About the WALKO Workbench System

The WALKO Workbench System was specially developed for the on-site tradesman, craftsman, and the do-it-yourself hobbyist. The WALKO workbench allows you to work safer, quicker, and more comfortably. Cutting large sheet goods, clamping large or small materials or working in tight spaces, WALKO gets the job done. The ability to morph the table into numerous positions allows you to decide which position and working level is best for your application.

The WALKO Workbench System - made in the Netherlands.

Build your own system.

WALKO can be configured in a number of different ways: A-frame with multiple table positions to suit your working height and needs, flat on the ground for ripping full sheet materials or assembly, up against the wall for assembly and ripping.
Accessorise WALKO with extra supports, tabletops, or develop your own tabletop designs; WALKO can carry your drop saw, takes a drop-in router plate, becomes a sanding station and acts as your one-stop cutting station whether you cut on the sacrificial bamboo tables, or on the replaceable plastic support strips, WALKO gives you all the help you need to get the job done.
