mitre saw bench

this is my saw bench that i drag out to the jobsite . its all alluminum . i used to build them in wood which cost about 50.00 for the wood . they sometimes get wet and the wood eventually gets tristed and warped , making your cuts slightly off . i decided to try this about 8 yrs ago , and have been quite pleased with it . its slightly heavier than the wood ones but i consider it worth it in the long haul

its all welded together except the fence which i used screws in case it ever got bent or out of alignment , that would make it very simple to change out

I assume that you didn’t walk dow to the nearest Big Blue or Big Orange and pick this up. Looks like it has done it’s job well.

Looks nice and sturdy. This looks nice enough to be a permanent fixture in a shop. I’m still dragging around a piece of 2×10 with some 2×4’s screwed to it. Fortunately I’m about through with it, because the weather changes have just about taken their toll. Thanks for the post, Trim.

Nice setup MrT, brings back memories to the time I had my own cabinet shop. About 19 yrs ago.

Yepper, that’s about the only way to overcome the wetness here in FL. I’ve thought of building a few jigs out of aluminum stock. I push my tools outside of my garage to work and this just makes a whole lot of sense.

Thanks again, MrTrim.

always,
J.C.
