    Vertical saw attachment for my band saw

    Many of my homemade tools are just a couple of pieces of scrap tacked together to accomplish my task at hand
    This one is no exception a couple of years ago I was starting on my 49 chevy pickup rebuild when I noticed that I was going to need new cross-members and several other parts so Since I had to start somewhere I grabbed a couple pieces of scrap tacked them together and made an attachment for my WE Wells & sons 8x10 band saw
