Topic tags/keywords: question tip

How do you determine the finished height of sawhorses? Ex: I have a 40” table, rollers will take up about an inch. So I would need a finished height of 39”. How would I figure this for “standard” A-frame sawhorses?

Since your table is at 40” and a typical tablesaw is closer to 36”, you might consider an adjustable design that can accommodate multiple options. A quick search will find quite a few design options. Here is the first I ran across. Hope this helps.

I’ve thought about that, but steered away from it because once set I wouldn’t be changing it. The 40” is just a number for an example, just not sure the actual dimension right now. I’ve also thought about folding ones like they have on the Wood magazine site, but those would have to be modified to accept the rollers that I’m looking at. I was hoping that there was a simple formula that I didn’t know about.

A squared + B squared = C squared.
