Perfect sawhorse

I’m not sure where to post this, it really isn’t a review; so I’ll put it here. There have been quite a few topics about saw horses and how to handle sheet goods. These plastic garbage cans are great. They are wide enough for 2 of them to handle a 4×8 sheet and catch the cut off to boot. A regular sawhorse will let the cutoff fall on the ground.

If you run a saw blade into them, no harm done, they still function just fine and more importantly, the saw blade is still as good as it was when it hit the sawhorse. When sawing small cuts or holes, all the waste goes inside minimizing cleanup. If you need a work bench to place a few tools or a can of finish, just turn them up side down.

Eventually someone has found out the usefulness of the humble bin.

Great idea! They are also stackable, weather resistent, and have no sharp corners to dent the ol’ shins on!

Oh…I’ve worked with G/cans before… They work great… I never thought of posting…. If you need something a little more sturdy….crates work great…however, they are a little closer to the ground…

Thanks for posting…

especially on job site, this works well. I’ve been doing that for years. Less cleanup, easy to stack and move, filled with tools on the way into the jobsite. And they are a pretty good hieght, I use mine in conjuction with my chop saw one way and table saw the other. Totally worth it to buy these quality multi-purpose
saw stand/saw horse/rubbish container/ cut-off catcher/tool carrier/I “CAN” go on and on…..pun intended

Only for the uses I posted. There are a couple of other guys who have patents pending for their uses. :-)) Cease and desist, or pay royalties!!

We use these at our job sites. For the same reason also! That one looks just like our with the busted handle but more saw marks. :p

LOL….. I Don’t mean to laugh but These were the first saw horses that I ever had. And my dad would get mad every time that I cut into one. And next thing you know he was using them for saw horses. Brings back good memories. Thanks you.
