Saw Horses (Attachments)

I have attached a picture of saw horses that my friend gave me.

Is the top highlighted box used to hold 2x4 and other woods, for cutting? Is there any other functions? When my friend gave these saw horses to me, it came only with one of those brackets. Where can I get an additional bracket?

Is the bottom highlighted box used to hold cords and extension cords?

Thanks

Those saw horses are great. I have four of them. Fold flat for easy storage yet are very strong.
Mine don't have and didn't come with those top brackets.

The fold down shelf is good for temporary storage. Screws, nails, small tools, etc.
I don't have the molded hooks on the end of mine either.

When I do a generic search for folding saw horses.... I don't see any now with those brackets.
Very doubtful you'd find another one.

Stanley makes a similar saw horse. I think they stink! I bought two and would never buy them again. The bottom shelve units never mesh correctly and then they break making the stability useless. Yea the folding part is nice but when they break what good are they? I'll take the metal folding bracket any time. And I have the ability to make them as wide as I want by adding any length 2 x 4. And they fold also.

I no longer use those sawhorses. I still have a 6" scar on my leg that took 30 stitches. I was cutting a heavy 2x12 that was laying across two of those things and the sawhorse I was standing next to shattered unexpectedly. The sharp plastic ripped open the side of my leg. When I got back from the hospital (before our town had urgent care) I took my circular saw to the other three and extracted my revenge and to prevent me from ever trying to use them again.

But you have admit a 2 x 12 on light duty saw horse was not the best decision. Like I said in my earlier post they are not very good. I still have mine but I would never use them for heavy use. Mostly just to use as a table top support.
