Does the job, but with issues
on 26 November 2015
I have to say I'm surprised at the number of glowing 5 star reviews. This stand certainly does what it's supposed to do. The legs are very sturdy and the mechanism for clamping the saw to the runner bars is also good. Beyond that though I was disappointed with a couple of key things...
1. The extendable arms do not stay square when extended - they twist a little. This causes the support roller to hang at an angle, and therefore only support the work piece at the rear side and not across its whole width.
2. When used with an Evolution Rage 3 saw, it is not possible (unless I'm missing something!) to make 45 degree cuts, since the clamp mechanism obstructs the full rotation of the saw base. If I was using a different brand of saw I'd say that was forgiveable, but surely Evolution should have designed their own products to work together with full function.
The stand is sturdy and will certainly do the job. I'd recommend it but be aware of theses potential downsides.
