  • 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..

                I have since made and attached a basket to my saw stand...





                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!

                          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.

                            Nice!

                            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.
