@eddiecalder - The only way to buy them right now is through our campaign page. After today, keep an eye on our web site for ways to pre-order Centipede Sawhorses directly from us. Come February of 2014, they should be available in a store near you! (They'll certainly be available online...)

I think it is a great looking product. My only question deals with using the Centipede on a jobsite that doesn't have a nice flat surface to sit on. How does uneven ground affect the stability?

@Ivanhoe
The Centipede is a system based on redundancies. No single strut or crossbeam is doing all the work. Each steel tube and bar is sharing the load with the others. Additionally, each strut provides direct support between the ground and load. If there is no ground underneath the strut, it simply will not support any weight while the struts surrounding it support the extra weight.

Technically, traditional sawhorses require relatively flat ground unless they are custom cut for every contour on the job site. We figure this will work on rough ground about as well as traditional sawhorses and in any case, the table top or board to be cut will only be as level as the ground beneath it.

The way we look at it, the Centipede is to sawhorses what screws were to nails. Love 'em or hate 'em, traditional sawhorses will always have their place in our projects and in our hearts. But, in most cases, there is now a better way to get the job done!

Not something I like from the start not sure why. I'm sure some will like as for me will pass on this tool or what ever it is.

Talking First Production Run Complete!

The first production run is completed and on its way! We expect to start shipping the first units by May 15th & we'll soon be able to start getting answers to these questions with some real world testing. Once the first 300 people start using theirs, we'll have a much better understanding of the Centipede Sawhorse's limitations.
Can't wait to see what everyone thinks once they get their hands on one!
