      yea, thats what I have in mind. Looks like he has put some nice thought into that.

      I saw another one time that was turned down 90 degrees at the end and held with a vice at the bend.

            Thanks for this post and link..... I think this is a better invention than the Milwaukee accessory for their saws. The Milwaukee brand is around $250.00!!!!

                    Well, sounds like that would work. Just seen this post come back up.

                    I never made the stand, not yet anyway. But its still in the back of my mind just waiting to get one of those round-to-its.

                      Finally got a round to it!

                      Found some 1/2" aluminum plate. Used a little preheat for my 200 amp and it went well. The weight was 50lbs and saw, just checking to make sure it wouldn't drop my saw in the floor.

                      Also welded a tab towards the back to get the blade more in the center.

                            I bought one of these years ago. It is specific to the Porta Band. It uses 3/4" pipe for legs. I don't know who sells them.

                              I like all the bandsaw designs, but I chose to mount mine using some of the factory bolt holes and that way I could mount my plate with the slit to the front so I don't have to dismantle the bandsaw to change the blade. It is a real practical thing for me because I cut alot of staniless steel so I go thru blades pretty often.
