The A18MS01 is just an older model and most of the components are unpainted steel, A18MS01G is the newest model and the you will notice the quick release mount is Ryobi green and all the metal components are actually painted there for giving the metal corrosion protection.
You can buy just the handles at Home Depot.

I made a base on mdf and bought different bolts to make it all fit correctly
Hi Scott, This RYOBI Universal Miter Saw QUICKSTAND A18MS01G is made for miter saws only. You will need a table saw stand for a table saw. I hope this helps and thanks for asking! - Eve
Hello Kmgetsm, thank you for your question. The RYOBI Universal Miter Saw QUICKSTAND does have universal table mounts. - Justin
Hello josh, thank you for your question. The RYOBI Universal Miter Saw QUICKSTAND only has the mounting brackets that are provided originally in box. If your saw is too large to mount directly to the mounts then you can mount the saw to a ply board and then mount that to the mounting clamps, as documented in the operations manual. - Justin
Hi Josh Thanks for your inquiry. Please contact your local Home Depot store for further assistance. Thanks for reaching out to us. Best Regards Thank you for contacting RYOBI
I live in Oregon. Everything will rust if left out in the rain here, so I wouldn't leave it out! The stand folds up and doesn't take up much room, so I'd find a place for it out of the rain.
I'd guess somewhere around 10 pounds. It is very light and easy to use. I can even move the stand with the miter saw still on it.
