Just finished this a little bit ago, for my bandsaw. Made using the free plans from Woodsmith. Was a quick, easy project.
The only problem I came across was that I do not have a 1 1/4” forstner bit for the handle, so I used a 1” spade bit to hog out the main hole, and then a 1 1/4” hole saw to enlarge it. Worked pretty well. The handle was a little sloppy, but putting the big hook through it took care of it, and I also put some glue in there, just to take up space.
It’s fun to drive when empty, and even more fun when my 250 lb boyfriend hops on and lets me take him for a test drive :)
Now…to get the saw ONTO the base! That’s a project for tomorrow, with the chain hoist and the steel I-beam in the basement :)
