I was planning to add a hinging mechanism (still might) to use as a cut-off bandsaw for metal bar and tube stock. For now, the bandsaw and small wooden table sets up fairly easy on the bench vice. A small cleat on the bottom of the 5-1/2″ x 11-1/2″ table slips into my shop bench vice and hold the bandsaw in a vertical position.
One of the negatives of this well made but inexpensive Chicago Tool bandasw is that the trigger doesn’t have a lock … so I used a wire clip to hold it in the “on” position. So far so good … and the variable speed setting is great.
