Finally got around to actually sharing pictures of my HF bandsaw 'stand'. It's an aluminum plate fastened to a chunk of aluminum block which gets held in the vise. I added some extra parts and pieces to make up a so-so sort of adjustable stop. Works well and thought I'd share it for those who want a quick and dirty way of using the saw in this way. I made covers for the exposed blade for added safety.

You know, most of those hand held band saw conversion jobs scare the bejeezus out of me, but your simple solution looks like a convenient and useful tool. Good on you!

That is a neat adaptation of a portable bandsaw stand. That is as neat as my SWAG off road stand plus you are not tying up bench space
