Brings the price down to $127.99

however, shipping kills the deal... $96.94 shipping brings the total to: $240.11 and I don't see an option for ship to store

Or, you can use the coupon in the October issue of Popular Science, and get it for $139.99.

The only reason I can think of for someone not building their own workbench is if all their tools are broken because they bought them at Harbor Freight.

$139.99 is the good deal price. It's usually $139.99 during their sidewalk events. I took off the wood vice and put on a heavier duty metal one with four heavy duty bolts (vice also bought at Harbor Freight heh). With that mounted on, it's a nice work bench.

I find the Harbor-hate amusing.
I tell ya what, I'm not going to go by a top of the line tool for single use.
Floor nailer, tile saw, whatever specialty project tool, I prefer the cheapest option. Once the project is done, it's just something to lend out, take up valuable garage space, or try to sell on Craigslist. Neither of which are worth the hassle.
Harbor freight has its place, and I'm ok with it.

i have this. My main 2 complaints are the droors don't pull out far enough, and the holes in the top dont line up making the vice less effective.

I've noticed these in a harbor freight store - they seem pretty decent except they also seem pretty wobbly. Maybe it was just poorly put together at the store, but I'd hold off unless you really need a light duty workbench.

@ryanpblyth: It's the assembly. I bought one to use as a reloading / workshop bench and it is very sturdy. It even survived a move from Virginia to Minnesota and is still just as solid.

I would NOT recommend this table to anyone! Too small to be useful and has no bracing making it very wobbly. Save yourself some money and buy some 2x4's and 2x8's and build one yourself.

I've got this bench and have had zero problems with it. Sturdy - even when moved around as needed.

@devexityspace: Don't the stores price match the online deal?

I have it, and it's extremely sturdy, and very durable.

I'd have built my own, but, well, I didn't have a bench to work on. Gotta start somewhere. Besides, this is far nicer than anything I'd be able to build on my own.

It's narrow, but quite long. It has a lot more workspace on it than you might think. I fell in love with it the moment I finished assembling it.

True that the drawers could pull further, but that's easily fixed.

Also true that shipping kills the deal, but the stores have it at the same price.

This bench is worth the money for the top and vices alone. That is, in fact, how I would use it. I'd replace the legs. And while many HF items are crap, let us not forget their amazing value of a dust collector. Add a Wynn pleated filter and you're in biz.

@1rudeboy: I buy a few things at HarborFreight. But I try to buy nothing with a motor. That's just crap. The kind you don't want in a bag of crap.
