It is an adequate miter saw stand. Solidly built and seems sturdy enough for the average user. It's certainly not "top end," but what did you expect for $99.99? Assembly was easy, until it came time to mount the miter saw to the brackets. The mounting bolts provided are about a quarter inch too short. I wouldn't normally complain about such a minor inconvenience, but I was mounting a Craftsman miter saw. You'd think Sears would know their own products well enough to provide the right bolts.
I've had this stand for a little over a year and have twice had the red plastic clamping lever break on me. It is made of cheap plastic that breaks very easily. Unfortunately could not find a more durable replacement, so had to replace the broken clamping bracket with the another flimsy one so that I could continue to use the stand. Craftsman needs to get rid of the cheap plastic and strengthen the clamping lever with a metal lever.
Stand seems sturdy, unfortunately it will not work with a Hitachi C12RSH. I was only able to fasten three of the four corners. One of the holes was offset, and would not line up. Support bar was to short.
had it put together in about 10 min and had the saw on in about 1 hr
would like to find hold down ***. to have extra
