You can also get a set of adjustable feet for uneven terrain.”
I’ll admit that when I first saw this, I thought, “Oh, another portable sawhorse.” But when you see some of the crazy things you can form the Bossmate into — like, for example, a full workbench! — it starts to look pretty slick. Obviously its portability’ll make it a winner on the jobsite, but this might also work well as a workplace in an apartment garage or in other situations where building something “to fit” isn’t a good option.
The Bossmate ships in three basic versions: the Primate (a heavy-duty version of the original Bossmate), the Mightymate (a light-duty version), and the Handymate (a short version). You can then add numerous attachments to customize any of the for the job at hand. Attachments include roller supports (great for feeding a miter saw), a shelving unit, and a board support. You can also pimp yours out with leveling feet if you’re planning on using it in the garage or shop.
Pricing seems pretty reasonable with the Primate starting at $70. Roller supports go for $40 as does the shelving unit.
Look for a hands-on with these down the road a bit.
