If you made the 2 X 4's on top of those Burros a few inches longer, you would have an easier place to use a clamp when clamping something to them.

I mention this only because I have seen too many EBCOs with 2 X 4's flush with the ends giving no place at all to use a clamp.

I got my Burro sawhorses set up with a sacrificial 1 X 4. With a little modification, I was able to reuse the carpeted caps that I made for working on finished doors.

I added a dab of hot glue to the dowels to keep them from falling out of the springs and hot glued an extension onto the velcro straps using a piece of a velcro cord wrap that I had lying around.

Where do you hang your saw?

I don't see those dowels falling out, but the glue can't hurt.

Maybe they changed something. The dowels seemed a little loose when the legs are folded and one did fall out when I put it back in the box.

I'm on the east coast so I use a sidewinder without a hanging hook.
