Long story shortened a little, I recently lost the use of my neighbor's Bosch SCMS. He kept it in my shop for 3 years before he ended up taking it back for a project and as I figured it has found it's permanent home in his basement. I missed that saw!! So I bought a new Jet SCMS and I'd been wanting to build a portable saw station for the miter saw and bought some plans from Plansnow.com. A few nights later I had the thing pretty much built. I bought some nice Rockler locking casters on sale and love how the thing rolls around the shop.


I bought a new Freud blade to replace the really bad blade that came on the saw and it works great. I'll have to write a review on the saw station plans and on the saw after a get a few more miles under my belt with it. So far so good!

I also bought a Kreg Crown Pro jig and have only used it once but it worked fine.

Thanks for looking.

Wow Jon, that is really, really nice !!!!

I'm in the process right now of converting an old kitchen cabinet into my chopsaw station, but it's not gonna come out anywhere near as useful or efficient as yours ..... :( :( :(

I look forward to your review of the plans and your use of the sawbench !!!

Great job !!!

Can't believe that no one has said it yet, so I guess I get to break the Ice :wink:







Dude, YOU SUCK!

That's a great saw and you've paired it with a great blade and built a Great station of it. I'd say you not only suck, but you suck in TRIPLICATE! :D :D :D

Well, no one else said it, so I will.......YOU SUCK!!! :D
Not only did you have use of someone elses saw for three years, now you got one sweet looking saw. I'm sure it will be a good one and see alot of use for years to come. 8)
You also did a bang-up job on the roll around stand! I have seen that "fold up wing" style before and it sure is handy when you are short on shop space like most of us are. :wink:
No matter how large you build your shop, you will use every square inch of it in a year and wish you had made it just a bit bigger. :lol: :lol:
