I got these little leveling devices at work some time ago and ask the sales rep for some samples .
The device is made to be used for door jamb installation without using shims,you simply drill six 5/16” holes in the side jambs and drive these bolts with two part driver into the jamb and wall framing .
My thought was where else can I use these bolts and one application are the extension wings on my mobile mitre saw stand .
I thought i do a little demo how these bolts and tool work and it may give you some other ideas.

Drill holes in top layer 5/16” through layer and just mark hole centres in bottom layer with bit tip then drill 3/16” holes in bottom layer.
Install bolt devices with special tool ,tool drives both inner and outer parts of bolt at once.
Drive inner part of device/bolt into bottom layer and adjust as required.

Leveling and sloping as necessary

Excellent idea for mittersaw and drill press for angled cuts and holes.
