Topic tags/keywords: miter saw saw mount

I have a Ryobi compound miter saw. I got a great deal on a craftsman miter saw table at a yard sale. Of course the brackets on the table do not work with the Ryobi. Need ideas/directions/required material to rig a solution. For example, I thought of using brackets to mount plywood to the table and then mount the saw to the plywood – but I am not sure how to do that. The length between the bolt holes on the saw is about 15” and the length across the table is 7”. Hope these pictures help. Thanks!

Could you make an “adapter plate/skids”? My thought would be make a plate to mount the saw to and then mount the plate to the stand.

Seems like it would be pretty simple… mount the miter saw to a piece of plywood and then just use the existing clamps on the stand to secure it.


PS: I guess basically what beams said :)
