WM225 [amazon.com] is $50. WM425 [amazon.com] is $70. Use Discover for an additional 5% savings (Cash Back bonus category).

If it's in your budget, the WM425 adds a bunch of useful features like one-handed vice adjustment, vertical clamping, and a larger worksurface.

I have a WM225. I ordered this WM125 to scavenge the bench dogs (pegs) and the worksurface board assemblies to widen my 225's worksurface. I'll scavenge the clamping bits and feet pads for spare parts, then disassemble the frame and toss it in my scrap bin for use in some future project. All in, I'm satisfied with the value in parts for $20.
I had one of these years ago from a similar deal and never liked it. It feels extremely flimsy, and the vice adjustment requires a ton of fiddling as each knob must be turned separately to the exact same length. It didn't fold up easily and required a lot of bashing, unscrewing, bashing, etc. It might be fine if you use this as an extra table in a workshop or garage but for my use of pulling out for occasional hobbyist stuff it was maddening and I gave it to a thrift shop (where you'll find these all the time for cheap too).
Agreed - I have both the WM125 and the WM225 - the 225 is MUCH sturdier and easier to use. Highly recommended if you can swing the price.
The 125 is OK, lighter weight than the 225, and sturdy enough to hold heavy things without collapsing. But if you push sideways on it at all, it shifts and twists a lot more than the 225. The 125 is also difficult to lock in the folded position - the plastic wing-nuts just don't hold tightly enough, so the top always wants to flop open unless you carry it very carefully. I'd really only recommend the 125 if you're going to set it up and leave it in place.

Doesn't this version come with the plastic pieces that go into the peg holes on top? The photos don't show those.

Thank you! I spent the entire Thanksgiving weekend putting in LVP flooring and cutting them with a jigsaw on a makeshift bench of 2x4's sitting on cardboard boxes. And for only $20 this would have saved my back...and my sanity. Thanks!

I got these over 15 yrs ago, I can't believe they still make them. Especially in these days of everything has to be plastic.

Same here I've used these over the decades. The newer ones use cheaper metal but $20 shipped is an absolute steal for the utility this thing has given me all these years

To me they are basically sawhorses.
