Everyone needs a pair of saw horses, right?

I have built mine with height adjustment so I can use it as outfeed support for my different height machines.

Original design is from Fine Woodorking July/August 2008. Size of the sawhorse was too big for my shop, I have resized to make a smaller one.

The top is interchangeable for different purposes and housed in a bridle joint. To increase the strength of strecher I have added 8mm bolts to both sides.

Really fine work and elegant horses.
Is there some kind of locking or is it the wingnuts and fricktion that holds it from moving down, when there are load on top.
Best thoughts,

mafe, at the moment it is just wing nuts. If weight becomes an issue, I can always place a required length piece in the grove to prevent any movement.
