Picked up and have been using a Harbor Freight Portable Bandsaw. Great piece of equipment. Decided that for some tasks moving the work piece is easier than horsing around the saw. Made a small fixture from scrap in about 20 minutes. I’m really happy with how it turned out and how effective it is. It’s small, light weight, easy to store, and easy to set up, only one clamp. I just need to make a replacement table. Im thinking a 1/4” x 8” diameter A36 steel plate. Maybe next week.

I am going to have to build this. I made a table for mine but I have been just putting it in a bench vise.

I def need a table like that! Is it 1/4”? or 3/16” and how did you secure it? Screws?

Thanks

It’s 3/16 and that’s plenty strong for what I use it for. I drilled and countersunk the screw holes and just screwed it in the 2 holes. I have cut up to 3/8 steel on it and did not notice the table flexing at all.

Bill – I just purchase one of these saws. I like the simplicity of your stand design. Can you share where you bought the double hook?

Thanks

Hi Mike,
It’s a double hook by Tornado 3” I think. I found it at Home Depot but I’m sure Lowe’s has something like it. I liked the vinyl covers that protect the bandsaq handle.
