Group,
I have a Makita sliding 10” miter saw. I love the saw but I currently have it mounted on the Black Friday Ryobi stand from Home Depot.

The saw tips to the rear a lot and it just doesn’t have a nice secure fit.

What stand do you guys recommend? I like the idea of portable especially as I build my deck and want to bring it in and out of the garage.

I got a rigid awhile back. Only because it was offered for $99 which was signficantly lower than it’s usual price. It turns out that it’s a pretty nice unit. I’ve used it with my 10” dewalt and my 12 Bosch sliding/compound. Love the way it sets up with one hand and a foot and the big wheels.
I can’t speak for any other brands. I’m sure there are some nice ones out there though

+1 for the Rigid MSUV, I had one of the $99 specials with the grey tool clearance and after the basment was finished and I moved the MS back to the shop I sold it off for what I paid. I know that the recent one is slightly different, but it seems comparable to the Dewalt one which lets you keep the saw in place while transporting and the stand has wheels to aid transport.

-- I've decided 1 mistake is really 2 opportunities to learn.. learn how to fix it... and learn how to not repeat it

I had the Ryobi stand for a while and it works and is stable, but breaking it down and moving it was a pain. I now have a folding stand (Delta I think, similar to the Ridgid folding wheeled stands) that the saw stays attached to and can easily be wheeled around. Is it perfect, no. But it is better, it takes up more space to store, but does make it easy to get it out of the way. It’s wobbles a little, but enough that it’s a issue.

For your deck project, a folding wheeled stand should speed up set-up and break down.

I had a big DeWalt that was useful and the extensions went out pretty far. The stops stank for precision cutting but I imagine most of them do, being built for carpenter tolerances.

Have your say...
