Wise Buys: Portable Mitersaw Stands

DeWalt DW723

DeWalt DW723

Editor test-drive:

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' 44s onto it and provides a stable platform during cuts.

I admired this stand at a local farm store, after it being in the store for about two years they put it on clearence. I bought it for $95 plus tax, it had the vise and everything. I love it I am partially disabled and I can still maneuver it. I would like to trade the single wheel for the new wo wheel set-up, but I use it like it is till I can find a set. I would recommend this stand to anyone.

Have had this stand for four years now, strong and steady. Would get this again in a heart beat. When you need to fold it up its a breeze and if you just need to move it around and don't want to fold it up, it moves with ease with the wheels.

I have a Craftsman version of this. It's very much like the Dewalt (and probably is in reality). It can be a bit of a chore to wrestle with but it works great. I couldn't do without it.

I want to hear a report about the stand that uses your foot to clamp something up!

It's a great stand, steady and reliable however it's not as easy as the notes indicate to move the saw in order to take advantage of the stops. I have the 12" compound mitre saw and it is a heavy beast; too heavy to move on a whim. The saw and stand are a great combination.
