I sent this idea to Delta and never heard a word from them.
I’m a retired pipefitter and we used “tripod pipe stands” with a screw adjustment on top which made fitting up weld joints precise . Point being this would make it easier to set up a stand for outfeed/infeed without the hassel of trying to match the height of the saw table. They also do not slip like the ones I have in the shop made for woodworkers.(junk but pricey)
To me this would be a big money maker for some company. Any comments?

Sounds like something that’s already been done. I have three adjustable stands (two with rollers, and one with ball bearings) that I use when I’m cutting sheet goods, or long boards. They’re as solid as rocks.

Many companies also avoid unsolicited offers.

I know there are other stands out there but the “screw” adjustment on the top is the key. It is accurate and precise that I haven’t found in other stands. I too have roller tops and ball bearing tops and that part is fine. It’s the screw adjustment that’s missing.
