After 30 years of owning and abusing a B&D workmate, the original tops were never cut! Today I was using it as a sawhorse (my usual use) and did not check the location before cutting. Oops!

Oops. When you feel resistance, stop :) Applies to circular saws, Q-tips, and eyeballs.

I've had the same workmate since '82. making a new top is on my list
It's about the only thing from B7D I've had any luck with.

I have 2 that i use for sawhorses, to elevate a piece while spraying finish etc. they take up much less room than conventional sawhorses when not in use. I have never used the dog holes or clamping features

I like the desert storm paint scheme... but I think everyone that has done anything can relate! I know I can, many times over... never owned a B7D (didn't know that "love handle" until a few minutes ago! LOL

But I have cut into and through many things with and without intention! :eek:

At least you didn't cut it in half on the other axis - that would be harder to fix!

When I was in my early 20s I owned and ran a picture frame shop. One day my brother came in and was messing around. He laid a piece of mat board on my work table and started cutting through it.

Underneath was a $300 print I was getting ready to frame. I didn't like him even before that.

Reminds me of my brand new circular saw... The first woodworking tool I bought. Set it down and cut the cord clean off, first cut!.
