I've been wanting a bandsaw stand for a while and looked at many examples by others. I was inspired by the stands which worked both in the vertical and horizontal positions. This is my version for those features.

They are small to begin with, so enlarging would make them blur.

My metal cutting band saw is built on a stand and the saw swings from vertical to horizontal.  Cuts in horizontal only.  Would sure like to have one of those portable band saws though.

There are stands for the portables but the ones I saw cost as much as the saw. I have a similar saw to yours but you say yours does not cut in vertical position?  No "table" for vertical cuts?

My bandsaw is the most useful power tool in the garage. No smoke, no sparks and nice clean cuts.

The saw Dee has offers a lot of versatility. Well planned stand, and room for a laser light to guide blade

If you have a mouse wheel Hold down ctrl and roll the wheel away from you while the cursor is on the page. This will enlarge the page and there for the picture. Hold control and roll the wheel toward you to return to normal. There will be a percentage indicator in the address bar. Ctrl and + and  - signs on my computer work the same way.

Sorry for the small photos.  I take them with my phone, which is all I have.   Most browsers as mentioned above will enlarge the images, which does help.  Unfortunately, enlarging them does only make them somewhat blurry.

 

If there are questions for things which aren't clear,  I will try to answer.

 

I like the idea of a laser guide but not sure how to hook one in.

I considered making a table for my Milwaukee Portable Band Saw until I saw the one made by SWAG OFFROAD.  I realize it is not cheap, but I considered running around rounding up steel and cutting it with my Jig saw and decided my time was worth something.  I bought the mitre guide and foot switch.  What a nice setup.  Makes cutting steel a breeze.

Not sure why these forums can't get the pictures right.  It was correct when uploaded.

Can you set your phone to take higher resolution photos?  That should make them larger.
