Wellsaw 58B bandsaw table
 
Hey guys. I recently purchased an original model 58B that didn't have the table with it. I can get a new one from Wellsaw for $130 but if I can build one for $30 in material, why would I buy one?

What I'm wondering is if anyone on here has a table and would be willing to measure it for me?

Thanks

No help on the saw. Welcome to the pile.:)

I'm not clear on what you're calling the "table". Isn't it the main frame of the saw? If that's the case you've only got half a saw. A new factory part will have all the slots and holes required to put everything together. It will look like it's a part of the saw and will undoubtedly increase the value.

Yup, gonna need some pix to clarify things.

I looked your saw up and it appears to be like most horizontal saws. I did see several Ebay listings that called it a vertical/horizontal bandsaw which implies you can set it up to cut vertically with an added table. None of the ads that label it as a vertical saw, have any pics of it set up in the vertical configuration though :confused:

almost all of these saws can be used as a vertical bandsaw but the table is very small and has no tilt capacity. it is possible to make a larger table but to use the saw as designed you need to use the supplied table because the larger table interferes with the drop action.

Is this your saw in vertical position?

I have a 7x12 "Enco" (Taiwan) that came with a vertical "table". Somewhat flimsy, I've NEVER used it. I don't even know where it is--haven't laid eyes on it in 15 years. ;)

Thanks for the feedback. This is a pic of a new version of my saw. It's a horizontal band saw that stands up vertical and can be used as a table band saw.
Obviously it's a makeshift table but they have been doing it for over 50 years so, I'm guessing it's works good enough to be useful.

Hey Tim, yes that looks like my saw. Mine is in a little bit rougher shape but those are the right colors.
Good find.
