Buying a Miter Saw? Read this Pro Guide First

Our Pro Guide series continues now with a spotlight on miter saws. If the table saw is the cornerstone of the workshop and jobsite, then a miter saw might well be the keystone. It can make crosscuts, miters, and bevels in trim that locks everything in place, so to speak. Although table and miter saws share some […]

Metaltech Scaffoldbench Miter Saw Workbench Review

Having worked with literally thousands of tools over the years, not a lot truly surprises me. When the Metaltech Scaffoldbench arrived at the shop, it looked like any other “flat-pack” metal shelving system…until I opened it up. This Scaffold Bench is actually four products in one. Whether you need scaffolding, a storage rack, utility cart, or […]

DeWalt DWX726 Rolling Miter Saw Stand Review

DeWalt DWX726 Rolling Miter Saw Stand Review

While the thought of a “portable” miter saw is appealing, carrying one around by hand is not my favorite past-time. I’d rather use a dedicated miter saw stand. We’ve used a bunch of these over the years, and when DeWalt announced it had put out a new gas-assisted model, the DWX726, we thought we’d give it a try to see how they might have improved upon what was already on the market. First and foremost, the job of a good miter saw stand is to support the saw, while also providing a consistent feed and support for the work material. There are two basic types of miter saw stands, the compact fixed stand (with or without roller feeds) and the heavier-duty rolling stand that is made to be a more permanent yet portable solution. DeWalt has both, but the new DWX726 promises to be both robust and highly portable.
