Been using my aluminum portaband table for years. Cost was almost nothing, 2 pieces of scrap aluminum, and $1 worth of fasteners.

Don't cha think ?
I'm not sure why speed control is necessary for a saw designed to cut metal to begin with?

|tech69||nice. I got a dewalt last week and tried to copy a swag table but the only scrap I had was aluminum 1/8". It looks ok but not sturdy. I think I'm going to buy the swag table v3 so I can get the miter tracks and miter option. A foot pedal sounds nice too. You might want to get one. They're only around $15 at HF. Thanks for sharing your stand.|

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!|
