« Part 7: Water dust filter interest Part 8 of Five years later, Workshop Remodel. Going from pretty to functional series Part 9: The Assembly/Outfeed Table »

An moving on. I’ve got a lot done in the shop, outfeed table, dust collection plumbing, Table saw stand, cleaning, new router table fence, new jointer blade installation, to name a few.

Here is a video of my attempt at yet another miter saw stand. This will make number four. The first two were on long permanent locations. The third was a temporary mobile one for the house while I was doing the house renovations. This one is a mobile one that incorporates ideas after using this saw for 5 year with all the other stands. More importantly, it incorporates thing that I don’t need to have in a miter saw stand.

See the Video on youtube HERE

Daniel, my compliments re your miter saw dust collection. Having a sliding compound saw similar to yours, I know from where you speak. I have yet to go to the lengths that you have to get that evasive dust, but I appreciate your video, and have gotten some ideas. Also admire the folding extensions you made with drawer slides. I need to go back to view the previous parts of your machine makeovers, but wanted to give you a ‘thumbs up’ on your efforts. Best to you in the future.
