This is what a stand needs to be: Lite, durable, functional and reasonably priced
Lite: Made of aircraft aluminum with 1 button collapsing and opening like a baby stroller.
Durable: welded joint construction like a track bike
functional: Large airless tires on the back (bottom) if in "hand truck" mode so an errant nail doesn't give you a flat, and slightly smaller lockable front steering tires when in "horse" mode. you should be able to push it against the back of your truck and have it collapse and slide like an ambulance gerny. There should be an integrated flip-up dry-erase story pole on the collapsable out feed arms. There should be quick release locking pins on all movable parts and it should have a screw hole pattern that universally fits most Miter saws.
Priced affordable: no more then $150
