I'd highly suggest finding a stand for it if you plan on getting a decent bit of use out of it. I have an older version of this Ryobi stand and it works well for the $$.

It really is critical to have proper support on both sides of the work piece. You could get away with the workmate and a couple roller stands if you wanted to.

I built a separate stand for use in my shop, I can snap a pic of it later today if you're interested.

I recently bought that same Ryobi stand for my saw, after years and years of using my workmate as a saw stand. I can't believe I waited this long to get a real saw stand. You save so much time and your cuts will come out top notch.

Maybe one day. I'm thinking i'll have to let it piss me off a bit with the workmate before i run to the store for a stand....

On another note, for the dog lovers out there i had these two putz' running around in the garage with me last night, didn't have my cam or phone at the time but snapped a good one while happily sitting for my wife. Treat time!

dubber, these things go on sale for like 50 or 60% off fairly often and are decent for that price. I have used one for a bout a year, and picked up a second that's still in box for now.

The instructions are great, they look like they were drawn by a child, with a crayon... and then photocopied about 50 generations.

Thanks Man, I do have a Black and Decker Workmate which by the look of it is essentially the same thing. I used it with my father-in-laws mitre saw when i did laminate and bamboo flooring in my last house.

For like $15 or so, I was impressed enough to grab a second one. Too annoying having to work on an uneven surface with a few projects.

if you're going to stick with the workmate for the mitre saw get yourself something to support the work piece. I have one of these from Harbor freight and it works alright (pic is linked to one from Canadian tire).

Ainsley, I have one kind of like that too (was the other side of my "uneven work surface") and when painting trim my oafish brush strokes were enough to move the wood around on the bearings. In the correct application (like actually cutting trim pieces on the mitre saw) it was definitely helpful.

You're brave to swap tires already, but since your "summer" tires are all seasons (like me) it makes sense. Plus an excuse to use the new tools!

I like how your toybox keeps expanding.

I was begging for an excuse to try the new tools for sure. The primary reason to do it then was also to give me extra time in case it didn't work and i needed to go back to the winters, which happened haha. The wheels came with OEM rubber which rubbed on dips, that night after a day of driving i put the winters on and swapped rubber to these guys. These should be much better. And they look awesome to boot! These are actual summer tires and with the crazy temps we are having (-26 C with windchill this morning) i'm going to be waiting another week or so to swap them back on.
