My miter saw stand is a modified gurney, I removed the mattress, replaced it with 3/4" plywood (the gurney provides lots of support for the plywood) and bolted down my mitre saw. As I pull the gurney out of my van the wheeled legs drop down and away I go, at the end of the day I pull a handle push the gurney into my van and the legs fold up. I built boxes on the plywood base of the gurney which provides support when cutting long stock, they also double as storage for my "bucket boss" and baskets filled with fasteners, power tools, cords etc. These items all have to be removed to use the saw, but it saves me a of of drudge work at the start and end of each work day. I get a lot of comments from fellow tradesman.
