Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MikeLikesIt PortAMate Miter Saw Stand PM4000
I have wanted to get a miter saw stand but the cost kept me from buying one. After see this one and the price was right I decided to get the Port A Mate PM4000. It was easy to assemble and only took about 10 minutes to take out of the box and assemble. The only tool you need is wrench or socket to bolt the miter saw to the quick release attachment. It has a quick mount tool attachment that is really good. Once you bolt your miter saw to the quick mount tool attachment to the saw when your work is done for the day, all you have to do is press on the two quick release handles and the miter saw comes off the saw stand and you are ready to put the miter saw away. Press the four snap pin release for the four legs and you are ready to put it away. When you are ready to start the next job click the easy snap pin on the 4 leg out and put on the miter saw that was attached to the quick release handle and you are ready to go. It comes with 3 sets of different size bolt to connect the miter size to the quick release attachment. The unit is sturdy and doesn’t flex when you have the miter saw. At first the high seem higher than I used to. Once I started using it I actually like the high. I was using before two saw horses and plywood. The only negative thing would be a small tray when I could put my pencil, tape measure when I’m cutting the pieces of wood. Besides that, it’s a great product. You will not go wrong if you purchase. It comes with a one (1) year limited warranty

Having wanted a proper miter saw stand for many years, this Portamate Miter Saw Stand meets every single need I have for my saw and adds a couple great features to boot.
Assembly out of the box takes less than ten minutes. Unfold the attached legs and lock them in position with their spring pin lock. Each leg locks positively into place with no wiggle or play. That's important with a heavy saw and cuts being made all day. The saw attachment brackets snap lock onto the base with a sturdy 'click' and once you slide the material arms into their rails and screw in the adjustment knobs you're all set.
The stand itself is made from steel, all steel. It's painted with a nice gloss orange finish. No plastic parts on the legs, pins or rails to break off when you bear down on a project. The material arms and cross support beams are also made of metal and can hold the weight of any size material you'd be cutting on a miter saw.
The stand comes with all the necessary hardware to mount just about any miter saw on the market. They even include extra steel brackets to mount saws that may have a narrow bolting pattern on their base. Whatever size miter saw you're using, this stand can hold it.
Attaching my saw to the mounting brackets took about five minutes. The four included bolts were just the right size for the base my saw has. I didn't need the extra adjustment brackets, nor did I need to use the extra long bolts they also include for you.
My favorite feature of the stand is the detachable saw brackets that give you a separate stable base for the power tool when it's not on the stand. This adds a level of flexibility that is most welcome. Attaching the saw to the base with those brackets is a quick snap lock procedure and the large handles on the release make for quick work of disassembling. When they snap into place, you know the saw is secure.
The side material arms allow for an infinite range of width and height adjustments up to 113" wide to keep your cuts square with the surface of your saw. They clamp into place securely with medium sized threaded knobs.
On the job site you can have the stand unfolded and the saw snapped onto the stand in under a minute. It's that smooth and easy.
I have one tip, and that is to withdraw the material arms as far as the rails safely allow and mark that point with a black marker. This will keep you from pulling the arms out too far and having them fall out.
Everything about this stand exceeded my expectations. Rock solid assembly, huge material length and weight capacity, no wobble in the stand once set up and the ability to instantly detach the saw, and reattach whenever needed.
If you're looking to upgrade from the wobbly table and saw horse method of holding your miter saw, grab this stand today. You won't regret it.

Hi everybody. Read the reviews, liked what i read, ordered a Portamate, used it, and LOVED it!
It's utterly portable, light-weight and sturdy. i will say the three-point knobs for the outrigger supports are
a cheesey means to secure level cutting, but it does work with a little effort. i like the positive locking handles and the folding legs, which make setting up an absolute breeze. i can lift this stand, with one arm, above my head and i ain't no Hulk. All the parts you need to assemble, 30 to 45 minutes, and you're miter cutting. Excellent purchase for me, i'll say!

The Table was easy to assemble. It works well for my 12 inch sliding Miter saw. I especially like the pull out supports. Although they do not roll they work very well. I cut a few 2'x10' x12' yesterday and the supports were really a plus. The table is easy to fold and set up. I like how easily I can remove and replace the saw when breaking down the table to move to another location. The table doesn't have wheels but for the price it is a nice table and isn't very heavy to carry. I also have a 10 chop saw and am considering purchasing another one for it.

Purchased stand for new Ridged 10" chop saw which fits perfect. For the money spent on this stand it was well worth it. Folds up very easily, and sets up very fast.
