I just purchased a variable speed, deep cut Milwaukee Portable Band Saw for cutting metal. I know how it was intended to be used but would like to adapt this tool for cutting in a vertical position. I have seen the commercial horizontal cut off adapter but that isn't anything like what I need. I want to anchor the tool in an upright position and fit a small table around the blade to cut small ( less than 3") metal parts, guiding the part with my fingers. I do not have the room or the budget to buy a regular big metal cutting bandsaw. Does anyone know if such an adapter is produced or has been fabricated by anyone or am I on my own here?
If I am on my own, I would either start with my own new design or I might think about modifying the horizontal accessory to operate in the vertical position. I'd rather have someone tell me that there is a commercial product out there to do this. Any suggestions?
