I have a brother that wanted me to send more pictures of my miter saw setup after changing the mounting system to an all metal connection. I needed my miter saw recently building a shelf for some guitars so I took some pictures. That got me to thinking, maybe I should share some pictures with the newer up and coming generation of woodworkers on the site.
Here are photos of my miter saw “wings” as I like to call them. I built these when I purchased the saw in 2002. The legs are adjustable. I often have to set it up on some rather rough terrain. I use the saw for everything from interior trim to rough cut framing buildup. The stock stop currently is just a piece of plywood screwed to a 2×4. I use a clamp to hold it in place. It’s important to cut a small bevel around the edges of the stop, both sides & back for sawdust buildup
Miter saws generate a lot of sawdust, even when used outside. I keep a brush hanging on the saw stand when in use. The wings are eight feet in length. The whole setup fits in the back of my pickup truck with room to spare. It sets up at the job site in around fifteenth minutes. I hope this gives some of you some ideas. Thanks for looking.
