lower platform as a step when the work center is in "Workbench" position. The
footboard is a foot REST only.
4. Do not store work center outdoors or in a damp location.

the tool's instruction manual.
8. Always wear safety glasses when operating power tools.

crank handles uniformly.
10. When assembling your work center, use only the special plastic socket wrench
provided. Use of other wrenches or sockets can damage your work center.

1. The Workmate
425 work center comes partially assembled.
Empty the carton completely onto the floor and identify all the
components. (Fig 1)
2. Tip the front of the Workmate
up and rest it against your knee as
shown in Fig. 2. Pull upwards on both left and right release levers
to unlock Workmate
(Fig. 2a). Using one hand, push the top
of the Workmate
up and away from you while holding the
footrest with your other hand until the frame locks in place. (Fig.2b)
note: new Workmates
are stiff and require more
effort to raise into the locked working position.
3. Assemble two top blocks to the underside of the rear jaw by
fitting the raised posts on the top blocks into the smaller holes
of the rear jaw. Insert bolts through the rear jaw and into top
blocks and tighten with supplied wrench. (Fig 3)
4. Assemble top blocks to middle jaw the same as rear jaw. (Fig 4)
5. With one hand firmly holding the vise jaw assembly, to the front
of the Workmate, remove one of the white plastic shipping
retainers and discard.
6. Aligning the hole in the vise crank with the hole in the vise screw,
push the vise crank onto the vise screw end (protruding from the
front of the vise jaw bracket). Using a hammer, drive the
supplied pin into the aligned holes. Repeat this procedure for
the installation of the other vise crank. ( Fig 5)
7. Complete the assembly by pushing the snap-in knobs into the
holes in the vise cranks. (Fig 6)
8. Install the front vise jaw on top of the top blocks so that the small
holes at each end of the vise jaw fit down over the posts on the
top side of the blocks. With the jaw positioned as described
above insert into the frame as shown. Insert a bolt into the holes
in the jaw and tighten them securely into the holes in the pivot
nut. Use the socket wrench provided. (Fig 7)
9. Select the rear vise jaw, and the two rear top blocks. Position the
rear top blocks on the frame rails so that the tab ears in the
bottom of the blocks fit into the key holes of the frame rail.
Position the top blocks so their raised posts are toward the rear
of the frame. Now install the rear vise jaw so that the small holes
in the ends of the jaw fit over the raised posts on the top blocks
you just installed. (Fig 8)
10. Insert the remaining two bolts, into the holes in the jaw and
through the top blocks into the raised posts of the vise guides.
The holes in the rear blocks are not threaded so you will feel
resistance as you cut threads into them.
11. To close up the Workmate
for storage, pull upward on the two
release levers to unlock the Workmate
levers up pull back and down to close the Workmate

featUreS & aPPLicationS:
One Handed Clamping:
Note: A vise screw clutch allows moving the front vise jaw parallel or
at the same angle to the rear jaw using either one of the crank
handles. Turning both crank handles at the same time (same
direction, different speed or opposite to each other) disengages the
vise screw clutch (causing a normal "clicking" sound), allowing for
independent movement of left and right crank handles. For clamping
pressure, turn the crank handles clockwise.
1. Hold work with one hand and turn one crank handle till work is
held snugly by the vise jaws.
2. Turning both crank handles clockwise after securing material with
One Handed Clamp
work from vise, turn crank handles counter-clockwise. Note: Turning
a crank handle to quickly may cause the transmission belt to come
off the sprocket hub. In this event the transmission belt can be easily
stretched back onto the sprocket hub.
One Handed vertical clamping:
3. Pull vertical locking bar toward yourself and lift front vise jaw
until it is in vertical, locked position. note: Rear jaw must be in
middle "keyhole" position.
changing the indexed Position of the rear Jaw:
4. Install rear jaw in one of three possible indexed "keyhole"
positions by inserting the indexing lug into a keyhole in the vise
jaw bracket. Secure the rear jaw by moving rear jaw to the back
(Fig 13)
of the key hole.
installing the middle Jaw:
5. With front jaw cranked to the front of the work center, insert the indexing
lugs of the middle jaw into the front keyholes. Rear jaw is then installed
in the back keyholes. Turn crank handle clock wise to tighten.
Swivel Pegs:
6. The four supplied swivel pegs can be used in any of the holes
in the front and rear jaws. The pegs are used to extend the size of
your Workmate's holding capacity.
