I missed this original thread from about four months ago -
it's not that I can't keep up with the conversation ;) .
I laughed when I saw the picture. When I haven't been tripping
over it, I've been dodging one of these for over 25 years. The
particle board top had achieved the consistency of styrofoam,
so two weeks ago I stripped it down in preparation for the trash.
The color is B&D orange, but the name/logo HirsH is on the bottom
front horizontal crossbar. Clamps underneath the table held the
power tool by the tool's base plate. It came with a miter gauge that
rode in plastic slots and a blade guard.
I can't imagine that it could be sold today for safety reasons,
but way back when it was marginally effective once the blade was
aligned as best as possible. I remember it tilting back when using
a circular saw, and I think I stuck a jigsaw on it for a while.
Thanks for the memories.

I used a commercial variation of the homemade setup discussed on the rec, a
long time ago. I can't find the company name. Now it is a stand for my
little planer and my big homemade airfilter. I don't recall having had any
real problem with the setup, but my Craftsman tablesaw with modifications
(bought ca. 25 years ago) works easier.
