      John - As the picture painted itself down my screen, I spotted the jack screw and thought, "I bet that's not the tip, but what a great idea!" Then the vee blocks appeared, confirming my guess, then the text displaying the full measure of your genius.

      My little JET hor/vert bandsaw has its vise disappointingly far from the blade, so I've drilled holes for hold down clamps in the table and made an insert for the slot beneath the blade to provide support under small workpieces.

      I like to remove as much metal as possible with the saw before letting my mill/drill chew on a piece.

      Thanks for the tips! My vise will soon be drilled and tapped for a jack screw.

        Great, simple idea. My beater import saw sees an upgrade in the future. Thanks

          John,I drilled and tapped a hole in the bed of my saw so that I can use my mill table hold-downs to secure odd shaped objects. I also have the screw and knob which is very handy.

                  This is my remedy for making angled cuts in the bandsaw without moving the stationary vice jaw and spending a lot of time lining up the cut and then realigning to 90آ؛. It is quick, and is marked for 45آ؛,22آ½آ؛ and 30آ؛ on the radiused locking arm. If you do any odd cuts frequently,just mark it when you get it set. Just set it drop over the stationary jaw, tighten the vice and cut. The pictures are pretty self explanitory.

                      I liked the angle setter,but I also liked the rollers to. I use one roller on a stand. I will check to see if your idea will work on my saw.
