now build a stand
A few companies build stands, I made one for mine from 1 in sq tubing and some angle iron. The older ones with the sq aluminum stop is easier to attach a larger table. I haven't used my horizontle band saw since I got a chop say and the portaband.

portable band saw
I bought a Porter-Cable portaband last year from a pawn shop in Pinellas Park Fl. It was in the original box with all the papers.They wanted $125.but I bought it for $100. I am building a T-bucket,and the saw has been one of the most used tools in my garage.

Man you stole that thing. They are nearly $400 new. Maybe I should cruise through the pawn shops a bit more. Seems everytime I've shopped tools at a pawn shop, the greedy xxxxxxx's wanted nearly as much as the new price.Nolan

I had a few minutes to kill, so as I was driving nowhere wasting a bit of time I saw a pawn shop and stopped at it.
Walk in and glance around, nice tidy place, figure yup this will have 40 blue ray players, some guitars and lots of jewelry.
I dont take 3 steps and see a very nice deep throat Milwaukee PortaBand on the shelf with a tag of $129.
I take the saw up to the counter and wait a few minutes, clerk comes over and I offer $100 for it, the guys says no.
Then he says how about if I take $90 for it since you had to wait so long before I waited on you!
It also came with the storage case with 2 new blades in it.
Some days you just get lucky
