The Jointmaker single wing saw was purchased at the start of the year. Initially used with a work top stand with the idea that I could lower one of the adjustable height workbenches to use comfortably. Not a practical solution as 30 inches is just not a great height for any other workbench task and ideally the saw needed to be 28 inches at the low end of the inclining top. The saw has a small footprint so the stand is small but needed to be heavy as the saw benefits from being attached to a base that allows no lateral movement. Thus the clunky design. It’s heavy but sufficiently compact to move around. The design was also in part dictated from using what I had at home. This included the legs from my old workbench. Here it is with the saw mounted. The grooves hold the saw in place with no additional fasteners or clamps needed.
I also wound up making a fence- this one will likely be replaced by one incorporating improvements learned by using the saw. The saw on its own stand has made working with small pieces much safer and effective.
