At first I wanted my band saw table to function as a circle cutting jig so it had to be able to slide in the table channel to work properly. In the first photo you can see an adjustable strip with a series of holes for various diameter circles. The strip is in a dovetail slot. I realized that the sliding table could work well as a 90 degree and 45 degree saw with an easily removeable fence. This works very well for small parts.
Next I added an adjustable resaw fence, there are slots in the fence to allow for adjustment. I’ve found that a 1/2” wide resaw blade works well for all of these operations.

Useful mods to a often underutilized tool.
