Rated 1 out of 5Â by Sharpedge Stanley fold-up saw horses
Clever fold up action and rigid when unfolded, but they are harder to fold up after they break.
They don't work as saw horses because, as others have mentioned, the surface is very slippery plastic and the ribbed underside does not allow clamping the work piece. So how to use them?
If you put your weight on one to hold the timber, it can easily break. Mine did and I'm only 10 stone (65kg).
Definitely not fit for purpose; even cutting balsa wood with a junior hacksaw as it would just slide around.
Got less than one week's use out of this product. Now looking for proper saw horses.
No problems with Screwfix service or prices.

Great value for money lightweight and folds up nice a small into carry case - very sturdy bought to replace ones that don't fold and took up too much room to store!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by GazzyB Good product
I'd wanted a sturdier pair of tresses after my flimsier ones had collapsed once or twice having probably been overloaded. Read the reviews in these and bought them, cautiously because of the bad reviews about the plastic arms that stop the tresses collapsing. They don't seem as weak as has been suggested and if opened with care I can't see them breaking. I've tried them with load on them and they don't even wobble. With a plank on then I can comfortable walk on them. They are available cheaper else where but I paid the extra because through experience if anything breaks (within reason) I've never had a problem with a refund or exchange with screwfix.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by RussT Great design, poorly made.
Many of the glowing reviews here reflect exactly how I felt when I first started using these saw horses. I could elaborate on their many fine qualities but the fact is they simply don't last. Internal clips to hold the legs lasted a week! The end clips that hold the two units together lasted longer but now one has failed and they have simply become annoying. One of the key features is their compact state when stored or transported, with the clips broken they no longer hold together and the legs fly about.
A shame really as there are few other options that are as handy and compact as these.
