Hi All! New member here, but frequent reader of this forum; and a long-time hobbyist woodworker.

I just acquired a Craftsman 14” bandsaw (113.248340) from a friend…a good deal…FREE! I finally replaced my Delta 8” bench-top saw! The saw runs great. Still needs a few minor adjustments and a new belt, but there are two problems, or drawbacks, with the saw. 1.) the stock metal stand is a bit flimsy and I notice some minor vibration in the saw when it’s running, and 2.) the stock stand with the motor mounted on top and to the rear of the saw body takes up precious floor space. What I’d like to do is build a mobile cabinet base and mount the motor in the cabinet UNDER the saw. My question: is there any issue with relocating the motor that I may not be thinking of? Nothing would change (belt length or motor rotation). Seems like a no-brainer to me, but wanted to run it past some seasoned fellow-woodworkers.

Have your say...
