First post here at LumberJock!

I have a 12” compound miter saw sitting on a Husky x-horse. I am in process of building a miter stand out of plywood. Until then I need some out-feed support.

I have a few tripods (I do photography, another expensive hobby).
I used 2 1/4”-20 insert nuts and screwed two pieces of scrap wood.
I read about people using this technique for homemade easel. It works as out feed support too.

One of the tripod is an older video tripod with a handcrank to adjust the height – which works best.

Pretty damn creative. All that matters is that it works for now.

Harbor Freight has outfeed support, adjustable, with roller for 15.99…if it gets serious I may get a pair. Until then it is “hack what you have at home” to finish the job.

Have your say...
