    One thing I like about the DeWalt stand is that it's rear leg is adjustable, this allows me to elevate the rear of the saw higher then the front, tilting my table towards me at an angle, I prefer this angle of sight to cut my projects, the stand is designed with this in mind and still gives the saw plenty of stability.

    My first saw was a Dremel 1680 and I used a stand with it also, but it didn't have this capibility, so I placed a 4x4 under the rear legs and achieved the desired angle I like.

    I don't currently have the room to mount my saw to my work bench, plus it's not at the right height any way.

      Yes, I think the stand is worth it. It makes it easier to sit at the saw and get up close and personal. I've found that it's most comfortable for me to sit slightly to the right of center, with my left foot placed on the bottom brace of the stand. Of course your mileage may vary.

        Yes, the stand is a valuable piece. It does tilt by adding the extension on the back leg.Leave the bolts loose, then set the saw on and begin tightening the stand from the saw base, and work your way down. You will be happy with it I'm sure. Check ebay for a stand and compare prices. Dale

            Hi . even though i don't have a Dewalt. i do have a stand on my saw. and it freed up space on my work tabale. you can put it anywhere. even out side. not only that. but you can bolt it to the flore. making it safer from thevfs. and more stabale. its hard to clamp a scrollsaw down on you tabale. at least thats been my experiants. you will injoy it more now with all the options that the ubove has given you. good luck and enjoy. your frined Evie

              Saw tuneups
              by Rolf
              I tend to be a bit scattered when it comes to projects, I get bored and move to something else mid stream. It seems to be getting worse with age,

              Any way I decided to tune up both of my saws, the EX 16 and my Hawk G4-26. I thought I had the EX perfectly square to the table until I cut...

              Great news. I know from personal experience getting the vaccine has been a great uplift to me. It gives a new hope that the worst is truly behind us. In the US we did not have a choice in most cases. You got whatever you got. My wife and I both had the Pfizer one and had minimal issues like: arm...

              Sometime back, there was some discussion about darkening oak. I have used the search and found something about fuming with ammonia, but I think there was another method using vinegar.
              I have a suspicion it may have been lost in the software change.
              Any guidance appreciated.
