love this stool.
this is a wonderful and comfortable chair, I use at my scroll saw and at my work bench. Rugged, but wish it was on wheels
Worth the sale price, maybe not full.
Ordered at the $50 discount; delivered surprisingly promptly by UPS. Box arrived damaged, and obviously had previously been opened/resealed. Contents were mostly in good condition (two cosmetic chips on the seat, noticable mostly because they expose white under the black) so I accepted it. At sale price I'm willing to take a refurb/return. Additional evidence it's a refurb: Looks like one of the seat mounting holes has a thread-repair insert. That can be as strong as, or stronger than, the original so I'm OK with it. Assembly was straightforward, though the diagram could be improved to show that the footrest drops onto the post AFTER the post is installed into the base, resting above the bulge. Much of the assembly is just snap/friction fit, which is OK but means you may have to be careful when moving it from place to place. (I'd have preverred a screw or setscrew to lock these pieces together, so I could pick it up without worrying... though of course if it did disconnect I can just shove it together again.) "Tractor-style" seat is reasonably comfortable; the non-adjustable low backrest is actually not badly placed for lumbar support. Even when the seat is fairly high, the wide five-leg base seems to be quite stable. Feet are standard snap-in, not adjustable. Might be possible to substitute five casters, if you prefer. Height adjustment, as usual, is by air strut. This means that the seat has some "bounce" to it, increasing as you increase the height. Toward the upper end of the range, you need to put the seat position significantly above where you want it to be with your weight on it. Also at the high end of the range, getting on and off the stool can be a bit awkward... but it's stable enough that I've had no problems using the footrest ring as a step to board it. The seat swivels surprisingly nicely. (FWIW, I do expect to use this set fairly high most of the time, since I want it as a way to comfortably use the same countertop-height benches/desks whether standing or sitting. A serious drafting chair would probably be a better solution and I may upgrade later, but -- on sale -- this was a cheap way to try out the concept and see how well it works for me.) Long-term, the question will be how well the seat and air strut hold out, and at full price I'd expect slightly better materials and _not_ refurb... but at sale price, I think I definitely got my money's worth.
Stool maybe but WOODCRAFT is great
good fit for my work bench and light weight, however: it is plastic and the seat cracked shortly after I received it. I would not recomend the stool but I give WOODCRAFT the highest recommendation as they replaced the seat at no charge as soon as I contacted their customer service. I would recommend this to a friend with reservations.
Not Man Sized
I am a 6' tall 220lb ahtletic man, the seat on this chair is not sized for a man of my size and the front corners will dig painfully into my legs. I loved this stool in concept but in practice it is too uncomfortable for use.
I like the look and functionality of the chair. My only complaint is the five feet are plastic. When I say feet, I am referring to the gliders that make contact with the floor. When my package arrived, some of the feet had already broken in shipment. Prompt service by Woodcraft had a new base to me quickly. I have had it over a year. Some of the plastic feet have broken. Luckily, I had kept the unbroken ones from the original base. This chair will probably last a good couple years, but it is not something you will pass down to your kids.
I take it all back
After my post about the workshop stool, customer sevice contacted me and offered to make it right. Kudo's and thank you. You have restored my faith.
at six months old the tractor seat cracked out and is unusable.
Comfortable and versatile
Great addition to workshop - large feet protect padded floor
I would buy this product again
Excellent design. Great shop stool.
I haven't had this for long but it seems to be a good deal. It's not the best seat available but for the price I think it will do nicely.
I got this for Christmas and I LOVE it.
My best Christmas gift. I use this at my sewing table and at my kitchen counters. It has allowed me to return to doing things that my bad back and legs had taken from me. Love the foot rest. Lack of rollers make it safer to get on and off the stool without it rolling away from me. The glide feet and light weight still allow me to easily move it from place to place.
Not a world beater.
It's a little on the light side, as far as construction. The black dress pieces on the legs were broken when it arrived.
SCREW HOLES ARE SHALLOW
THE SCREW HOLES FOR THE BACKREST ATTACHMENT TO THE SEAT ARE VERY SHALLOW. WHEN ASSEMBLING, I INSTALLED ONE WITHOUT THE BACKREST, AND IT COLLIDED WITH THE BOTTOM OF THE HOLE, SLIGHTLY DEFORMING THE SEAT PAN. MY MISTAKE, BUT THE DESIGN COULD BE MADE MORE FOOLPROOF.
Comfortable Shop Stool
Box arrived with one corner damaged. When mounting the seat, I found two of the special bolts missing. Called Woodcraft, and they immediately sent two replacements. Folks there were quite helpful and seemed to know the product. A pleasure to work with.
Great stool, highly recommend
Sturdy, easy to assemble, swivels and height adjusts. Seat and back support very comfortable Steady to sit on and foot rest great. Not too heavy so easily moved but no wheels(which I prefer). I had to get a second one because my wife loves to use it at her sewing table.
excellent stool , easy to assemble
Easy to assemble and sturdy.
A little flimsy for us hefty ones
Although the description states that it will hold 350 lbs., the seat and back are thin and flimsy plastic and don't feel as though they will support that much (and I don't weigh anywhere near that much...). the seat is also extremely slick and slippery, definitely requires a non-slip pad. Don't think I'll return it because I really need a good stool for my silversmithing worktable, but right now I'm really wary of it - at least, until I find the right pad and can overcome my fear of the seat breaking/collapsing under me.
Great Product for the Price. I bought 2 for my shop, my daughter loved them so much she took one for her art studio and I really would like to buy 2 more.
