U88 Miter-Saw Stand Review
The Sawhelper Ultrafence's aluminum extrusions provide continuous work support and an integral fence designed to hold a self-adhering tape measure and adjustable flip stops
The Sawhelper Ultrafence has features that put it in a class by itself. Its aluminum extrusions are available in lengths of 50 in., 84 in., and 100 in. (the U88 comes with two extrusions of 84 in.), and they provide continuous work support and an integral fence designed to hold a self-adhering tape measure and adjustable flip stops. Each support locks onto the saw with special mounting hardware. Adjustable legs extend from the underside.
The saw mounts on a compact folding stand. There is no need to fasten the saw to the table because the work supports fasten directly to the saw. During initial setup, you align each support with the saw’s fence and table surface. This alignment is maintained every time you set up. No other system has this feature.
The precise work stops and measuring system are precise enough to eliminate the need to pull out a handheld tape for every cut. The continuous work support is especially nice for cutting shorter pieces and long, floppy pieces of plastic or medium-density fiberboard (MDF) trim. If finish work is mostly what you do, then this stand is definitely the best choice.
