no previous part Part 1 of SCMS stand w/ folding wings series Part 2: Partitions »

Two years ago I found this article in FWW magazine and knew this was the sand I wanted to build. Since I have already built a hood and have my saw parked right next to my DC, I decided to modify the design and use the case to organize my cut offs.

Here’s the magazine plan…

And here’s my design modeled up in Solid Works…

I did all this two years ago, but it has just now made it to the top of my list.

Here I thought I was the great procrastinator!!!

I really do need to build me one of these.
I’m currently using a C’man portable miter saw station, which takes up waaaaaaay to much room.
I remember seeing this plan and thought it would be a great solution.

I’ll be following along….

Hi Matt:
I like the design. Would you mind giving me the date and year or the number on that issue of FWW magazine? I have to build a stand for my new 12” sliding miter saw. I will enjoy any other tips about the construction that you have found while building your stand. I hope you can help.
Thank you.

I built the FWW miter saw stand earlier this year, pretty much an exact copy of the one in the magazine. I have been disappointed in the dust collection, but I have not taken the time to improve the design for better results. I think your alteration is a good move. Your dust collection will likely be better.

I hear ya Jeff…. I think some of the newer Euro saws have good DC on the saw, with a funnel trap built in behind the blade, but the hook up on the blade guard set up on my old Milwaukee misses ~75% of what the saw spits out.

I built a hood out of wood and cardboard that connects to my DC and it works pretty well. So I’ll transfer that set up over to this new stand.
