    Default Pook's 3 way bandsaw

    Abebehrmann gets to take full credit for this one, after he posted pics of his portable band saw I just had to have one! So after kissing up to the wife for a while she let me order one! I went with a dewalt DWK120, I wanted a corded one did not see the need for this to be battery operated.


    A few days after it arrived I was walking through the shop at work and came across this burnt out dewalt mitre saw, then it hit me, a mitre band saw! I was trying to think of a way to mount it to make straight cuts anyway and now I can do 45's and compound cuts!!!!


    So I stripped the mitre saw down and reversed the main hinge.


    And then came up with a way to mount the saw.



    Then finally mounted it to the base.


    I am going to have to find some aluminum to make a new rest because the band saw does not reach fully to the bed, but it makes nice straight cuts!

    Then I wanted to also do what Abe did and have a vertical band saw, I made the same mount for the saw, which was much easier now that I had the mitre saw! This mount I was able to mount into my welding table which conveniently had a big hole in the centre already!



    So now I have a mitre bandsaw, portable bandsaw and vertical bandsaw for only 500!

    Thanks Abe!!!!

    That's pretty good plan/design you got going there Dana... Just install a zip tie.. instant clamp!! LOL.. but yeah not as easy to release.. wonder if you might be able to find a locking cable clamp.. something like the Cable Clamp Pro style.. I know they have one that should be pretty close to the right size for your needs..
