Here is a pretty straitfoward way of making repeatable long cuts on a miter saw. It can be stowed away, and is ready to travel. It is simply an adjustable stop.

Nice. The hinged rollers (pic 3) seems also very useful. The idea of separating what supports the wood and what stops it from sliding is worth thinking about all around the shop. Thanks for sharing this nice jig.

Thanks yall, I was debating upgrading a table saw set up for these longer repeatable cuts, but decided on using the miter saw. The only change I would make is putting a bit more play in the lap joint for easu adjustment, and also mixing some orange in with the yellow to match the Dewalt better!
