Some time back, I got an old (1979 model) metal cutting band saw. I've got a thread on it somewhere on here. It's a Central Machinery tool, such as HF sells today. I fine tuned it and it has done a fantastic job thus far. I've had a few things come up that I would have liked to use this for the cuts, but had to use the angle grinder instead. Today, I thought 'what the' and proceeded to make a table to use this thing vertically. I have an owners manual for a newer version and looked at how they made theirs. This would be a little more intricate. I had to first figure how to mount it, then work from that. Anyways, I got it going my way without help from mills and lathes. I didn't take pics right off as I wasn't sure I could make it work. But here is what I did take pics of.
This is my first test of how it would align to the saw blade. Very intricate angles here. The bolt for the blade alignment rollers was replaced with a stud. I 'massaged' a piece of 1/2" stock to fit down into the slot to keep it as square as I could.
As you can see, I have it pretty square to the blade, but just a little off. More 'massaging'! My 'mill' was the angle grinder with a 60 grit flap disc. Took several tries, but I got it better.
Here's the table material. Plan on a 6" X 6".
Got that cut out. Drilled a 5/8+" hole for the blade and cut a slot to slide it on.
Got it closer to plumb.
Tomorrow, I'll snoop through the bolt bins at Ace and find some countersunk fasteners for it.
