Default Review on an excellent cheap workbench!

Saw this at Loews and just couldnt resist. Its a steel frame work bench with power strip, 13" light, two draws with very sturdy roller bearing slides and peg board backing. It has 3 levels of storage, a large bottom shelf, the work bench and an upper shelf with a 3" well so nothing can roll or fall off. Work surface is 4 feet wide 2 feet deep and the whole thing is 5 feet tall. The best part is it was only $88!! It is VERY sturdy and without a doubt an excellent buy. Here is a pic.

Very nice. If i can only get my new garage built maybe i'll buy one.

however, it is lacking the one thing i am looking for in a work space. A rail to prevent parts (esp small screws) from rolling off the edge.

But it looks pretty solid and like fabricating a rail for it wouldnt be do difficult at all.

Lacking one thing... Room. I need room. Lots and lots of it. I am in the process of building my workbench, and hopefully tonight it'll be done.
I will post pics when it's complete

I like the looks of it for sure but there's one thing I might have a problem with & that would be banging my shins on the bottom shelf. Can you comfortably rest your feet on the bottom shelf?

If you are talking to me, it SWEET!!! Endless power, but it bogs at 1/2 throttle a tiny bit, it just needs to be tuned a little bit more then she will be at 100%. I glad i made the choice to get it, and before this engine i had the XTM 24.7 with a nova engine head.
