I’ve had this saw stored behind a bunch of things in my tool shed.

I hauled it out, & took some pictures of it today.

This is kind of handy, I can throw it in the back of my van, & wheel it all over the place.

I used this saw when I built my last deck at the cabin.

I incorporated the the factory saw extensions into the wooden table ends.

They slide into the wood, when I take it down for wheeling..

I used 5/4 birch for the table.

The steel frame is brazed together out of old overhead door runners.

The legs are 3/4” conduit.

Old lawn mower wheels.

Dick, I think you’ve inspired me to use my “rolling legs” from my newish table saw, that I want to take off of the rollers. It’s just not as nice a feature as I thought it would be. This is the perfect “excuse” to take that table saw off, and put on the “chop” saw.

Nice! I’ve been waffling back and forth over buying a miter saw, half of me says I can get along with what I’ve got, the other half says it’d be really cool to have something that could snap in to 45.000° exactly and wouldn’t require a calibration phase from me (for making mitered cabinet door frames). Given the extremely small size of my shop, that sort of portability is something I’m looking for cues and ideas for.

Those mobile carts sure are handy… you’ve done a great job on this. It looks pretty well put together, it’ll probably give you years of good use.

Couldn’t say much yesterday, could only get a couple words out of my keyboard. Lucky me my son has a dozen or so extra. Anyway Nice project. You’re getting as good as Gary coming up with ideas. Hi Barb. Man that looks like a nice place to sit and have a hot cup of joe.

Thanks Mike!

Sometimes when you never throw anything away, because it might come in handy some day, payed off with a saw stand.

I was wondering why you were so abrupt with your reply. I thought maybe you had to hurry back to your lathe :)

I drew quite a few plans for that deck area, in order to squeeze it in amongst the trees.
