- Husky •Husky 17181116 Heavy-Duty X-Sawhorse Update
- Brand: Husky | Category: Supports and Bases
I did a review on this indispensible tool a few months back. It appeared at the that these were unfortunately dropped from Home Depots inventory. That was a sad day even for someone that already has two of them. Well wandering through HD’s isles the other day, I found a whole stack of them. The ones I have use aluminum pillars, whereas the new ones are using heavy plastic. I doubt the difference has any effect on the sturdiness of the stand/bench but I do like the pretty aluminum.
If you don’t have one or two of these, you’re missing out on one fantastic tool. I use it virtually for every project. Recently when making some of the diamond/3D block cutting boards, I’ve taken to putting a piece of 1” granite remnant on top of it to ensure the boards are as flat as possible during glue up. My son in law uses the one I gave him as a TV stand. Want a work bench, just use two with some MDF laid over them. It’s much more stable than saw horses because there is more surface to lay the MDF across. When you’re done, just pop the top, slap it onto the center cylindar, and fold the X…..pretty sure I could do the whole process in 3 seconds or less.
Bottom line…every shop needs one. Check out the last review I did on it, and you’ll see nothing but accolades for this amazing tool.
