"The workbench came with one of the legs welded so that it was not possible to assemble it (see the photo).
Welded on crooked, and powder-coated that way (as you can see in the photo), it will not fold in but hits the back support.
This kind of poor construction and lack of quality control is really remarkable.
Also note that this in NOT made by TITAN but is presumably a knockoff made by another company. I wish that this fact was disclosed in the product description as I'd have passed on it and bought the original.
This ended up being a total waste of time (waited 12 days for it) and a very frustrating experience."

Great Deal And Takes Up Little Space Folded!

"Solid bench that folds up nicely! Good size for most any project. Even come with the clips to hold items on the pegboard! Nicely finished and it should last quite a while. Would have been rated a 5 but the instructions are horrible, just diagrams with no explanation of assembly. Had 2 holes that did not line up for screws but was no trouble enlarging then to fit. Everything else fit well."

Pleasantly Surprised

"I had no more room in my motorcycle room but I rebuild engines in there and set up a temporary bench on horses. I bought this because it folds down and I was worried it would not be strong enough to handle an engine stand and and engine. The box was flimsy and the parts were scattered in the box but all there. This is very strong and folds down out of the way when not in use. I assembled this in 20 minutes and just ordered another one. For the price this is an amazing useful bench that serves my purpose exactly.The steel pegboard is a real bonus to hang the special tools needed for each rebuild and have them handy. The gas strut to hold up the table while you fold the legs is a real bonus too. This will not replace a commercial steel top work bench but it is exactly what I needed. If you have a shop that you wheel around bikes and would like to have a temporary flip up steel work top with a pegboard, this is the tool."
