I do some subcontract for the US Navy building shipping crates for Aircraft Carrier Flight-deck equipment.Since I do the work on-site I needed some collapsible or folding sawhorses.I bought a couple of the yellow painted steel sawhorses from Home depot, but they moved too much when working on heavier crates (over 500 pounds).I ended up with some made by Toughbuilt which were better, but after a while they loosened up.

Craftsman MiterMate Saw...Oops, I goofed again.

Update to this review at the bottom labeled “UPDATE” Yet another $225 mistake, and the reason I KNOW when I buy something without thinking about it for about a month that I’ll probably goof. I just do a little work around my house, but my loving wife lets me buy nice tools. We figure the cost of a tool is less than hiring someone to do the work. I’d been looking at miter saws for a while; I have two radial arm saws in the shop, but it’s a pain to run back a...
