    I'm going to order a couple of different sizes of these. Great idea for a work bench or "sawhorse" that easily collapses for storage or transport.

    Looks pretty good.
    I wonder how high you could stack them as scaffold before OSHA tells you to get down...

    Yeah, the prices are to the right. I thought they were pretty decent.

    The uneven ground is one of the only real downsides I could think of as well.

    Very COOL and innovative idea as long as you are setting this up on a flat surface!

    Can't wait for it to hit the shelves in Walmart, oh, that would be the Chinese knock-off version...

    :omg:

    The man in the video is incompetent with a saw horse and yet they let him use a circular saw. Not the kinda guy I want showing up on my driveway. JB

    So....$120 for a 4' x 8' system...that won't hold a 2x4 unless you carry a sheet of plywood with you also kind of eliminating the space savings.

    don't see it replacing sawhorses, but it does look like an easy stand for a work bench as long as the ground is flat

    I think the yellow star shaped caws that go on the posts will allow you to lay out 2x4's .
    And with some scrap banner and a little HH66 you could fab together a one man easy-up pup tent.

    Right or wrong?

    But it's reality, I purchased the Telpro Panel lift (USA designed and manufactured) back in 1995 for $599.95, the other day I was at Harbor Freight and they are selling a Chinese knock-off for $199.95.

    February will be here before you know it. Yesterday I believe it was April. Today we're almost at the end of July.

    It's a kickstarter campaign. If they get enough money to fund it they'll put it into production. Takes time to get them developed and roll them out.

    Kind of like the "please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery" you see on tv infomercials. They wait until they see how sales are going before ramping up production.
