Customer reviewsGood quality bench, considering the price
Just assembled the bench, which is not much work at all, just bolting the rear base to the bench with two bolts. There are quite a few comments on the bench being shaky. The following trick will likely help. Assemble the rear base with the screws, but do not tighten the screws firmly yet. Put the two wooden boards which are in the packaging of the bench and place them underneath the rear base see photo . Then have someone on the bench at a 30 degree angle and tighten the screws very firmly. After that it should be well aligned with the floor, no wobbling anymore. Another small issue is, that the stop brackets on the main beam of the bench are not well aligned on the beam, they are not welded at the perfect 90 degree angle they should be in see other photo . Not a huge deal, but that is simply a bad fixture or method when welding the stops. That could easily be improved in the manufacturing process. Overall, a decent bench at a reasonable price My dip attachment has not arrived yet, will comment once received and tried out.
