#1 How much space are you going to gain? #2 Vibration…you would get used to it. #3 For a free tool I would question the economics of trying to convert it to a standard type band-saw. Quite frankly I have never seen your saw design before…I m curious now.

It’s not so much that actual space gained, though in a small shop, every bit counts. It’s more of where this saw will need to nestled into when not in use, and the ease of pulling it out when needed. As far as economics, the saw cost me nothing. The belt needs to be replaced anyways, so I’ll most likely upgrade to a link belt…this will help with the vibration as well. I also need to build a mobile base for the saw, so that can just be designed/integrated into the custom cabinet base. My only real investment will only be my time. Thanks for you input, teejk02!
