The market is full of weak, wobbly, and crappy folding work tables. There are some good ones too. The new Worx Pegasus folding work table doesn’t look revolutionary, but it does look smartly constructed and nicely featured.
The Worx Pegasus, WX051, isn’t just a folding work table, it’s also a sawhorse. It’s a good size, too, giving you a 31″ x 25″ work surface when in table mode.
When it table mode, it can support loads of up to 300 pounds, and when in sawhorse mode, with the table sides folded down, it can support up to 1000 pounds.
The Worx Pegasus comes with 2 quick clamps, and 4 clamp dogs that can be placed in holes in the work surface. This allows you to clamp everything from narrow boards to bigger sheets.
You can clamp something to the edge, such as for easier cutting.
Or in the middle, with the movable clamp jaw and clamp dogs.
The clamp dogs and quick clamps can also be configured to hold non-square or rectangular materials, such as a circular tabletop.
And if you need to secure boards larger than the max clamping width, you can reposition the clamps. While it might not be as secure a way to clamp something, it’s definitely better than not being able to clamp larger boards at all.
When you’re all done for the day, the Worx Pegasus folds closed for storage.
Need more worktop space? It also features a “joiner link,” so that you can attach multiple units together.
Partial metal construction, a temporary storage shelf, and holes for quick access to small parts help to elevate the Worx Pegasus design above simpler designs.
The name is pretty clever too. Get it? It’s a sawhorse with folding wings – the two table top sides. Pegasus!
Original Price: $120
Update: Amazon’s pricing has dipped below the original MSRP price of $120. I’ve seen it go as low as $103 with free shipping.
It’s also available at Lowes for the same price.
