Milwaukee Porta-band to Vertical Band Saw Mounting Plate

Convert your Dewalt or Milwaukee Porta-band to a vertical band saw in seconds.

Use in the shop, on the job site, or weld to a 2" receiver for maximum versatility.

Bolts on to existing foot guard mounting screws.

Laser cut from 1/4" steel and formed on a press break.

Fits deep throat Porta-bands only.

$39.99

[B]For anyone who purchases a Portaband mount from me they can also purchase a 120V maintained foot switch. I have used daily in the shop for the past 10 months with out any complaints.


Just released.

Bolt on Portaband miter gauge attachment.

Accepts the industry standard 3/4' x 3/8' miter gauge slide, and can be bolted on the right of left hand side of either Portaband table I sell.

Helps keep your strait cuts strait and your miter cuts repeatable & consistent.

If you purchased a Portaband table from me in the past and your table does not have two mounting holes on the side your will need to drill (2) 3/8" holes, per side.

Take a look at the attached YouTube video.

Take a look at the picture below. The distance from the top guard mounting screw to the bottom screw is 3.21"

A non deep throat Milwaukee porta band is hard to come by, chances are its a deep throat.

This item does fit in a flat rate shipping box so shipping will not be a killer.

fuck yeah!!!!

the older shallow saws are very very easy to spot, they will ony cut about 1-1/2" deep and end cut only 1" L for any bigger diam.


edit: since you are making these plates how about the hook to turn it into a chop/cut off aswell?

x2 ... The only one they have on the market now is about $250 and uses a shitty locking chain thing as a vise.

I have spent an honest 40 hours designing, drawing, and prototyping a bolt on kit for the Portabands, that would allow you to use it as a chop saw and or a band saw. However there is just too much wander in the blade, it makes a great cut one time, then wonders the next time.

I will not sell a kit unless it can out perform the typical abrassive chop saw in a straight line cut
So what I am saying is, don't hold your breath waiting for me to create a kit.

Is the unit creating that blade wander, or your base? I assume since you have spent alot of time designing it and your other product looks top notch, that it's the unit.. But I just can't see the blade moving that much.
Anyway, if you do create one, I'm sure you'll have a billion orders.

Just got mine in the mail...fast delivery! I mounted up the portaband and man, that is a great, simple design. Nice job guys, well worth the $'s from what I can tell!

tomorrow I'll weld up the sq tube too, I definitely think it'll work better 90 degrees in the vice that way...

I ordered up one of these and I don't even have a porta-band I am bidding on one on Ebay though...fingers crossed.
No more cutting brackets with an angle grinder for me, It'll be nice to zip some out with this set-up.
