SOURCE: 8 inch delta band saw that cant keep the band in place in use

The rubber bands on the metal wheels are called tires, and if they are cracked, they may very well be crowned and causing the problem with the band coming off.

To test, remove the back guide (as opposed to the side guides) on the top and bottom guide sets (above and below the table.). Put a blade on, and see if it will stay on. If it doesn't, replace the tires. If it does, reinstall the back guides and make sure they do not touch the back of the blade when the saw is running. There should by about 1/32" between the guide and the blade.

SOURCE: Saw blade jumpes off at motor pulley on horizontal band saw

It is probably not tracking. you need to back off the guides, get the blade to track in the center of the tire by hand. Then torque it up a bit till it twangs, Then pull the guides up the blade and just touch it, don't push it at all, the bearings too. This should track and not jump off. If it does, then one of your wheels is out of whack, check them with a straight edge with the blade set. See if they are in line. One of the bearings could be bad. Check it out.

Try replacing the belt on your band saw. Check and verify the pulleys are the right size and properly aligned.

Saw blade keeps coming off


check the blade pulley tires. and which wheel does it come off from. If the front you might have a loose axle or the pulley support might be bent. If from the rear again you might have a loose axle. there are sleeve bearings in the pulleys that might also be worn. There are other areas but this is the first place that I would look. Let me know if you need more assistance

I have an older 14 inch Delta, The blade runs on the outside of the pully's, I have tried adjusting the screw to the point the pulley rubs against the back of the machine, Replaced the tires also.


I had the same problem with a band saw I own (not a Delta) I removed the pulley and used a washer of the appropriat size to act as a spacer. It moved the pulley out for enough to stop the rubbing - not sure if this will work in your case.

I have an 80" blade


Hi,
I have the Craftsman model 113 80" saw and ran into the same type of problem here's what I did.

-Take off motor,loosen set screw on pulley and push pully as far as it will go towards motor,The pulley has a internal shoulder that will position the pulley the correct distance on the motor shaft.

- put motor back on saw (This next part is VERY important) the motor has 4 studs,3 of them have sleeves,these sleeves make it so that when they are tightened down the motor can stilll move(do not over tighten ). The forth stud is the one with the wing nut adjustment,the wing nut is how you adjust the tension.once you have your tension set you tighten the bolt on this stud and it holds the motor in place.

-Now with the motor in place ( no belt on yet) lay a flat ruler from the drive pulley to the pulley on the bottom wheel. most likely this pully will need to be adjusted in or out. These pulleys must line up perfectly with each other and over time one or the other has moved.

Take motor back off and put on belt. replace motor.

Note** you cannot eyeball the two pulleys a flat square or ruller must be used.

Since I aligned mine I have had zero problems and it runs alot smoother.

I hope this helps you out.

My band saw (craftsman 12" tilt head) stopped


Hello'
I have the exact same saw. It sounds like the key stock came out of the pulley attached to the lower wheel. I will give you a quick rundown.
-unplug saw
-you will have to lay the saw on its side so you can remove the motor and drive belt.
-there are 2 seperate pulleys , the one connected to the motor and the one connected to the bottom wheel.
-loosen motor nuts and remove motor, pay close attention when removing motor 3 of the 4 studs have sleeve like spacers.
-once motor and belt are out of the way check the pulley on the bottom wheel,my guess is that the key stock came out and the pulley spins freely.
-loosen set screw,replace keystock and tighten.
-NOTE the keystock may have came out of the motor pully instead,check.

Now this next part is real important.
-once you get it figured out and are ready to put everything back together the 2 pulleys must be perfectly lined up, use a flat ruler, using your eye will not work.line the drive pulley up with the lower pulley. ( the pulley on the motor has a shoulder on it so when it is pushed towards motor it will be set in the right spot) .

It is either the pulley on the motor or the wheel that has lost its keystock.

It should be a easy fix,Good luck

Reduce bandsaw speed to cut metal


My old delta has the transmission on the back for cutting metal, and it is geared way down for power, 1140 would be way to fast, It is more like 40 rpm. I don't know if even a set of step pulleys would slow you down enough. Depends on the metal. I have the step pulleys too, but never bother to change them. The transmission, you just pull out the lock in the center of the pulley and it throws it into back gears. real nice, has an oil filled gear box on the bottom. Everybody wants my band saw!

Help with my dw100 band saw


Pull the plug on the saw, take off the covers on the upper and lower wheels of the saw.

You will see an adjustment bolt above the upper wheel and below the lower wheel, with the band saw in place on both wheels turn the upper wheel by hand, if the band saw moves to either side of the wheel use the adjustment bolts to center the band saw.
