I have an older (approx 12 years old) Dewalt stand. I don't believe they make it any more. It consists of a 6' long alum. extrusion with folding legs. On top of the extrusion slides the stop, material rest, and a phonelic coated plywood platform that the saw is attached to. I like it's portibility the main body of the stand with the legs folded up is 6 feet long and about 8 inches in dia. It is quite light, easy to set up and store in the truck. The material support and stop must be slid on from one end and tightened with a nylon tipped cap screw which is fitted with a nice plastic knob. It would be better if I could attach them without having to slide them on from the end and a lever rather than the somewhat slow screw as a tightning device would be better. The plywood platform stays attached to the saw whick makes an already heavy saw even heaver, it also must be slid on from the end and tightened down with a knob on the end of a cap screw. Soemthing lighter than the plywood platform that doesn't have to be slid on from the end would be better.
