" Very easy to put together. To make life easier have the following to hand:
1 × 14mm, 2 × 13mm, 1 × 10mm, 1× 8mm spanners, (or sockets etc) and a Phillips screwdriver (PZ2).

" Easily assembled and seems fairly robust. Good range of adjustment.I just got the one to use as a take off trestle for the table saw, could be tempted to get another. It don't quite fold flat as the description, but not too bothered. "

" Light and easy to transport folds small but the nuts and bolts work loose over time I had to use thread locking compound on all the bolts since that it's been a great job no problems worth it for diy use and a good price "

" I wanted something sturdy to use for a workbench/saw table etc but can be stored away easily. It came flat packed but was quick to put together, the trestle folds almost flat to transport or to store. The height adjustment is ideal to keep the work at level to reduce bending over. "

" Not the highest quality. Be careful not to over tighten screws and nuts. Could do with spring washers or nyloc nuts, I can see these working loose after time. Does not fold down as flat as expected. When they say not for standing on they really mean it, however pretty sturdy for supporting piece of work. "

A poor product!
30 May 2015
By
, Devizes
" I could not reconcile my opinion with the other favourable reviews of this product.
I bought a set of two and it took an excessive amount of time to assemble the first one.
Some of the folded brackets were so badly made they would not fit the parts they were meant to join with so I had to modify them.
Some of the screws were too short to reach fully through their Nyloc nuts.
When assembled there is no diagonal bracing in the tressle frame to give it rigidity so it rocks end to end (more like a rocking horse than a saw horse!) and works the screws loose.
It also does not fold up properly and the adjustable work rest jams in its slides.
It badly designed and poorly manufactured.
I did not bother to assemble the second one but returned them both and exchanged them for the Folding Stanley saw horse pair.
Much better! *****

Expensive scrap metal
4 Jan 2014
By
, Devon
" These are so bad I am struggling to write something that can be posted in the public domain.
Very poorly made and judging by the contents and the damaged packaging I suspect the trestles I received had already been returned and then simply resealed (badly) and returned to stock for resale with some bits broken or damaged.
Even without the above problems they are such bad quality that they would be returned anyway and I can't believe any reputable firm would offer them for sale.
Avoid! "

Poor quality
7 Jan 2013
By
, Preston
" Wish I had seen one of these already assembled before buying from the catalogue.
This product was let down by a lack of manufacturing quality control shown by a mis-shaped box section that would not fit into either of its 2 slots, and a chain that snapped under no stress.
The product design is also poor, since the trestle stands on its "heels" only, so that floor contact (and grip) is minimal.. and.the flimsy plastic end caps that make contact with the floor do not inspire confidence.
Bought 2 of these today, but will be returning both tomorrow. "
