I use my Milwaukee band saw a lot , both in the stand and hand held. Instead of a zip tie I use a metal spring clamp, clamp on the handle above the trigger, then slide it down to get the speed I want, easy to take off.

Talk about Rube Goldbergh!!!! Hey WORKS right? Nuff said. LOL
[QUOTE=evintho;1542463]Found a cheap way to make a stationary bandsaw for cutting plates for brackets and such. Items required are a stick of 1" square tubing and a $2 garage sale 3-1/2" vise.
Fabbed up a base.
Made a support bar.
Mounted the vise.
Built the table structure.
Table top scrounged from dumpster at work. 1/8" steel.
Mounted the table top.
Chucked my 6230 in the vise and wahlah...........instant stationary bandsaw!
Now, it's not my idea. Gotta give credit to SWAG Offroad for coming up with the original.
SWAG V3.0 Portaband Table
Talk about Rube Goldbergh!!! Well, It WORKS! RIGHT? ok

|evintho||Thanks! The frame design is mine. I copied the outer dimensions off the original subframe (which was a rusty, rotted mess). I Z'd the front x-member 3" and kicked up the rear 13". The rear isn't a 4-link. A 4-link has 2 upper and 2 lower arms. My rear is just 2 trailing arms thats suspended w/coilovers and centered with a panhard bar.|

|barrnone50||looking good on the your frame! should be a roller soon. I know it takes a while but you can tell you have put a lot of thought into your build. Your frame design is yours or did you get dimenisons from other source? what you did with rear end look pretty clean,would that be considered a 4 link? thanks George|

Thanks man! The body is on hold right now. I've been concentrating on making it a roller. Got the front and rear suspension hung and most of an x-member built. Right now I'm working on mounting the '40 Ford pedal assembly and master cylinder. Sure is slow going!

|barrnone50||I like the band saw. But what about a update on the body Doctor? You did a great job on the 1/4s claiming to be a rooky hard to believe after seeing the completed 1/4s. Great job!|

It works great! It just sits on the floor in a corner and when I need it I slide it out and plug it in. I cut every piece of steel on my roadster frame with it along with a zillion brackets. I'm gonna use it tomorrow when I cut some 1/4" plate to make an adapter for my pedal assembly/master cylinder. I love this thing!

|machinee||That's really cool! How does your homemade band saw work? Tried making projects using it?|

Band saw stand.
I didn't use as much tube -angle iron for mine. No pict . I found that clamping in a vise on the bottom by the trigger will cause it to stick later on, I use a 1 inch wide squeezer spring clamp to hold the trigger on, bent to fit I have an upright tube up the back side and another bracket that clamps it near the top handle. the bottom just rests in a curved piece that matches the shape
