Being very impressed with this Evolution mitre saw stand i decided that I would use it in the workshop as it has a smaller footprint than my fixed mitre saw and i could move it out of the way when not needed and as the rest of my machines are on wheels and mobile it should fit in quite nicely.
I cut a piece of 16mm plywood to size using my Trend clamp-on straightedge and circular saw
cut four 100mm x 16mm square pieces of plywood and hole sawed a 48mm hole through and counter sunk pilot hole for screws into each block.
I placed each block under the legs and screwed them down.
I fitted two wheels to the underside of the base board one in each corner under the legs and blocks opposite to the same hight as the wheels.
Because the stand only rests on the baseboard it would be difficult to move around and i didn’t want to do a permanent fix as i use the stand outside of my workshop so I cut two hole in the baseboard to feed a cargo strap through and looped it over the cross brace under the top of the stand to secure it to the base .
Although I used an Evolution stand the base can be adapted for any mitre saw stand
Please check out my video for a more comprehensive view of the build
