    You guys might want to put an angle iron for a way to line up your material on a 90 degree to your bandsaw. Something to push on before rolling it in your saw.

    I've got to cut the bolt down plates off the rear legs of the Ellis saw and weld on some that face the sides. Anyone have a source for that funky paint they use? That's the biggest issue I have left - deciding what color to paint my roller table. Nothing seems to go with the Ellis paint color. What do you call that color anyway?

    Call Ellis, I’ll bet they’ll send you a pint! They are the nicest people to deal with!

    The Ellis guys arent always friendly on the phone. I had two 1600's(one month old) and one was cutting in on the down stroke a little and I called them about it. The guy on the phone told me the blade wasnt tight enough. I told him it was as tight as anyone could do(I'm 270 with 14.5" forearms) without a cheater on the handle. After a bit of checking with machinist squares we found the assembly that holds the front guide bearing was out square with the frame. About .040 of shims fixed it right up. It has cut square for 5 years now.

    I used some time off over the holidays to get most of the work done on the roller stand. The complete stand is 25' long with 8" I-beam skids for the base which makes the saw working hieght 36". The idea with the I-beam skids is to have the unit portable if I need to move it.

    I have 14' 6" from the blade to the left most roller and 12' 6" to the right. Where the saw sits right now, I can place a 24' piece of steel on the left side rollers and move it far enough to the right to cut it in half. Even with only 14' of rollers supporting a 24' piece, it works pretty good. It took some advanced planning to make sure the rollers lined up with the saw table, but it worked on the first try.

    I still need to make a stop block to fit in the unistrut, bolt down the saw and paint it, but other than that, its pretty well finished. I'll order the sticky back measuring tape for both sides but won't put it on until I get it painted. Still haven't figured out what color will go with the Ellis green paint.

    I think I'll use it for a few weeks to see if I want to make any changes like add a tray to lay a tape measure and pencil on, etc.

    Here is a close up of the skid with a "ski tip" on the end and some other photos. This should help if I ever need to pull it onto a trailer or drag it outside.

    The overhead chain hoist was a back saver while putting this thing together.
