How to Use portable band saw horizontal stand

Can a vertical bandsaw be used as a metal stand?

In order to get the full potential out of it, I built a metal stand so I can use it like a traditional vertical bandsaw. My stand is essentially a metal version of this wooden one made by Honus, coincidentally made to use with the same model of saw ( DeWalt DWM120 Portable Band Saw ).

What can you do with a portable band saw?

It really is just a small version of a regular band saw, with one huge advantage: you can move it around a lot more easily which lets you take it to the material if it can’t be moved to a regular band saw. A band saw is typically used for cutting metal or wood and you change the blade to suit the material.

Turn the machine on, ensuring that you keep your hands as free from the blade as possible and remember safety procedures.
