  • New Stand for the Beaver Bandsaw and an Nice Shot of the Beaver Lodge

    the old 3300 is finally getting a suitable stand to replace the crappy tire special

    4 beaver cast iron legs, some plywood scraps, add some ash or oak around the edges, laminate the top and sides, make a couple of doors

    the stand is just screwed together right now, it'll get bolted up after the laminating is done

    it'll look just like the saw and jointer stands

    in the background is the bandsaw with its ct stand, scrollsaw, belt/disc sander and lathe behind the jointer

    Looking good.

    Where did you get the legs?

    Any plans for infeed/outfeed tables?

      the legs came some of the old beavers, they were available from beaver at that time
      ive got 4 sets of four, 3 short and 1 long set(on the scrollie)

      no infeed/outfeed at this time, no space!! and a parks planer coming too

      have to sell my ridgid tablesaw and dewalt planer first!!

        I'm lookin' at that table saw extension - need one of those for my 3200!

        Do you know if the tables for the 6201 will fit a 3200? (they look similar)

        (Cabinet for the bandsaw looks good too, btw.)

          i wish i had another, i dont know if the 6201 will fit or can be made to fit. tabledepth is the criticle issue and the height of the machined groove for the fence rods

            sides and back are laminated and reassembled, top is made, its just plywood with white ash edges, ready for laminate

            i'll be adding some reinforcement underneath later and have to figure out motor mounting, it can go under the saw or behind it on the top

            the laminate is a 30 by 96 inch sheet of postform grade(the 30 wide stuff is easier to handle), one sheet will do the entire stand at a cost of 45 bucks. im using a can of spray adhesive this time instead of latex contact cement

            if anybody wants pics on the laminating procedure, let me know, i have other pieces to do yet. i'll include my method of cutting up a large sheet of laminate in a small shop

              Re: New Stand for the Beaver Bandsaw and an Nice Shot of the Beaver Lodge

              the top and the bottom shelf are laminated and the stand is semi assembled

              the saw is in position, i decided to put the motor underneath again inside the cabinet, just have to cut a slot for the belt

              under the saw are two pieces of old bed frame angle iron bolted using the saw bolts to stiffen the top

              i did make the saw table larger a couple of years ago with some plywood, it can be seen in the first photo sort of. its bolted to the cast table using the existing fence rail bolt holes and countertop drawbolts. it too will be laminated to match and have the mitre guage slot cut in. the table extension was made the right size to accomadate a beaver tablesaw fence and rails, which i have

              the saw/stand will be top heavy as is, for heavy resawing i'll engineer a couple of folding extensions that will also reach the floor. ive got a couple of 6 foot walnut 4inch chunks i need to resaw badly

              next up is the motor mounting. since nobody seems to need the extra 3200 tablesaw motor bracket i have, i'll use it inside the cabinet somehow. an easily adjustable motor would be nice, then i can make the saw 2 speed for metal and wood cutting. the tablesaw motor mounting system can be adjusted easily for belt length and alignment, there is no room inside the bandsaw for two pulleys

              btw, the spray adhesive/contact cement is great stuff for laminating lots of smaller pieces, sticks like s**t to a blanket!! smellier than the latex, less smelly than solvent stuff, dires in seconds, odour in the shop disappears in a few hours, dead easy to apply

                stand looks good , but shouldn't the saw be closer to the right end of the table. I wouldn't want it that far away when working from the end.

                  That's a super stand, btw i realy like your bandsaw.

                  my method of cutting up a large sheet of laminate in a small shop
                  I have a 120 square feet place for work, so no place there for cut a 4x8 sheet except a mural saw. Tell me how you do your cut. We always learn from oder idea.

                    brian, the saw is mounted such that the edge of the extended table is even with the bench/cabinet top. the "footprint" of the saw is the same as the stand

                      i have a 3 by 7 foot assembly table, i spread the sheet out on that, then use a laminate trimmer to cut the sheet up using the table edges as a guide, clamping the sheet into position

                        powering up is done, i'll post a pic later when the batteries are charged

                        i glued and screwed a big thick chunk of plywood (3 layers of 5/8 laminated together) to the left inside of the cabinet with a carefully drilled hole to hold the sleeve from the tablesaw mounting system. inside that sleeve is the pivot rod from the ts and the motor bracket slides on to it

                        the motor is very ridgid in side and twisting motion but pivots up and down easily allowing speed changes and the mount can be adjusted easily for belt alignment

                        add a couple of side panels and doors to the front and its done

                        then reengineer the extended top a little bit to make it easier to flatten to the cast top, add the fence rails and the fence, we'll see if the tablesaw fence can be adjusted for blade drift easily

                        btw, if anybody wants the old ct stand, come and get it

                          a couple of pics, motor mounting and overall shot

                          the saw and stand does feel top heavy when rolling it around, i'll be making the bottom shelf a box and filling it with a bag of concrete

                          dont ask me why the motor bolts are so long!! the motor came like that, i'll just cut them off. the electrical system looks a little scary but is properly wired up, the switch will be mounted beside the door like the other cabinets

                          belt tensioning by gravity is not the best, the motor does recoil on startup so an adjustable tensioning bolt will be added some where(easy)

                          the table extension will get laminated and the beaver tablesaw fence added to it

                            the expanded top is complete. the top is the widest it can be without interfering with the tilt function and the correct depth for the beaver tablesaw fence/rails

                            the fence works perfectly and does have enough adjustment to counteract blade drift

                            i may cut out the mitre guage slot, i have a mg somewhere for it, never used it

                            on to making a couple of doors
