Stowaway stock support tucks in tight spaces
I don’t have room for a dedicated bandsaw outfeed support, so this stowable roller is just the ticket. To make it, I sacrificed an adjustable roller stand by removing the stationary leg, and shortening one foot of the adjustable leg so it didn’t stick out from the bandsaw base. Then I mounted the stand on the bandsaw base with a continuous hinge. A lightweight chain between the bandsaw and the outfeed stand allows me to extend the support, or stow it against the bandsaw.
