My Saw Stand OR You get what you pay forcomments (3) October 11th, 2010 in Project Gallery
I went for the least expensive stand I could find back when and now regret it. I purchased a Central machinery Stand from a cheap outlet place and it looked good when I got it. However over time I have noticed the lack of quality in construction has effected how well it has held up and it has begun to give me problems. Bars have bent, bolts are stripping, and it no longer folds up very well. I guess I should have saved up my money and waited to buy something better but it got me by in some situations where it was better than not having a stand at all.
