Last week I bought my first ever workmate clone. Everybody has their price and I succumbed at 980 yen. (less than a fiver). It is a handy height for these kind of jobs that I usually do on a couple of beer crates, and it folds up easily, but it is not particularly sturdy looking.
Now I will have to think of a use for all the bent and broken stainless steel nails I pulled. Stainless always seems such a marvel with all the organic matter of wood rotting away around it. I can imagine they might be fun to weld into something sculptural, but perhaps I should weld them onto the workmate and see if that will make it more solid.
