Looks like the normal sale price is $100, this Hot Buy takes $20 off that. Googled for: Craftsman Portable Peg Clamping Workbench regular price​

I got the table and five accessories (two different clamps, 2 long rails, one short one) plus the $13 two bag combo deal here:

http://www.sears.com/craftsman-to...927851000P

The accessories were only available for local pickup. They were all half price Hot Buys. I found the accessories by searching Sears for Craftsman Portable Peg Clamping Workbench

The total with tax was ~$170 - $20 surprise points on $150 (coupons don't work on Hot Buys but surprise points do, if you have them).

I paid with a $150 gift card from eBay I got from a SlickDeal a few weeks ago for 15% off. My total out the door was ~$130, and $8 in points back on the purchase.

Aside from the cool clamps made for the system (sold seperately), what makes this better than a Black & Decker Workmate?

The cheapest Workmate is only ~$29, weighs less (17lbs), has a higher weight capacity (350lbs) and has a vice integrated so you can actually clamp things immediately without buying accessories. http://a.co/h8AZBLO

The Workmate 225 is more appealing and still cheaper: http://a.co/3RBketI

I actually generally dislike Black & Decker, but the Workmate has been around for ages and is a really handy tool. You can often find them at yard sales for <$10.

Wow. This sounds like just what I need for those times when I want to cut down a pipe and there's me to hold it steady.

Canceled the order ....the new ones aren't made as good as the old ones.....will go yard sailing for an old one.

Got this one :

The new version of the Workmate is garbage compared to the older one

Thanks OP, got one for $65 using $15 in surprise points that showed up on check out. Also got 2 clamps and 2 rails which I was able to use another $17 in surprise points by purchasing them separately. Only downside is having to go to the Sears store to pick up the clamps and rails, table ships free.

A 3/4" hole is "proprietary"????

I have a bunch of the accessories and they're working just fine in the 3/4" dog holes I drilled in my workbenches at home.

Yeah I just picked up an old workmate for $20. Wood top, very little plastic and still in good shape overall. Going to get a matching set for big jobs and still be less then a new plastic one.

Starting to pick up the craftsman peg clamps to go with the workmates and now I see one of these sets used so I might end up with one depending on price negotiation. The one push clamp I already got is very well built and fits perfectly.
