The Kreg Mobile Project Center can be used as a conventional workbench, sawhorse, assembly table or clamping station—all in one compact, foldable, portable package. With the extension tables folded down, it's a sturdy sawhorse. Flip the extension tables up and it becomes a large work surface with a grid of dog holes for clamping. Included Automaxx Bench Clamp slides into center-mounted T-track to secure stock horizontally, or into side slots to clamp stock vertically. You can create a larger work surface by attaching two Project Centers side-by-side with the butterfly keys, or by connecting them with 2x4s installed in the integral brackets. A piece of 3/4'' plywood on the 2x4s brings it flush with the extension tables, so all of the clamping features are still available for use.


Features:

  • Sturdily constructed with steel legs and tough polypropylene tables
  • Open tables can support up to 350 pounds
  • Top features built-in trays for screws, and holsters for your drill
  • Kreg screw containers hook onto notches around the perimeter of the table
  • Lower shelf holds up to 25 lbs. of supplies out of the way, but close at hand
  • Includes Automaxx clamp, four swiveling bench dogs and bushings that let you easily protect the aluminum T-track with a sacrificial 2x4 during sawing

Kreg Mobile Project Center
I have a small work space and just do not have the room for a traditional wood working bench. I have two of these units and I am able to create the work space I need when I need it by either attaching them both together directly or by using 2 2x4’s and some 3/4 inch plywood (as seen in copious amounts of YouTube videos). When the work space is not needed they can be folded up and stored. They are very well made and the accessories that come with them are very helpful as well. Currently I am using one as a planer stand as I am milling some stock for my next project and the project center is rock solid.

When I was researching the Mobile Project Center prior to the purcashe of my first one, some concerns that some reviewers had were in regard to pinch points. There is one particular YouTube reviewer who has made some pretty strong statements regarding the safety(actually I believe he called them “inherently unsafe”) due to the pinch points where the tables fold. My response to that criticism is this, almost any object we as human beings come into contact with can be unsafe if not used properly and as it was intended. If the most important rule of wood working or using tools in general is to wear safety glasses, then the second (arguably) is don’t put your fingers in places where they should not go (obvious right?). Kreg also clearly marked the area as a pinch zone as well. If this fellow is concerned about the safety of a folding table, then I would be interested to hear what he thinks about the table saw. If you go on YouTube and search Kreg Mobile Project Center the video I am referencing will be obvious.

This is a fantastic product. Well designed and engineered, which is no surprise coming from Kreg. One is great but if you can afford it, buy 2. I haven’t regretted it, and I bet you won’t either.

Will the top soak up moisture and swell when it gets wet?
greg b on Oct 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hello greg b,
I've had two of these work benches for over a year, using it for a variety of applications, and the top has remained unphased by exposure to moisture. Its a very hard and durable plastic and holds up well. In regards to your question, if you plan on exposing it to moisture for long periods of time, I'd worry more about the hinges and mechanism rusting and not functioning properly.
Also worth noting, when I have spilled paint or glue on the top, as long as you address it quickly, it cleans up pretty well.
Hope this helps...
Can this work bench hold a 4 x 8 piece of wood?
w m on Jul 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: If you have the sheet goods centered on the stand, yes. If you are then going to saw a foot off of a side or end you are going to have to put a sawhorse at the end you are cutting. I use the bench for finishing, smaller sheet good cutting, but for full size sheets, use a saw horse with it.
Does this have leveling feet?
Dave K on Feb 21, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The feet swivel or rock to some degree and seems to self level. Does not self level on uneven ground where there are lots of dips and rises, say a non level portion of your yard.
Can wheels be attached to the feet so it can be rolled around?
Steve M on Nov 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Rockler sell a wheel kit for all their big items. You have to buy the wood also to make it fit your tables and what ever machine you have. I bought one for my table saw, Easy to build and assemble!
can you purchase spare parts for the mobile project center?
Phil M on Jun 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello,
The parts that come in the accessory pack and the rubber feet are replaceable.
Thanks!
