I recently bought a pair of Toughbuilt sawhorses from Lowes as they had a two for $50 price and free shipping to the USVI.
Such a deal.
Looking at them now that they finally got here (it took a month) I’m quite impressed and thinking since the two for $50 is still active buying another pair would be no bad thing.
The really nice thing about the sawhorses is that they fold up and can fit in otherwise unused space in the cockpit lockers. The downside is that they are heavy suckers.
Which puts me into the need/want conundrum… do I really need another pair?
It’s a foregone conclusion that I’ll be building another mast for “So It Goes” in the near future and not having four bombproof sawhorses makes for a great spar bench. Plus I’ll be needing to haul out sooner rather than later so it would seem that a second pair of these sawhorses would pay for themselves within the year. Even better is that they’ll save me time in the future not having to deal with the hassle of buying materials and making temporary saw horses and tables.
So, having passed the need/want test I guess it’s time to get another pair.
