  • SWAG Portaband Table with cart

    I bought the SWAG table because I had the wheeled cart idea in my head and because it was so easy to put together. I saw neat home brew ideas on websites that do exactly the same thing, but again, I liked how easy and fast the SWAG kit could be put together, and how easily it could be mounted on a wheeled cart.


    The tool is mostly for notching and making short straight cuts, you are limited to cutting a piece of steel an inch or so wide on long cuts due to the blades distance to the saw's motor.

    Great job on the cart build and paint, you should consider sending in a few pics for their customer gallery. Nice shop as well, is that a Jet drill/mill ?

      Thanks Ltbadd, I appreciate you comment. The drill mill Is a Rong FU 1 1/2 HP which I bought from ENCO back in the day, it's been a nice addition to the shop, for what I need a mill for anyway.

        Looks pretty nice. I've considered trying to make something similar.

        Question: How much of a hassle is it to detach the portaband to use it by hand? Do you need to "dedicate" a portaband to this purpose?

          Lookin' good, Tack! I have the same question as Helios--how hard is it to install/remove the saw?

            Guys the saw is held on by the screws you see in the table, the extra holes you see in the table are for different brands of saws.

            I've never taken the Milwaukee off, but I would assume it would be as effortless as mounting it to the table. I bought a 18 volt Dewalt bandsaw for hand cutting off bolts, pipe and such.

              I have the same swag table with my dewalt saw, it isn't difficult to remove/install (~3 minutes) but I wouldn't want to have to do it multiple times a day, but that's just me.

              The foot switch would be handy if you use it (the saw) alot, pretty sure you can get a less expensive one on amazon

                The foot switch is a good idea, I planed to put one on but got lazy.

                  I bought this 18 volt bandsaw for all my hacksaw work. Its lighter and much easier to cut with. I bought it when the 20 volt saws came out for a discounted price. It's never used that much to tell you how long the lithium battery lasts. but it cuts with the same speed as a 120 volt saw does with a fully charged battery.
