Stanley Folding Saw Horses
Waste of money
These saw horses on the face of it look good, but the biggest let down is the poor quality of the hinges, this was my second set, I thought maybe I was unlucky with the first, but even this sets hinges broke while planning only it's 2nd door. I've had to adapt the hinges using nuts, bolts & washers which only cost me a couple of quid, surely the design could be improved.

Worst benches I have ever used
I have had 2 pairs of these both broke within the first week, they don't even stand up straight they buckle with the weight of one sheet of 18mm ply, you try to cut anything on them they either fold up or fall over, if the ground is not perfectly flat they do not stand a chance well they don't stand a chance on flat floor either, I threw one of mine out of a window in anger, DO NOT BUY!!!!!!

Not a bad price with a max capacity three times my body weight..... BUT the bracing is fixed using plastic pop rivets, one of which broke on first setting them up, three of the four braces had broken within a day!
The good news..... Four lengths of nylon cothes line through the legs does just as well and is lasting longer than the manufacturer's best effort.
You could re-attach the braces with M10 bolts but rope just as effective.
First total fail from Screwfix, not that bad a run

Bought 2 sets of these recently and although they are plastic and look rather flimsy, once in place they are very strong indeed. Certainly strong enough to make a temporary bench. I used these to support a new worktop whilst i cut and routed it, no problems at all - very stable.
For a keen DIY-er they're fine..
