Adding mobility to any large, stationary tool increases its usefulness, because it won’t be tethered to a particular spot in the workshop. In this project, craftsman and maker Jimmy DiResta adds a wheeled base to his shop’s bandsaw so he can more easily place it to accommodate a project.
Bandsaws come in different sizes and configurations, so you’ll need to adjust your measurements and cuts to accommodate your unit and workspace. Likewise, if you’re thinking of putting other power tools on wheels, you can use this basic plan by modifying your dimensions accordingly.
Once you’ve built the bandsaw stand, you’ll definitely see the benefits and wonder why it took so long to do this in the first place.
