I like straight cuts

I bought a used horizontal/vertical band saw.  These are the same units sold under many other brand names such as JET and Northern.  It cuts decent, but the stand that comes with it is a joke.  It’s flimsy sheet metal I can repurpose.

I welded some box steel and used the wheels, rubber stoppers, and shelf pan that came with the unit.  I made the height the same as my table saw for when I have long pieces that need to be cut and supported I use the table saw as a support.
