WORX Pegasus Folding Table? Login/Join

Anyone own and use one?
Trying to find a replacement for a Black & Decker Workmate.
Reviews of the new B&D Workmates pretty much say they are now crap!
But the WORX Pegasus looks pretty good.
Any suggestions, comments, advice?

No but it looks decent.
FWIW, you might have a better pool of reviews on Amazon (500+) and Lowes (800+).

Yes, I got one last Christmas and love it! I added a power strip to the bottom and look for projects where I can use it.

Simply put, situational awareness mean knowing what is going on around you.

Take a look at this one:

Keter folding workbench.

It's got a larger work surface, has a second surface for resting tools, goes up and down very easily and is rock-solid stable. I have two.

Available at SAMS club for $59 and I think I saw that it is going on sale at either SAMS or Costco but I don't recall for sure.

Yeah, but, if you read the reviews, there are several complaints about low-quality plastic being used where either higher-quality plastic or metal should be, resulting in breakage.

I'd be inclined to stick with the WORX Pegasus. Appears to be better-built.

Kreg seems to be offering many quality products. I got one of their little router tables and it's magnitudes better than competing ones.

I've got a KREG, really stable and overbuilt. Compared to the current B&D...NO comparison.

I bought one of these from home depot and can set it up in a minute. Holds 1500 pounds and the legs store under the table top when not in use.

I've had one for over a year. It doesn't get heavy use but I love mine. I use it for many things. It will hold a lot of weight. I put my table saw, compound sliding miter, etc on it. I paid $99 for it and it was worth it to me.

Edit. I should have said Worx Pegasus instead of "one"

Just because something is legal to do doesn't mean it is the smart thing to do.

Not sure what you are trying to say.



Integrity is doing the right thing, even when nobody is looking.

I don't remember what else I looked at when I was looking for a small router table, I do remember the Bosch specifically didn't compare to what the Kreg offered. There were other tables, maybe Skil IIRC, and they were junk.

I guess what I'm saying is Kreg is better than the competition. Maybe a bit pricier, worth it.

The WORX Pegasus is on sale for $98 bucks and change at Menard's. It looks to be a good, stable, table, but I'm not sure it is worth that with so many other lesser priced options. Just sayin' yo'.
