I recently got a portable band saw for cutting metal.
In order to get the full potential out of it, I built a metal stand so I can use it like a traditional vertical bandsaw.
If you're looking to make a metal stand for your portable bandsaw, hopefully this will help you out. It's a great project to practice some welding as well as a bit of precision metalwork. Thanks for checking this out.
To begin, the top handle of the saw is removed. The plastic inserts are left in place as shown in the 2nd photo.
The handle mount is 3 3/16" across -- keep that in mind.
