As above, that's the only drawback I've ever found with my Makita, the amount of space you need behind the saw.

It's usually lugged out onto the driveway, but it would be nice to use it in situ (against the wall).

I have seen a few other saws that have the rails fixed in position and the saw slides forward on them, but this does mean the rails are always over the table. Mike


Like the Kapex. Seems a good system to me with the rails high and out of the way. Surprised others haven't followed Festool example, saw can then be flat against the wall without having to spend extra for Bosch glide.

Hi,

I got the Metabo KGS 254 M...it was on a price drop on Amazon for about £200 when I got mine in 2016. As for the Aldi stand...it just appeared on one of their "specials" one day when I happened to be in so appols but I can't find a link. (Its good quality and was only £40..)

Ah right I am with you now thanks for the explanation and link Mike!

I do have a space in the garage ready for my purchase so space behind isn't too much of an issue, but for long boards I am going to have to move the saw forward anyway to be able to cut. It does sound appealing though as long as it doesn't get in the way of cutting the stock and as you say NazNomad it would be good to have it against the wall. Either way against the wall or not for longer boards I am going to need to move it further into the garage anyway.

No worries about the link if you have any other suggestions for a stand though I am all ears :) I have had a quick look at the saw and it does look nice so it will be one to consider so thanks for the recommendation :)

James

James, been in the same boat and just ordered the Bosch GCM3502542 230v 254mm 10in Double Bevel from Axminster, should arrive tomorrow. It was a close thing between the Bosch and the Makita, Makita looks good but looks to suffer from a few quality control issues, you either get a good one or not. Almost all my power tools are Makita so like the brand but the Bosch to me ( I hope) had the edge, although cost about £60 more.

If you have to keep moving the stand, I can't recommend this highly enough: https://www.ffx.co.uk/tools/product/Bos ... 0UQAvD_BwE it is one of the best things I have bought, the main thing is you can take it anywhere, in the garden or anywhere else for that matter, and it fits into the back of an estate car with the saw still attached.

Cool I will check that out but at a first glance it looks to be around £400.

Thanks MikeJhn that's looks interesting but I don't think it will fit where I have planned but no harm in measuring as I haven't measured anything yet I have just made a space for my new toy! lol

Thanks

James

Bit more then your budget but I know a few people have been waiting for Makitas new saw, it has fixed rails so fits back to the wall.

Thanks Doug71 it does look like a very nice saw but as you say out of my budget unfortunately. Still open to suggestions though feel free to keep them coming! I am also going through the other thread posted earlier on as and when I get a few minutes.

This looks like the same saw stand that I got from Aldis for £40 for my Metabo.

That is a good stand if you have it permanently set up, but if you lack room or have to move it or put it away after use its an absolute pain to find somewhere to store it, too big, will not stand up on its own folded, needs to lay flat, I have one of those and it gets very little use, prefer to get out the workmate and clamp the saw to that, but then its cheap.

....I leave the saw attached to the "brackets", collapse the legs of the stand to fold it flat, and store it under my workbench..only takes a minute or two...

There is no way I could get it under my workbench, with the saw attached its too tall, and too long to fit in between the legs of my bench, you must have a very long bench with no drawers or cupboards underneath, love to see a picture of it in place?

..sorry, you miss-understood. I take the saw off the stand and store it on a shelf under the bench, (but I leave the brackets attached to the saw). The stand then slides under the bench as its only about 9 inch tall when collapsed.
