I’d like to see pics or links to your cart or those you have found here ore on the internet in general.
I have a new Dewalt DWE7491RS. I want to build a mobile cart from wood to slide under my garage work bench when not in use. Don’t need much for features just a folding outfeed support and at least one side wing. The rolling stand works OK but lacks outfeed support and I don’t like my current mickey mouse setup for that.

Forgive me asking you to do my dirty work. I’m normally savvy with net or forum searches. I’m having trouble with syntax to get plenty of yet usable search results.

I’m not a fan of the roller stands. I’ve grown to like the Ridgid flip top version. I has a much wider “sweet spot” that a roller stand when setting up the height of the stand in relation to the tool used. And when the roller isn’t setup perpendicular, 90°, to the blade it causes the material being pushed across it to ether pull away from or push into the rip fence. The flip-top doesn’t have that problem. That and the flip-top stand legs are much more stable and offer more ground clearance than the roller stands.

My portable job site saw is homemade. But for what it’s worth here’s a picture of it. This is my second generation version. I used extruded aluminum for my wings and a piece of metal stud on drawer slides for out feed support.

I’m not sure how you could adapt what I did to your store bought saw but I never underestimate the human brain or perseverance. Maybe you’ll get some ideas. Good Luck.

It is portable.
