    Don’t know where this falls into but hand tools seems like a good place. I needed some good saw horses recent and did a search . Another youtuber did a comparison of Matthias Wandel and Jimmy Deristas designs (youtubers)

    Matthias was the winner according to him so I built his design. These horses were easy to build and seem to be super strong. I’m using them mainly for spraying doors. I still need to work on my spinner setup, the first version I wasn’t happy with.

    Looks like they should hold up for you. Do they stay in one are most of the time (shop) or are they moved around a lot?

    Best saw horses I have found are bought. The trojan horses are great.

    The Trojans are excellent. I have used another set just and good (shark bite), but I have never been able to find them for sale.

    No matter how good you think you are you there is always someone that is better, or can teach you something.

    Mine are “ToughBuilt” folding horses…they are advertised to hold 1100 lbs per pair. If not for the fact that they can take a finger off when folding them up, they are great.

    Yes just for the shop but I would take them on a job if need be.

    The main perpose was for spraying doors. The door spins so both sides can be finished at the same time.

    I don’t think you would catch me laying under there 🙂 I prefer making mine out of wood .

    I have a set of the Trojan horses and I haven’t used them.
    I should sell them.

    Good looking horses, Jerry. I like the door spinner rig. Good idea!

    As a framer, we used horses a lot!! For the last 20 years, I have stuck with the Ebco foldable horses. Menards has them pretty often for $10 each, so I stock up there a couple times a year. They are light, portable, strong, and I don’t have to build them.

    Good job on those saw horses Jerry.
    I bought last year 2 sets of “Blue Hawk 32-in Plastic Saw Horse” from Lowes for a total of $25 with tax. they were on clearance and cost normal $40 a set.
    Glad I bought them and they are working out great.

    That’s a lot fancier then the ones I used to build, but for your shop use I’d say they are great.

    I’ve just been using $10 folding horses from CT lately.

    I have a few pairs of the cheap plastic ones as well , they work fine for stacking materiel on . However when you start pulling boards off is when they become unstable . Here’s the video that sold me on this design . You can skip ahead if it bores you but at 3:18 he explains my reasons for choosing this style . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2efSTBtenJM

    After watching that video, it’s kind of a no-brainer. I am in need of a pair for my shop; these will be my choice, too.

    I have a few pair of the Ecco folding horses, pair of the Dewalt folding horses, a couple shop built horses of my own basic design…I still have my plans for Basswood’s Trihorse…just have never got around to building them. I think once I do they might be a game changer…

    Now that sounds like a winner

    The Matthias horse is pretty solid. I might have to make a pair.
    I do have a pair of plastic ones that have been going strong for easily the past 10 years or more.

    We have some shop made ones we use for spraying doors and trim and then a couple pair of these. They have held up great over the last 15 plus years. We attached a 2×4 to the top for a sacrificial cutting top.

    My buddy with his finishing shop had built sawhorses that had an adjustable top to raise or lower as the job called for. I always admired those babies but never took the time to build a pair. When you are working on a cabinet, the waist high horse puts the work too high.

    That Trihorse setup looks real cool and severs alot of jobsite needs . If I did that type of work I would build a set .
