7×12 bandsaw wheel upgrade.

I welded a new bottom frame for the bandsaw. The current design required physically lifting part of the 300 pound bandsaw to move it around. The new swivel casters are the locking type that will lock not only the wheel, but also the swivel portion.

I had recently purchased a use harbor freight chop saw. The power switch broke after a few chops. What a waste of money. I gave in and purchased the DeWalt chop saw. What a difference! I like this model because the angle and the position of the chop can be adjusted without tools.
