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.

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.
