Gravity-Rise™ Miter Saw Stand
Product Review (submitted on September 21, 2009):
Works great, easily folds for transporting the saw around. I have a 12" Milwaukee dual bevel with the digital degree gauge. Kind of heavier of a miter saw mounted. With the gravity rise all that means is pushing DOWN harder on the handle to bring the saw up. Really a neat way to make a saw stand. Rolls easily with the two wheels as far apart as they are. Only drawback is the sliding extensions twist or cant some the further out you go. One side goes one way and the other side goes the opposite way. That is because instead of having the support rods mounted the same height they have one about 2" higher than the other. I imagine so it is easier to manufacture instead of having specific right and left sides. Each side moves out almost as long as the main tables width. The support tubes nest inside of it so each side has a tube on top and each one has one on bottom. Hope that kind of explains it well enough. Not to bad but you have to hold down the piece to make sure they sit flat on the miter saw. The longer and heavier the piece the more it will cant or tilt obviously. Very easy to take the saw off as well, just push two safety buttons and pull out the red levers and all you have to do is pull the saw off. Just the brackets stay with the saw but they have rubber bumpers on the bottom to protect whatever you place the saw on. It took maybe an hour for me to put the stand together but that was because I lubed every pivot and took my time getting the saw perfect on the brackets. I roll mine through a door in the side of the garage everytime I want to cut anything and it takes about 10 seconds to set the stand up. And another couple seconds to straighten the saw to 90 and get the blade raised up. The one pictured is slightly different than mine as the one I have has another bracket on the left foot going to the main frame with an adjustable locking friction lever.
