All-Terrain Sawhorse for Woodworking

BORA® All-Terrain Sawhorse One of Woodworking’s COOLEST tools – Stumpy Nubs

I’m honored to see that James Hamilton – aka Stumpy Nubs – considers the Bora® All-Terrain Sawhorse featuring Tap To Adapt™ technology from STABLZ™ one of woodworking’s COOLEST tools!

Stumpy tried out our All-Terrain Sawhorse and loves that it has a pivot “mechanism that allows each set of legs to rotate several degrees.” He then asks the logical question, “Now, why would you want to rotate your sawhorse legs? Because it makes it fast and easy to level them on uneven ground, providing up to 3 inches of adjustment at any corner with just a quick twist.”

He loves that they also “include many of the other clever features that make Bora Sawhorses so nice. Including legs that fold up in any order and the improved 2×4 slots” that “are set higher than other sawhorses. So, you can have a sacrificial face on top of a sawhorse and still be able to put perpendicular boards to make a bench out of 2 horses.”

Bora Stablz Tap to Adapt All Terrain Sawhorse Reviews at Home Depot

People are Loving STABLZ Tap To Adapt Technology

The new BORA® All-Terrain Sawhorse PM-4520 — the first product on the market featuring STABLZ™ Tap to Adapt Technology — are selling fast! But if you know one thing about me, it’s that my biggest concern is customer satisfaction.

So I took a peek at the reviews, and customers are loving them! I’m going to let the customers tell you what they think. These are ACTUAL reviews from BoraTool.com and HomeDepot.com (where we have 4.7 out of five stars with 20 reviews)!

 

I bought two, set them up to work on a 10/4 slab Trestle Table that I’m building, so serious weight, and these sawhorses are AWESOME! I have an asphalt floor so it’s “level” but a lot of variation and these work flawlessly. Great product and what a great idea. I was so tired of wobbly sawhorses and trying to shim so that I could do cuts. These are great.

 

The BORA 36 IN. STEEL ALL TERRAIN SAWHORSE (2-PACK) is a great addition to your workshop and are a must-have if you are a contractor traveling to worksites. These are light-weight, but sturdy and can handle uneven terrain due to a unique design in the way the legs deploy.

 

These sawhorses are a game changer. They take about 5 seconds to set up. They adapt to ~3” of level change in the ground. They are designed to be built into temporary workbenches with supreme ease.

 

These are a real quality set of saw horses, especially if you work with them on uneven surfaces such as a lawn… The wobble-free feature is made possible by the legs swiveling. So if one sawhorse is wobbling, you can pull a tab button and tap/turn the legs until they are on even surface and wobbling stops.

 

The Bora 36 in. Steel All Terrain Sawhorse have set the bar in sturdy and portable storablity… And with the new STABLZ legs design that allows for uneven ground for the legs to twist for a very level stable work table. Genius!

 

The BORA all terrain saw horses are pretty neat. My driveway is anything but flat, so having the all-terrain feature to help create a work surface when I need to rip a sheet of plywood or something is really nice.

 

By far the best saw horses I have ever owned. Absolutely no complaints about them at all!

Kayleen McCabe Plans to be First STABLZ Customer

Kayleen McCabe Gets a Sneak Peek at Affinity Tool’s New Sawhorse

When I met DIY Network personality Kayleen McCabe, I knew I needed to connect with her to learn more about her passion for trade careers.

I always look for “aces in places,” people at the top of their fields who I can learn from. That has been one of the keys to my success as an entrepreneur over the years — I proactively reach out to others to open my eyes to things I wouldn’t have thought of on my own and inspire new ideas. Bringing together people with different expertise and perspectives can only result in the best ideas coming together to create superior results.

Kayleen is at the top of her game, and I walk away from every conversation with her with new insights. Because I respect and admire her opinion so much, I brought her to The Point at Otterbein University in Westerville, Ohio, on March 19 to take a look at the prototype of Affinity Tool’s new Bora All-Terrain Sawhorse.

 

I won’t lie, I was almost giddy when she said,

“This is so easy to use! I have needed this at so many work sites over the years, and now it’s here!”

Not only was she impressed with the prototype, she was also impressed with the process. By tapping into the fresh ideas and perspectives of the students in the Engineering Department at my alma mater, I ensured that the sawhorse will be a forward-thinking, game-changing product.

With Kayleen’s stamp of approval, I know this product is something that tradespeople need to make their jobs easier. Once the new Bora All-Terrain Sawhorse is on the market, you’ll find it on Kayleen’s worksites across the country.

 

About Kayleen McCabe

Kayleen McCabe Loves STABLZ SawhorseThink construction is a guys-only field?  Think again! Licensed contractor Kayleen McCabe has been swinging hammers and toting tool belts since the ripe age of six, when she shadowed her dad’s overhaul of their Denver home. In 2009 she beat dozens of male competitors Stud Finder to win her own series.

For five seasons, DIY Network’s Rescue Renovation showcased Kayleen’s skills and wit as she swept in and saved almost 100 ill-fated home renovations — from an NFL running back’s kitchen to a coalmine-turned-man-cave.

Kayleen is an ardent advocate of trade careers and education, long seen as inferior to traditional four-year college degrees and white-collar jobs. Her goal is to shed light on the rising demand for trade professionals that’s outpacing vocational training – and to help restore America’s respect for the trades in the process.

Companies Team Up to Offer Wobble Free World to Craftsmen

STABLZ All Terrain Full Contact Products, featuring TAP TO ADAPT technology, and Affinity Tool Works are teaming up to bring customers a wobble free world.

STABLZ All Terrain Full Contact Products feature a patented pivoting triangular support that easily adapts to uneven surfaces to provide four points of contact and stabilize tables, sawhorses, and more. It’s applicable in restaurants, on construction sites, for tailgating and camping — pretty much any product elevated off the ground. It will make life easier for everyone from construction workers to weekend handymen, from restaurateurs to flea market vendors, and from avid campers to soccer moms.

Affinity Tool Works, a family-owned business in Michigan, is a licensee of STABLZ patents. The innovative solution will provide convenience for craftsmen of all skill levels.

“It solves a universal, long-standing problem — stability in shops, garages, or on job sites. Our users are going to appreciate the convenience and safety that STABLZ brings to their work,” said Connor Ursell, business development manager for Affinity.

“STABLZ gives Affinity a competitive edge over existing products on the market, which are using old design and technology. From a business standpoint, STABLZ is a big deal — it’s unique, patented, nobody else has it, and it solves a real problem,” Ursell added.

Initially, Affinity will offer the STABLZ Tradesman as a product for individual purchase in fall 2019. Then Affinity will incorporate STABLZ technology into a number of their existing products under their Bora brand. “We’ve been working closely with STABLZ to develop solutions and prototypes specific to our needs,” Ursell said.

According to entrepreneur and founder of STABLZ Gary Hoyle, “STABLZ is scalable to any size and product, and our ability to quickly prototype those products makes us an ideal partner.”

To develop STABLZ products, Hoyle tapped into creative, up-and-coming engineering talent through a collaboration with The Point, an innovation center at his alma mater, Otterbein University in Westerville, Ohio. “The engineering students

at The Point helped with prototyping, testing, tweaking, and designing variations for different uses,” Hoyle said.

“Working with Gary, the STABLZ team, and the team at Otterbein has been a pleasure,” Ursell said. “There has been a real synergy between STABLZ and Affinity, not only on this product, but also working together as small businesses with similar outlooks on products and speed to market.”

Hoyle has facilitated over a dozen business startups and several product rollouts in a variety of industries, including restaurants, manufacturing, green vehicles, sports, entertainment, home services, and consumer products.
