« Part 5: Fitting the saw and hood Part 6 of SCMS stand w/ folding wings series Part 7: Secon wing done »

Here’s the wing in the up position…

and the down position…

I scavenged these leveling feet from an old desk and have been sitting on these odd ball T-nuts, with no barbs for ages. I secured them in the holes with epoxy.

I added a 1/4” wood facing under the particle board supports with a 1” hole drilled in it. This created a pocket that locks the support in place.

Love how the side folds down. Well done.

A miter saw station with only one wing can be dangerous….
It will only fly in a circle!!! ;^)

more to come….

the wing gets a fence and a pull out extension…

I’m waiting for Incra track from McFeely’s, and will use that on the fence for a fixed scale and a stop block.
