Sawhorses provide the necessary support to hoist objects in the air so they can be easily cut or altered with hand tools or power tools. Two of them are often used at a time to provide a sturdy balance while you work. In addition, two sawhorses and a slab of wood can also be used to create a portable work bench.
Different types of sawhorses are available depending on your usage and storage needs. Folding sawhorses are helpful when storage space is limited since they can collapse when not in use. Adjustable sawhorses are ideal when you need the ability to adjust the height while you’re working. A higher height may put less strain on your back, but there are also times when a lower height will help you complete other jobs. You can even find folding adjustable sawhorses that give you the best of both worlds.
In addition, portable work benches or workmates lend similar support to help get the job done. Portable work benches usually come as a tabletop or a folding bench, can be stored easily, and have some other built-in features that help you while you work.
Stop in your local Ace for a sawhorse or workmate for your next building project. Be sure to check out our workshop aids guide for more information.
