The frame has been giving me fits, but now I see the wooden parts includes the wheels, my first thought of home made welded stand is probably true. :)

Have never seen a kit for DIY band saw, but there use to be DIY kits in 30’s to 50’s for many other WW tools, on what was called a universal work bench with common drive motor on bottom shelf. Atlas,ToolCraft (Montgomery Ward), and Homecraft (Delta) were common brands of these components. Vintage machinery site has some ‘dirty paper’ publications on these tools.

Best Luck.
