I just complete my build of a Miter Saw Cart. I modified the plans from:
My miter saw is the Dewalt and it has a larger footprint than the Rigid which the plans used. I did not use the Kreg filp stops as I have found that there is just too much play in them for accurate repeat cuts. The Veritas flip stops are much better. More $$$’s but worth the precision. I also did not install the shelf per the plan, as my shop vac is the beast from Rigid and would only fit without the shelf. I do like getting the vacuum out of the way and on to a 4-wheel platform….. much easier to get it around even if the saw is on top. I still have one more modification to make. I discovered that the saw could not turn past 50 degrees before it ran into to low 1 1/2” ridge on the top. I can just cut it down in the front and I’ll have access to the full range of the saw’s capacity. Didn’t see this in my mental plan modifications. Still I’m real pleased with the results.

Nice build. I need to do something like that, rather than making cuts from the floor level.

I have the Woodpecker Flip Stops on my table saw sled and they are pretty good, but often they have a bit too much slop for me. I think I will have to get these Veritas Stops, they look promising. Thanks for the information.

I like it. I really need to to something like this. Currently working on the floor when I need to cut something. Also when weather it permitted I set up on saw horses outside the shop. I have a very small shop 164 sq ft. So I’m thinking something along these lines, with the flip up extension arms. But in addition to that I want it to have the ability to be a flip tool stand for another tool…...Any suggestion?

I’ve seen some good online designs for a flip top. I don’t think it would be difficult to incorporate the wings, as they are independent of the base unit.
