Always looking for ways to create more room in small shop. Found portable bandsaw proved to be a good solution. I sold Craftsman 14" band saw. Slowest speed was 1600 fpm. To fast for any kind of metal.

Shop layout, bought metal portable band saw, center of layout (in red), pic 1.

Shop table builds.

I dunno about that saw table, Vern.
The guy seems proud of the fact that the indexing tab for it plugs 50% of the air intake for the motor.
Doesn't that worry you a little bit?

Default cut off saw

want a good cut off saw on the cheap? Get a pull through 10 in compound miter saw and use a abrasive blade on it. 10X better than a chop saw and takes up less space than a band saw. best of luck to ya.

Isn't it dangerous to run abrasive wheels at the RPM's those saws run?

Yes. And the saws aren't built to handle the dust/abrasive either. The motors will suck the scum and sparks in and it'll lead to early burnout. It'll work, but it ain't the best option.
