Modifications to a horizontal bandsaw
I am always trying to cut smaller parts than the vise on my bandsaw wants to hold comfortably so I built these attachments.
The first one is just a metal plate with a couple of threaded holes to allow a hold down clamp to grip smaller parts, the plate is then held in the bandsaw vise. The plate is actually sitting on top of the vise for this picture.
The lower blade guide already had threaded holes for what I’m guessing was a commercial table so the saw could be used in vertical mode. I cut a plate and drilled to match the current holes, works great for cutting down stock to layout lines prior to milling.
Nice mods. I like the table.
I did something similar to the plate with hold downs, but I put my small milling vise on it:
I like the depth stop you made, project number three for my bandsaw now, thank you.
