These saw horses were found in a house slated for demolition. They appear to be fairly old. They belong to a friend who was removing salvage from that house.

I hope the photos are self-explanatory. I may never see these again. A metal pin is removed and then reinstalled,  to allow the rail to move up or down.

The first thing I thought was "if the bottom of the verticals were joined you could step on the connector and use the top bar as a clamp"

I often use the back of my truck as a sawhorse. This requires some thought when loading the truck. I picked up this load of material with the sawhorse in mind. It was used to close in the end of a building that I had cut off.

For my next feat, I will require a volunteer from the audience! Perhaps this tiny ad?
