DIY miter saw workbench
Simple but Highly Functional WORKBENCH with Table Saw and Miter Saw Stations
Saws from Metabo
A unique feature of Metabo miter saws is the ability to tilt and swivel the blade using a special adjuster. Cutting accuracy is ensured by a projection system that gives a shadow on the workpiece from the disc.

The most used model belongs to the Metabo KGS 305 model. The set comes with a 2 kW motor, quite convenient control of the adjusting levers. And the tilt angle reaches 47 degrees and rotates 60 degrees. The good quality of the tool is that it can cut efficiently and accurately, and also work even with a bar of 100 x 100 mm. This purchase will cost the buyer 26 thousand rubles.
DIY miter saw workbench. Table for a hand-held circular saw with your own hands. Patchwork Quilt DeWALT Miter Saw Table DIY
Miter saw table. The idea is quite original and I also adopted it. I will do something similar for myself, and not only for trimming, but also for a drilling machine.
So, the table is made of boards left over from old pallets. For me, plywood would have been easier to perform this way, but Vladimir settled on the boards (especially since they were “fitted” to him).
Boards are assembled into shields, and such a curbstone is assembled from the shields with the help of glue and self-tapping screws. The upper horizon deepens in it relative to the racks. It is advisable to make supports on wheels (I will do so))
This is done so that the working table of the miter saw installed on it (Bosh GCM 800 SJ) is flush with the edges of the table. We attach two “wings” to the side racks by means of piano hinges. Their length is the same as the height of the posts. When folded, they do not take up space.
In this photo you can see an emphasis fixed on the “wing”; it is a logical continuation of the standard trim stop. Fixed on a folding stand rigidly, motionless, on the other hand everything is exactly the same.
Now the photo is unfolded. The extensions are supported by a hinged stop, which is attached to the upright post. This is done for reasons of excluding support on the floor, since the latter is very uneven.
The working surface of the trimming has lengthened many times with the modest dimensions of the entire system when folded.
One of the most important tools that are used on the construction site and for some repair work is the miter saw, which is able to cut workpieces and material at any angle and any inclination. This possibility is provided by the existing turntable, the movable working part of the device and, accordingly, by the disc itself above the bed. Using it, you can cut wood, plastic, hardboard, OSB, laminate and other materials of not increased strength.
How to Build a DIY Mobile Miter Saw Stand
To choose the right tool, you should consult with a specialist who understands not only the order and way of performing work, but also miter saws with a broach.
In principle, the construction of the saw is simple and consists of a motor on a gearbox, a saw blade, a platform and a handle with a convenient location of the start button. The engine uses a collector motor, which has a greater number of revolutions, but requires periodic replacement of brushes. And asynchronous, which is quieter in operation, but at the same time more durable to use.
The transmission of torque for the disc is provided by a gear or belt transmission through a gearbox. To avoid slipping the product, use the first gear. When shifting to second gear, vibration is reduced and disc rotation is stabilized, which is more suitable for a long service life. The most reliable is direct transmission. which is used in some copies, but they are disadvantageously distinguished by low revolutions.
To turn a regular saw into an end machine, a broaching mechanism is built into it. With this option, the module itself is located in the structure on parallel rails. This design approach makes it possible to cut large-sized products.
For the bed, magnesium or aluminum is used, and the base itself is a rounded part, set at the desired angle and stop. And the kit also includes a cover to protect body parts from injury.
The basis and very important element of the design is the table. If you have the right tools and some knowledge, you can set up a miter saw table with your own hands. It has two sides that are attached to the rack. The neck fits exclusively on feed saws.
To measure the position when rotating the table, angular scales are located on the base. The rotation angle can be between 0 and 45 degrees. A special groove on the latches reliably fixes the rotary part and provides the most accurate fixation.
There are some tilt stand designs. But such a design requires more complexity and more nodes, which will lead to a greater likelihood of breakage. And the need for tilting is not so great and arises only when trimming some types of skirting boards and moldings.
Built-in clamps provide a secure fixation of workpieces on the table. And when using sufficiently long workpieces, retractable stands and stops are used, which are installed in the bed and expand the dimensions.
To block the mechanism for replacing the disc and, accordingly, to stop the engine, the device is equipped with a soft start. For safety reasons against electric breakdown through the case, the models are equipped with protection.
To adjust the cutting of metal products, electronic units are built in, which allow you to adjust the process depending on the properties of the material. Electronic components are also installed as a precautionary measure to ensure safety and prevent breakage from overheating, jamming, braking when the tangential load is exceeded. And it also allows you to more accurately cut the workpiece. Although usually saw models come without the listed units.
In order to be able to calculate the number of parts produced for a certain period in an exact quantity, newer models are released that have the option of setting the exact number of revolutions. Another useful but expensive feature in the machine is the laser guidance system for precision cutting. This system can operate both from the mains and from batteries. Its essence is simple and very suitable for beginners, as they see the line of the future cut, indicated by the laser beam. And beginners, if they have drawings, will be able to make a miter saw with a broach with their own hands.
In the process of this production, a large mass of sawdust and small parts from blanks remains. Some models have a built-in vacuum cleaner, which later saves time on cleaning and keeps the workplace always relatively clean.
The quality of the cut is affected by the disc with which it will be made. And you can distinguish between saw blades by the following criteria:
- configuration and geometry of teeth;
- outer diameter;
- landing hole.
The inner diameter in conventional configurations is 3 cm, and the outer diameter can be from 21 to 30 cm. This information is indicated on the side of the disc without fail. A large value of the outer diameter indicates that the load on each of the teeth during operation will be less. And this will lead to a longer operation of the disk. Also, the disc indicates its marking, the permissible maximum rotational speed and how compatible it is and with which tool.
Makita Miter Saws
In the ranking of the safest saws to handle and having a high-quality assembly, the Makita brand can be noted. In them, the traction allows you to choose the width of the cut. Provides the ability to make combined cuts, oblique and oblique. Of the professional versions of this brand, Makita LS-1216 can be distinguished. Thanks to double guides, this is the most optimal choice for working on plastic and wood, makes the most accurate cuts and the widest possible, up to 107 mm and 363 mm in width. These dimensions are the maximum for instruments of this class. The cost of the unit is around 45 thousand rubles.
This company has long secured its place in the world market as a manufacturer of quality and reliable items. over, the gradation of the target potential client can start from a simple amateur and reach professional companies that work with tools of this brand every day with full and maximum load. Their saws are equipped with a specialized circle, a self-adjusting angle of the bed. For durability, aluminum and magnesium alloys are used in the design of this brand.
The best budget option for a novice craftsman and just an amateur is Bosh PCM 7. This model can be easily fixed on the bed. It is equipped with a laser for an accurate cut, a small disc diameter, a 1.1 kW motor. And you can buy it for 11 thousand rubles.
Professionals can opt for the Bosh GCM 8 SJL Professional saw. Its design has a very large number of settings, which allows you to perform work of any complexity without damaging the surface or deforming the end of the cut. But she has no way to regulate the number of revolutions. But there is a dust collection system that will suit professionals. And the cost of such a unit will already be 32 thousand rubles.

Drawing up a diagram
Before you start preparing for building a table for a miter saw with your own hands, you need to decide what functions this tool should perform, and what additional functions may come in handy. Thus, a diagram of the device, its drawings and detailing is drawn up. And only then drawings of each detail are drawn up.
over, it is important to see an overall picture of the entire device, and not just a picture of each node.
