Axminster Trade Saw Horses - Thoughts?
« on: May 10, 2017, 06:28 PM »
I realize that these are new but does anyone have any user experience?

Axminster Trade Saw Horses

The material support arms at either end of each horse are intriguing.

Thanks.

Don't be lazy... make your own.  It's kind of a right of passage to carpenters downunder.

Space always a premium for the travelling tradesman or small shop owner. I gave up making saw horses years ago

I was visiting Axminster 6 or 8 weeks ago and saw these in action. I told them there and then that I would make a video about them as they are really neat. My only problem right now is that I am up to my ears in work and so it is not going to happen for several months maybe more.

I have not looked at their web site to see how they are being presented or even if they have done a video.

They fold up well, look pretty tough and yet are reasonably stable once set up. One needs to have a couple of pieces of 4x2 to create the base for a cutting station. These will need to have a groove cut near each end to allow them to fit into the top frame. I believe that only needs to be a couple of saw cuts but I cannot tell until I get hold of a set.

exactly why I sold my toughbuilts. I had a pair of original Toughbuilts that look exactly like these Axminster ones. The legs would easily ruin a wood floor. I noticed the toughbuilt ones have now been updated to have little feet so Axminster are probably selling a copy of the old style toughbuilts.
