    Such a simple elegantly effective design (the Workmate), the car isn't a shoddy looker either.

    I've had a Workmate for at least 20 years it's had loads of use, packs away small and it's portable. A real design classic.

    I remember my dad seeing the ad on TV and the next day picking one up. Perhaps the most usefull thing in the garage.

    Call that a work mate!?!



    Pah, a proper work mate, makes the tea, fetches the power saw, applies the tourniquet, waits for the ambulance.
