Gosforth Handyman Verdict: (5 / 5)
Today I’m having a quick look at an Evolution mitre saw stand. This is the 800B model -- you can watch the unboxing vid to see what it’s all about and read what I think of it below.

Evolution Mitre Saw Stand Review
Straight out of the box this feels like a sturdy piece of kit -- robust steel tubular legs and it comes with two steel quick release brackets for attaching on to just about any mitre saw. It comes with a selection of screws and bolts but you may need your own depending on the saw you’re using. The legs on the stand itself simply ‘click’ in to position with spring loaded catches (watch your fingers!) for simple portability. The end supports are adjustable for height and length using plastic adjustment knobs -- very easy to put together. The supports were perfectly accurate and the chrome support rollers are a nice touch.
I tried the stand with both the little Evolution R210 CMS Mitre Saw and with the huge Rage-3DB saw. Both worked like a charm and the stand supported the bigger saw with no problems. The quick release handles make saw removal a piece of cake.
Another nice little feature is the black support tube / bracket half way along the top of the stand -- not sure if it’s intentional or not but this seems to work great as a carrying handle both for when the stand is fully assembled and when it’s folded up.
I did have one minor issue where a circlip flew off one of the spring loaded leg locking pins. It could be that it had just been knocked loose in transport. It’s never happened again since.
I regularly take this stand out to jobs and have found it works amazingly well. I keep it hung on large hooks on the workshop wall when it’s not in use. Fantastic piece of kit for the money!
