Dake band saw +1 efficiency

I have fabricobbled a rough prototype drip tray for the metal band saw… Emphasis on ROUGH. Apparently tig welding isnt as easy as it looks on youtube. Anyway, it is clamped to the side of the saw.

If anyone uses the saw in the next few days can you comment on how well the catch pan works? Is it too big? Too small? In the way?

Picture for attention

I’m fairly sure that liquid should be pointing at the bandsaw blade. It’s to keep it cool so it doesn’t overheat and dull the blade out

That was done intentionally for the picture to demonstrate the somewhat effectiveness of the pan. There was nothing being cut at the time of this photo
