Following on the popularity of their gravity-rise table saw stand, Bosch introduced a miter-saw-specific version at this year’s IBS last week. It looks pretty slick — espcially the way it folds down.
Like the table saw stand, the trick here is the way the stand directs the weight of the saw to help you fold the stand up and down. There are no pneumatic struts, but the way it moves makes it — or at least so Bosch claims — feel like there are. Look after the jump for a photo of it in the storage position.
It’s made of extruded aluminum, and the saw support rails expand to allow 16-feet of lateral material support — important if you’re using your miter for trim work, which I’ll bet many portable-miter-saw users are. In the upright position you can wheel the stand (with saw attached) around like a dolly on its 8″ pneumatic tires.
Again, this is a pretty early preview, so we’ll get back to you with pricing and other information as we receive it, but I’d guess that this is going to fall somewhere just North of the $180 street price the table saw stand commands right now.
