In case you haven't discovered it, YouTube has a lot of videos on the WorkMate. I like the ones Marty puts out. Check 'em out when you get time.

Hi, Herb.

I have been looking around in m y workshop for the plastic inserts that you mentioned but I could not find them. So I decided to make new ones out of wood. Later IŽll send the details.

I've managed to lose 1 of the plastic blocks, but the other 3 have done their job well for many years. Just had another look at mine, I think I have a rare one. The "workmate 400" stickers on each leg, one of them is on upside down.
