    Show Me Your Miter Saw/RAS Station!!!

    Let's see some pics of your miter saw or radial arm saw station!

    Did you build Norm's? Let's see it.

    Is it mobile? Did you incorporate other tools into it? Pics Please.

    How long is it? What type of fence are you using? Stop blocks?

    Looking for ideas here. Let's see what you got.

    Edit: If you already have a thread dedicated to yours, please post a link!

    I don't have one. That's why I'm looking for ideas.

    here's mine, but it is meant to be rough and tumble. Not what I'll wind up with in the long run. I'm thinking of either refitting my benches with a tool well, where I can drop my CMS in and have a clamp down fence for really long stuff, or building one like Nahm's. My mentor John had his SCMS set up in a Nahm style unit with dedicated fence, but that eats up a lot of wall space. (see attached photo in the Background you can see his setup.)

    I'll have to build Something, because I really like having the CMS for cutting to length.

    CMS

    It's a DeWalt 12 inch with an after market 90 tooth blade
    The left hand wing is a little longer than the right hand wing and was determined by the height off the floor
    Double 3-1/2 inch hinges on each side for the wings
    Back fence is 1-1/2 inches thick
    Two pieces of 3/4 conduit for the sliding dust box
    A separate 2 inch flex hose is attached to the saw dust port and feeds down through the 4 inch dust port - a portable vac swages itself up to the dust port

    Probably not what you are looking for but it suits my needs perfectly. This is the $89.95 Grizzly H7657 http://www.grizzly.com/products/h7657
    portable stand. With my limited space, I need to be able to move things around. The stand is rock steady, has adjustable support rollers and is just dandy in all respects.

    First picture is the TurboCAD file I used to design the sucker. The different colors are just to make it easer to see the features. I had some Naughhyde ( not a clue how to spell it.) so made a cowling around the saw for better suction.

    My Dewalt is on a Rigid MUV I got on sale at Home Depot for $99. It's really convenient as it folds down for easy storage when not in use.
