Default Sam's Club work bench and cabinet

I have a Sam's and Costco membership, I hate sams club but I use the membership for gas and times that I need something quickly since sams is a mile from my house and Costco is 15. Anyway we had to go to Sam's today to pick something up. While there I ran down the tool isle. They have a great Butcher block work bench ($199) It looked very sturdy and thick BB. The matching rolling cabinet was $159 I think. This one also looked great with a SS pull bar and a Diamond plate door.

Thought I would give you guys the heads up.

Yeah, it's very sturdy looking. It looks to be basically the same thing as the Gladiator 5' workbench only half as much $$$$.

That's the one. I paid $500 for my 8 footer from Costco. I love it very sturdy and heavy.

I found the bench at their online site too. even cheaper! $171

Measures 38"H x 72"W x 25"D and features a sturdy 1.75" solid maple top for heavy workloads. Use a smarter work area with a solid steel frame construction and heavy-duty leveling feet for maximum durability.

Item: 635789

Features

Heavy-duty steel work bench
Leveling feet
Solid steel frame: 3" x 3"
Solid maple top: 1.75"
Dimensions 38"H x 72"W x 25"D

WOW!

I want these! I've seen solid wood tops alone go for $200+. If the framing is a good thickness, that's a steal.

It did not look cheap. It was the same texture and color as the Gladiator bench. I think this is a bargain at $171 you can't loose.

Default bench

Guys,

I bought the bench and cabinet. Solid as a rock. Be tough to buy the metal, paint, and wood and build it for the price. It's a real steal in my opinion.

I bought 2 of these a couple of weeks ago. They weigh 86 kilos (180 lbs.). They are nice benches. My dad took a look at one while I was putting it together and said that's too nice to work on.

I have the bench, 2 rolling cabinets and 2 wall cabinets. Its all good stuff. The rolling cabinets have wood tops and fit under the bench to save space. The wheels and the grab bar makes pulling them around easy.

The wall cabinets are model #20203. That's the manufacture model number. I can't find them on SAMS website or the manufacture site (www.sevilleclassics.com)

Just something for you guys to think about...
You DON'T have to spend 100's of dollars for a nice bench.
I built this roll around work center for $100 a couple of years ago...

I got the base cabinet for 80 bucks because it was dropped during shipment. Another $15 or so for casters,
20 minutes to fix the damage and I was in business.
I built drawers for the top three dummy fronts and have gobs of storage in a mobile bench. I use this thing all the time.
I built a similar unit in the garage for less then $40...

Pre-fab cabinets being clearance out for pennies on the dollar.
I paid more for the casters on this one then I did for the cabinets...

I picked up another one of the tables today. I now have 3. I tried to buy the roll cabs but the manager said they no longer stock them and wouldn't be in the future. No wall cabinets either. I don't know if this is a regional thing or not. He told me to take a look at SamsClub.com and to get them there. I couldn't find them on their site. I wished I could. I can't say enough good about the benches. They are Chinese for those who won't buy foreign however.

bench 153801 $199
roll cabinet 153808 $157
wall cabinet 153822 $69

I bought them in Jeffersontown, KY
502-267-9738

The wall cabinet number doesn't return an item on the SAMS website but the number is correct.

are those Sam's cabinets metal framed?? Is the diamond plate real? magnetic latches?

I like the piano hinges, handles and the look.

thanks!
