    Saw helper chop saw stand

    I'm looking to purchase a saw helper stand and fence system for my Kapex saw. I'm having trouble getting a hold of them. They have a recording but you can't leave messages. They are not returning emails. Anybody know anything about this company.

    Also what would be an alternative for a job site saw stand with extensions?

    Thanks Doug

    If they are that hard to reach when you are trying to buy something I would hate to see what happens if you need parts. I have the old style Ridgid MSUV and have been very happy with it. Here's a pic of Bart's with his planer on it (I couldn't find a good pic of mine).

    There are tons of choices out there from expensive down to no so expensive.
    Rockwell just announced a new one:
    http://www.woodcraft.com/Product/206...el-RK9000.aspx
    Has several accessories available also. Downside that I see is no wheels.
    I have a Grizzly (wat else? ) that was only $89.00. It is very stout and should meet most needs. Downside, the wheels are very small and difficult to use on all but paved surfaces.

    Have you looked on the jlc forums as there are a lot of people there who use the saw helper and I think the company posts there as well?
