    Portable bandsaw Mod

    Not strictly homemade but home modified. I added an addition table to my portable bandsaw that made it easier to use in vertical mode and added a mitre slot too. The bottom part of the guard was also filed away so a block could be fixed allowing me to easily clamp it in the vice. The block and new table are both small and unobtrusive so that I can store the saw away when not in use and also still using freehand without removing the mods, an important factor for me.
