Default Bandsaw modifications

While PMing Cutter the other night we came up with the idea of asking the members to post their ideas and pictures on the small import band saw modifications we all have had to do. Cutter tells me to get off me rear and take some pictures of the wire brush wheel that cleans my band saw blade just prior to it going over the drive wheel. I'll get it done later today, but have to admit that this wasn't a modification as it arrived fresh from the factory that way.

So how about posting ideas and pictures for another thread that can help each of us out. Any and all input is welcome. Sberry, you're even welcome to post your chop saw cutting station. Remember the more the merrier and we all can use fresh ideas.

Several shots of a factory blade cleaning wheel that should be any easy adaptation for the smaller band saws. The wire wheel cleans the blade just prior to the blade going over the drive wheel and ensures that the filings won't cause the blade's teeth to lose their set.

Hope that a few owners of the small band saws start posting fixes and modifications of their saws so that the other owners can see what is available as far as fixes.

Here are a couple of shots of another style band saw...Milwaukee portable and its bench hanger...

Shot of a conversion from a pipe stand to a stand to hold flat stock for cutting on the bandsaw. Regular pipe stand on the left and the conversion on the right.

All scrap parts to fit. The bolts capture the underside of the pipe rack. I was going to install pins, but the need never seemed to justify the time.

Nice job on the pipe rack modification. Maybe you could just install one pin and still be able to get it on and off. I am in need on one of those type of stands. I'm sure my wife gets tired of me sliding angle iron and tubing over the back of her lawn furniture when I have long pieces to cut.
