This video will show you how I built a new portable bandsaw table for my new Harbor Freight, Bauer Portable Bandsaw, stock number 63444. This table is fairly generic and not unlike so many others you’ll find on YouTube or this forum. The only big difference is I have provided FREE PLANS for this build with dimensions, so you can build one easily, without head scratching.
There are two drawings. The first shows all the pertinent dimensions and parts as assembled, with notes. The second drawing shows the clearance notches on the table for the Bauer Portable Bandsaw, with dimensions.
As usual with most of my designs, this configuration and dimensions used were driven by what I had on hand for materials in the shop, without having to go out and make additional purchases. I did purchase two screws locally though, as I needed longer ones to mount the saw to the table. I also needed flathead screws, so they could be countersunk. The two screws required were M5-0.8 x 20mm flatheads. They cost me a buck plus tax. The Krylon paint was purchased last year for only $1.49 from a local salvage store. The steel was left over from other projects. The bandsaw itself was purchased from a local HFT store for a hundred bucks, on sale with coupon.
I finished this bandsaw table just in time to help me fabricate my new block printing press design, so stay tuned for that build video, with free plans available!
