    yea, thats what I have in mind. Looks like he has put some nice thought into that.

    I saw another one time that was turned down 90 degrees at the end and held with a vice at the bend.

    Yep, that last one was it. That looks pretty easy, need to make a scrap yard run.

    Thanks for this post and link..... I think this is a better invention than the Milwaukee accessory for their saws. The Milwaukee brand is around $250.00!!!!

    Well, sounds like that would work. Just seen this post come back up.

    I never made the stand, not yet anyway. But its still in the back of my mind just waiting to get one of those round-to-its.
