A good miter saw stand can change your world if you’re building a deck – especially if you build decks for a living.
Any construction project that involves lumber cuts, particularly when you’re working with longer, heavier stock, will put your methods and equipment to the test. Comfort and safety are a concern for most contractors, as are bad cuts and wasted materials.
You can avoid all of these problems, however, if you incorporate a miter saw stand into your jobsite setup.
The Challenges of Building Decks
If you think about it, not much goes into the construction of an outdoor deck that doesn’t first have to pass through a saw. The same goes for building patios, porches, stairs and railings.
Working onsite, you don’t have access to your usual shop setup. If you’re like most contractors, you either set up your cut station using sawhorses and plywood or, worse, you try making all your cuts from the ground.
This creates a back-breaking scenario that’s as unsafe as it is impractical. Ripping lumber in an unstable environment can lead to binding and kickbacks, putting you and your crew at risk for serious accidents.
A Miter Saw Stand Helps Make Quick Work of Deck Building
A miter saw stand will put you on the same level as your lumber, reducing pivot points and the risk for accidents. You’ll have less physical tension and fatigue too, which means you and your crew will be less prone to accidents and errors.
If you choose a chop saw stand with a built-in measuring system, you can also reduce measuring mistakes and the waste they cause. A saw table will also let you set up your jobsite quickly and efficiently, letting you get to work faster and with a greater level of organization.
For the purpose of deck-building (and any other projects where you’re working with long heavy stock, you will have to choose a stand that can handle your materials.
What Should You Look for in a Miter Saw Stand?
For a miter or chop saw stand that will best serve your needs, you’ll want it to be strong, flexible and portable. You’ll also want it to have certain built-in features – such as a measuring system and brake stop – otherwise you might as well throw some plywood on top of your sawhorses.
Your cut stand has to be strong and durable but also ergonomic, to help reduce some of the stress your body endures on the job. And, of course, any good miter saw table has to be versatile because no two projects are ever alike.
