What does this do, under warranty
 
1 Attachment(s)
What is this thing called, it is heavy and seems to me to be junk. Can I trade it in for a new one?

Looks like a spin off of the Black and Decker work mate,
To bad they cheapened them up so much.
I have an old one that's about 30 years old and still works great.

I may just take a trip down to sears and see if I can not get another one.

You'd have better luck with The Antique Road Show.

I think the warranty on that thing expired when they put it in the box at the factory. Looks salvagable however. A little paint and some groovy decals would go along way.

It is called a workbench. No you could not trade it for a new one, just needs to be fixed, which would not be that hard to do.

It is too heavy for me. I could possibly fall in love with it when someone showed me all that it can do. It is now up for grabs.

That thing used to be a good heavy-duty work bench until you covered it with some of that cheapa$$ Behr Paint. Crap ate holes clear through it!

Demand a refund!

I have the Black and Decker Workmate 400 that my wife gave me many years ago. It is still in good shape except for 1 broken plastic leg catch that I have to replace someday. It's a pretty handy item to have.

Kmart Craftsmen is not what Sears Craftsmen used to be!
Only Craftsmen hand tools are life time warranty.

Is craftsman tools really ALL Kmart now. Sad.
