Editor's Review: 6 Great Miter-Saw Stands
review date: September 1, 2007
While not the lightest of rail-style stands, the Ryobi A18MS01 is one of the most compact. It is also very stable, with large push buttons that snap its stiff legs firmly into place. The crossbars that mount the saw to the stand are easy to operate, with quick-release locks that engage or disengage in one easy movement.
Like other quick-release saw mounts, the crossbars have feet, so the saw can be used on top of any flat surface if the full stand is not needed. The work-support uprights are wide, chrome-coated tubes with stops that slide up for repeat cuts or slide down to be out of the way. Even though the support arms flexed a bit when fully extended, the system remained stable.
For a simple stand that sets up quickly and stores in a compact space, the Ryobi doesn't need much improvement.
