I have a DeWalt 705 and 723 stand. I like them both very well. They make for an excellent miter platform but they are not all that convenient to move or store.

A few months ago, I picked up a couple of Husky rolling storage boxes from Home Depot. They have two dados in the lid that can take 2×4s.

It’s a really simple system that is hugely portable. The saw has to be set at 45* to fit in the box but it leaves plenty of room for other stuff like extension cords, etc. I have another identical box for my little Rolair JC-10 air compressor so I can move the infeed rest to the other box and position it wherever I want for cutting long boards.

I have found this to be a good system for remote work where portability is important. I’m sharing it, in case someone finds value in this idea.

Looks like a good quick fix for job site transport and work. It’s better than some of my solutions over the years. My back however would complain now.

Have your say...
