This Miter stand is an original, its put together with no real plan except that my saw would sit on the old tool box. i have seen many parts of it on other peoples stands, so I stole some of their ideas. it works! I am thinking about adding a couple of drawers, what do you think?

Excellent build and reuse project! Looks to be very practical. If the end of the extensions (when folded down) are the same hieght as the saw’s table…then I say Brilliant!

Thx for sharing….especially in the cold and snow. I hope there are locks on those casters or it might go rolling down the drive!

I didn’t get so lucky on the tables, but you gave me a good idea for a modification, those wings are adjustable. I need to think on it awhile.

I know what you mean about the cold but at least you don’t have any snow to speak of.

Nice job! I’d probably do drawers, but it depends on what you have to store. I’ve seen a few mobile designs witha dedicated small shop vac stored underneath.

-- - Jei, Rockford IL - When in doubt, spray it with WD-40 and wrap it with duct tape. The details will attend to themselves.

I have a smaller extra jet dust collector I was thinking of dedicating to this saw. I feel you can never have enough drawers I’m not sure what I would put in them maybe my hand planes? I really need a dust hood for the back so that is my new focus, I set the saw up in front of my wood burning stove when its not in use and it gets to be a mess.

great recycle on the toolbox
and I said use the space for a vac
and for a skillsaw there is already
one or two drawers were you can
place tool and sawblades for the machine´s
then it´s all together and can quick be
used ellswere if you have a job for it
aut in town

Randyb, great build.
Love the “over metal cabinet” idea.
Got any specific build details, such as the out wing details and affixing to the metal cabinet.
Are you thinking of powder coating the chop saw yellow??
P.S. Couldn’t have been that cold, the camera didn’t fog up!!

I copied the wings from a shop notes plan, and another book or plan, I can’t remeber. the tables are really cool, they sit on an upsidedown u shaped table. they are groved so you can adjust them back and forth. I put 4 tee nut in the ends of the u shaped part and the top tables sit on 4 screws so you raise or lower and level the top tables. very adjustable. I’m not sure i like the fence and i might change it to a kreg system. I just built the whole thing over my mac tool cart and attached it to the cart thru exsiting holes. these tool carts are not cheap so i didn’t want to damage it. I like cutting to fit and working from a rough draft, I always come up with cool stuff that way. I like red and yellow so the saw stays, but thanks for the suggestion. don’t be fooled by the lack of fog, its cold!!!!!
