Adjustable trestles

Noticed in Lidl this morning some Powerfix Adjustable trestles for £14.99.
A number of preset height so not infinitely adjustable out of the box.
Has anyone used this, and is how easy to make infinitely adjustable?

Hi Jeremy,

Looks like you're building up a head of steam now!

Will you be attending Railwells on Sunday?

If you are, would it be possible for me to purchase a railmotor chassis c/w bogie, and also is it possible to purchase an extra 8' bogie?
