I,m thinking of purchasing a Delta Kickstand mitre saw stand.Can any one give me any feedback on these or recommend any similar products?
got one and have used it for last two years with ridgid chop saw . however the new ridgid stand looks interesting . check around on price of delta got mine 100$ less than first place i looked.
I picked one up on clearance that was missing parts. I have a dewalt 12" csms mounted to it. After a couple of years, the only problem I have is warping of the wheels (most likely due to the upright storage and mounting position in the trailer).
Depends on what kind of material you'll be cutting. I run mostly trim and use a http://www.wolfcraft.com/display_product.cfm?cat=2&group=6 I purchased a couple of months ago. Folds up to about the size of a 4' long 6X8 and is easily transported with one hand. I use a couple of 2X4 supports under the extensions when running heavier material. I am very happy with this product. Its a very solid stand. I paid $140 CDN.
Its not a smile- its a cramp
That looks interesting, how tall is it?

I haven't got my tape and the rig is at work I'm guessing but I'd say 34"-36" high. The frame and legs are heavy gauge square tubing and fold out portable sawhorse style and lock into knock-down and fold up position with spring loaded pins, very quick, very solid. For the price, I was very suprised at how well it was made.
If it's 36", I'm up for one. I'm using 34" rugged buddies, a couple of inches taller would be mo better...
I've seen rugged buddies with a two-four, but what's a 34" rugged, Buddy?
I use them like this:
Sorry about the link, guess it made it too tiny<G>
You ain't gonna get all that stuff on the Wolfcraft, which is 36" tall by the way, but thats the sacrifice for portability. That rig you've got is serious heavy duty, very cool.
Tom, Welcome to Breaktime.
Been using one for years with a dewalt 12" miter on it.
Absolutely love it. Rolls like a wheelbarrel with just the one side broke down.
Up and down stairs, in and out of the van. Be careful with it and it'll last a long time.
I like the ease of the thing. Less movement moving it around and setting up. My model wasn't set up for a dewalt so I had to custom fit it. I like the ease of the roller extensions.
If I lost it I'd just go get another.
as far as portability, and ease of set up .there one of the best out there i have my 10" hitachi slider on it. my only enhancement i'd make on it is the wheels eventually will have to be replaced .because of the soft ,low density foam/rubber wheels but after 3 years of everyday use there holding up well. but still have my eye's open for golf cart wheels to eventually replace.... i'm pretty picky about my tools this is a good system...bear
I love mine. Got the Bosch slider on it now. It has held up good over the last few years. Definitly a good purchase.
