Anyone familiar with the Stanley Zag Folding Workbench? I'm just
getting started with woodworking and need to get some sawhorses or
something for use with my circular saw. Would the Stanley Folding
Workbench do the trick, or would I be better off buying two folding
sawhorses? Would one be enough for basic chores, or would I eventually
have to buy a second anyway?
If you buy all 3 then you can build the saw horses to the same height as the
workbench. Then when you have a large piece of wood to work with you have
supports that will provide a level work surface for you. Just my 2 cents.
It's kinda like the chicken and the egg -- I need a work platform to
cut the wood in order to make a work platform. :/
Actually I did wind up purchasing this little baby, and though I
haven't thoroughly put it through its paces yet, I'm impressed. Very
sturdy, the clamps are surprisingly strong, and its lightweight and
folds up tightly to be easily stored. I give it a thumbs up at this

Good info, I'm going to be checking out folding work benches, maybe

Look particularly close at sturdiness while shopping. I got a
Workmate, a GOOD one, as a gift and the BIL fell heir to a cheap one.
