  • Chop Saw Stand & Conveyor - Home Project

    Hey All,

    I built my own work/welding table which I already shared in this forum.
    I'm almost done my latest project, which is is a homemade pivoting chop saw stand with telescoping conveyor.

    The following photo is where I got my initial idea - the plans were posted on the Internet.

    I made several changes and improvements to suit my liking:
    - Wider/heavier frame
    - Swiveling platform for saw (instead of entire frame pivoting between arms and stand having to be specifically sized for saw)
    - Easily removable telescoping arms and narrower storage width
    - Tripod roller stands (allows independent use of stands without using extending arms)
    - Expanded steel lower shelf (not done yet)
    - Catch "basket" for when cutting small pieces
    - Adjustable fence for repetitive cuts (not done yet)

    What fun would this forum be without construction photos? So without further delay..

                Thanks for checking out my project.

                      LOL... yes, it's nice to have a large garage (even though it is my dad's). Though space is still at a premium so anything I build has to collapse for easy storage and space saving when not in use. As to how much it weighs? I have no clue since I am not man enough to lift it! Haha

                      Thanks to everyone for your praises - I hope to have it all cleaned up and the sharp corners smoothed soon so I can prime and paint it BLUE!

                      - Chad

                        Great project !
                        comes in handy for long tube projects.

                          Nice work, i just finished i chop saw stand for my hobby shop. it does not telescope. I have the room for a perement one. I also weld four to five days a week. After my real gob and on the weekends.

                          I have a question on the compact bender that you mentioned. I am looking for the specifications on what type of material in can handle. I have heard of these just do not know where to look for one at. Also is it a tool that if you broke it today would you order anoter tomorrow? Thanks for the answers in advance.

                            Really nice project and great pics...

                            I really need to make a stand for my saw too... I never pulled the trigger cause I was not sure I wanted to make one specifically for my abrasive saw since I'd like a cold saw...

                            Maybe flat top is a good idea, i can swap out my chop saw for lumber too!

                            Keep up the great work.
