  • Need Dims for Workmate Table Top segments

    Hey Ryobans & Associates out there...
    I have a Workmate425 Signature Edition that got left out in the weather (not just rain, but snow & sleet. Do not get me started...)

    My intention is to harvestǂ the hardware from the Table Segments & recreate the segments out of either Hardwood planed to match the original pieces or do the same w/Baltic Birch Ply (BBP).

    If any of you out there have needed to do the same or similar, I'd like to know 3 things:
    1. Does anyone know/have the Dimensions of the Workmate425 table top — specifically? (It was different from the Regular Workmate & the Workmate420)
    2. Regarding the Thicknesses specifically, that dimension is critical. (The original worktop was made from Particle Board, and, well, the rain & all that...)
    3. Also asking "operationally" if anyone's tackled this issue, if BBP is used, would any of the following make sense:
      • To order thicker BBP stock & plane the plys down, or
      • ​​​​​To pick up the thickness just shy of the Original Table Top & just not care if it's a squidge thinner, or
      • Is it such a pain in the € that it's just better to go w/hardwood?
    I know that I'm asking a lot, but I haven't found the data/dimensions for the 425 out in the wild anywhere.
    Thanks in advance for anybody's help (if anybody's done this for the 425*.)

    * I actually already have the data for, like, 3 other models, it's just the 425 that's kicking my... ... workmate.

    If your only tool is a hammer, you tend to treat all problems as if they were nails.

      If you are replacing the top totally, then I don't think it seems to matter how thick it is, really as long as you are close. I think its 3/4

      I can measure my WM thickness but I don't even know off the top of my head the model no. its old.

      How about this video?
