Thread: Bought A Great Sawhorse & Can't Wait To Try It Out.

  1. #1

    Bought A Great Sawhorse & Can't Wait To Try It Out.

    For my miter saw and other tools, I've just laid it on the floor or outdoors on the lawn, or I'd set up my 2x4 lumber saw horse and a sheet of plywood. Well, those days are over, getting to old on my knees, up & down. (at least that's what I told my wife)

    I looked at several, well known companies, not so well known and low to high prices.

    Kevin,

    That looks like a good set up and should make it much easier for you to work on things.

    They are designing very clever tools these days

    I am waiting for the voice activated ones where you just lay it out and tell it what you want done.

    I bought this one when I got my new DEWALT chop saw. It was worth every penny I paid for it.

    They look great except you still have to lift the saw and put it on the stand. That's the hardest part when you have a bad back.

    That is true Sam, but at least on mine you only do it once to mount it. Now it folds up with the saw in place and I can roll it into the shed until the next time I need it.

    Yep, you can leave the tool on the horse. Like you said Ron, makes life easier.
    I really wanted the DeWalt, but it's more than I wanted to spend and it's larger than mine, so storage is a issue.

    Wish I had it when I built my large deck, 25 years ago. lol
