Transformation of the Week by:
I'm a weekend warrier and have an older Delta Miter saw with cast iron base. Typically I set up basic horses for molding and cutting work and use a range of things to get support for longer length lumber. Recently I took some playwood shelving removed from closets and riped it down to a 10" width and roughly 8' long. Using left over 2x4's I ripped them down in half to reduce weight and made a table that is hinged in the center and folds up for storage. For me this works fine, but would like to have a lighter version that folds up, tucks away easily and sets up just as easy. Also would like to have built in mounting brackers that lined up with the saw for quick attachment. I keep te surface painted white to use for making reference marks and also being that it is wood, I can screw a range of stops and guide into it. Having a sloted set up for that with flexibility in settings would be an improvement.
The most important thing for me is the right height and ablity to adjust to suit the terreign. On different types of grading makes for tough set up to get the saw to a decent level position. This would be an important improvemtn in the ultimate saw stand.
measure twice and measure again!
