Very nice. Can probably screw down or clamp a stop for repeatable cuts as well.

ohwoodeye: If you look closely, there is a board on the bottom shelf with some red “C” clamps sitting on it. That is what I use for repeat cuts. Simple, but it seems to work.

Steve,

I have seen design upon design for SCM saws. Mostly the designs eat up space and are generally complicated (sophisticated) in design. This idea of yours is refreshingly simple, and straightforward. It shouldl fit in my shop nicely.

I might not even need the platforms, as I have two adjustable roller bearers (from Axminster Power Tools, in UK.) These rollers just clamp to a bench at either side of the saw. It would make the ideal bench then for my shop. May I steal your idea?
Many Thanks.

Any chance of one more picture, one where you have everything folded into place for storage?

Just curious.

Woodwayze: Wow! What a great compliment. You are more than welcome to steal any aspect of the design that you wish. Let me know if there is anything that I can do to help.

Milo: What you see is what you get, it doesn’t fold for storage. The location where it sits in the photos is where it sits 99% of the time, so I didn’t have a need for a “storable” or “foldable” unit. It does happen to sit on a mobile base, so I can move it out of the way if necessary.

Thanks Steve.

Noted, and stored!

I’ll try to get some pics when I have it done. (Probably after I recover from knee surgery in April… But it’s only time!)
