I really like the Milwaukee variable-speed, deep-cut, portable band saw. It is very flexible for cutting metal wherever you need it. Sometimes, however, I wish I could just use it as a vertical band saw. That is why I created this bracket. I have plans for a 'fancy' base for this saw eventually, but this bracket meets the need for now and it didn't take very long to build. The aluminum table I fabbed up is definitely still in the 'prototype' phase...
I was originally going to drill three holes into my regular workbench to mount this bracket, but decided I liked the height and flexibility of mounting it in my folding work table.
I use the Harbor Freight foot switches with this saw in the vertical configuration. You see it on the table here, but I usually leave it on the ground. I keep the power switch depressed with a Velcro strap, like you use to bundle cables. HF has two different switches, the momentary and the latching. I usually use the latching in with this saw, so one tap of the foot switch turns the saw on and one turns it off.
