    Chop Saw Stand & Conveyor - Home Project

    Hey All,

    I built my own work/welding table which I already shared in this forum.
    I'm almost done my latest project, which is is a homemade pivoting chop saw stand with telescoping conveyor.








    The following photo is where I got my initial idea - the plans were posted on the Internet.



    I made several changes and improvements to suit my liking:
    - Wider/heavier frame
    - Swiveling platform for saw (instead of entire frame pivoting between arms and stand having to be specifically sized for saw)
    - Easily removable telescoping arms and narrower storage width
    - Tripod roller stands (allows independent use of stands without using extending arms)
    - Expanded steel lower shelf (not done yet)
    - Catch "basket" for when cutting small pieces
    - Adjustable fence for repetitive cuts (not done yet)

    What fun would this forum be without construction photos? So without further delay..

    Chad,
    Great Job. If you had some plans, I would buy them from you. I can build one from what you have here, and with the answers you have provided for everybody, but ...............

    Looks great, I have eyeballed this before.
    Really like the compound angles.
    Now, where's that buddy of yours with the powdercoat oven?.

    Very excellent.

    Angles question

    Chad,
    First of all let me say that that is some impressive work. I'm very new to welding and do it as a hobby, so I have difficulty determining the degrees on my angled cuts. How do you do this? I noticed a speed square and a red arrow looking gadget, is this what you used?
    Your response is appreciated and once again good job

    Joe

    Great job Chad! I like the catch basket, mind if I use the idea? How do you like your DVI2? Almost bought one, got the 212 instead and kept my 140 for gates and stuff. Your welds and joinery are excellent! .030 or .035 wire?
    The catch basket works great and I encourage you to use the idea. I am thinking of adding a deflecting shield on the backside of it to prevent small cut metal pieces from occasionally whipping out the back. That way I don't have to run across the garage to retrieve the piece and it will keep whatever is behind the saw safe from "shrapnel" LOL

    I love my DVI2 although I rarely ever use it with 115V; It is a totally different machine on 230V and works a whole lot better.

    I am using .035 wire - Thanks for the compliment... I would like to think my welds are getting better with practice and each passing project. I have no formal MIG welding training although I did take an adult-ed class on SMAW. A buddy at my former job get me started with MIG and I just had to get a machine for home; I have been a metal fabricating fool ever since.

    Regards,
    Chad

    D*mn fine work Chad. I've been looking for ideas to build a chop saw stand for myself, and I think your design will fit the bill perfectly. Thanks for sharing with us.
