, but I haven't opened it up yet.

Of course, Costco stock varies by location, so YMMV.

costco.com and costco refer to themselves as almost separate entities. You can return costco.com stuff to costco, however.

A quick search indicates it's not available at costco.com

That's a great price. I bought one for $99 from HD a little over a year ago. It does come with two clamps. The only down side to it is that the legs have no height adjustment.

jgump, can you confirm that it is not height adjustable? I thought I saw some pegs for the legs...

It is a bit low, so that would suck..

What is purpose of these work tables? Extend the end of a table saw for catching wood? That's about the only thing I can come up with for a table that small.

I saw this at Costco on Sunday.. Said the same thing as above.. what would I do with such a small table? Just didn't seem worth it to me. Allthough I guess I could have bought it and used it and if I didn't like it just return it, but still wondering about it..

LOL, I just sold my Black & Decker Workmate 200 on CL so that I could get this Keter table. Planning on picking it up within the next week.

Although cheezy, here's an informative video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pb6k1t1QjTw

for somebody like me, the very occasional DIY, it works great as a saw table / put the chop saw on, etc. The fact that it folds up so compactly is the biggest sell point. I have a small garage

It is similar in functionality to a Black and Decker Workmate. Portable work surface with clamping ability.

that cabinet looked interesting, didn't it? The issue with that cabinet is that it swings open from both sides, so it can't go against anything. Dealbreaker for me. Loved it, otherwise.
