« Part 4: Bandsaw storage Part 5 of More tools in the shop series Part 6: Designing a Parametric Pencil Box with Sliding Lid in Fusion 360 »

I have a wall behind my grizzly bandsaw and as I cut wood on it (primarily small pieces and such) the scraps fall behind the band saw and it is hard to reach to clean up the mess on the floor. So I built a box that attaches to the the back of the table. I drilled a hole on the cast iron (hopefully this is ok) and made a quick box from scrap pieces and attached at the outfeed of the band saw using piece of steel with holes drilled in it. I made sure the fence can still move back and forth. I am not sure if this will work if the table is tilted, but I am not worried because I rarely tilt my band saw table.

Now all my small scraps go into this box for easy cleanup.

Nice fix, I hate having to move mine out to clean also. Not that the band saw itself is hard to move just all the junk around it.
