Portamate, a brand of Affinity Tool Works, announced the launch of its new model PM-7500 deluxe miter saw stand in January. Product manager Todd Gluski says custom woodworkers will benefit from the size and portability of product.
“Work site space is always at a premium and this saw stand doesn’t take up much space while allowing the user to easily move the stand from site to site. In addition it takes up very little space in a workshop,” Gluski says.
Designed to roll to the jobsite and set up quickly, the miter saw stand and its universal machinery mounts can also be used with a benchtop planer or band saw, for example.
The aluminum stand measures 49” wide and expands to 8’ feet for cutting long moldings, siding or deck boards. It also features a four-outlet power strip, LED worklight and 32” working height.
It comes with 6” wheels, a storage compartment for pencils and other small items and two adjustable work supports that have fold-down rollers. The stand’s four legs fold up for storage and transport. It’s backed by a one-year limited warranty.
The PM-7500 is compatible with just about any type of saw on the market and retails for $259, according to the company.
Affinity acquired the Portamate brand from HTC Products Inc. in 2012.
