I've got mine supported pretty good. They don't shake or rattle when I run it. Ive got some sheet metal I'm going to cut and put on the front and back of the fenders to contain the blade if it should come apart. I'm going to put another piece from top of fender to top of fender. It just have to be good enough.

I did not put a blade gaurd on my mill.  Yours looks nice.  I only mentioned that I did not put a guard on mine so you know I am not the safety police.  I did wonder though if you had though about a belt gaurd on the motor back where you are working.  When I watched your vidio, Your reaching around to mess with the throttle made me thing that a gaurd back in your work area might be a good ideal.  Not bossy, just throwing it out there.
You mill looks nice.

No plans on a guard on the drive pulley. I was on the opposite side of where the pulley is. I was reaching over to up the throttle. I have cable I am installing to prevent having to do that in the future. My blade guard ain't nothing special but should help contain the blade should it break.

I put guards on everything... I seen to many Opps in my life... Many years ago I had an old man teaching me how to run a machine... He said what ever you do don't ever put your fingers under this shelf. The next day he lost one of his fingers under the shelf of that machine. Accidents happen when you'r not expediting it. Be safe...

Got all my parts in for my sawhead lift and lower redo. Don't like the current cable system I have in place. It's being replaced by acme thread.
