Wise Buys: Portable Mitersaw Stands
Instead of wheels for portablity, the DW723 weighs just 40 lbs; light enough to carry -- if you remove the saw first. Fortunately, quick-release mounts make that easy to do. Flip the stand upside-down, press the spring-loaded catches, fold the legs neatly under the rail, and grab the handle to carry the stand to your next job.
The saw can be mounted anywhere along the rail, providing up to 8' of cut capacity to the flip-up stop on either of the work supports. And talk about reliable: I set the work supports level with my saw's table and they stayed at that height no matter how far I extended the arms. Cam locks make quick work of locking an arm in position.
Although light in weight, this stand works like a heavyweight. It doesn't flinch when throwing 8' 4×4s onto it and provides a stable platform during cuts.
