    I have a model 113248322 bandsaw . when I turn it on the blade derails and the rubber on the top wheel comes out of the groove at least half it's width. It seems to still have elasticity and fits well in the wheel goooves. it will derail in 3 seconds

Uncle Vic says " If you want your 16" --3 wheel Delta saw { Cat # 28-560} to work, you must have patience.
It's old and has a bad reputation. They don't make it any more, and haven't in many years. The 2 wheel saws are better, but you don't have one; right?
If you want production from this saw, forget it. It must be coddled. If you haven't patience, just sell it quick and buy a better one.
I'm old and the saw and I can produce some good work if you are patient with us.
Here's what I did. I replaced the rubber drive-wheel covers- Lubricated all bearings-installed new blade guide blocks and CAREFULLY adjusted everything to it's centered position.
You cannot " Horse" this saw. If you are careful, you can get it to cut whatever you have the proper blades for. The cut radius is limited to the blade installed. Good luck

SOURCE: blade keeps derailing

I am not sure why you took the guides off in the first place,   That is definitely related to the problem but is it possible that taking those guides off created a deeper problem?

Over-tensioning the blade can and does cause the blade to "crawl" off.

Blade walks off the drive wheels


If the blade is walking off the wheels, the wheels are out of alignment with each other. This can be caused by loose screws that hold wheels on their pulley shaft, a worn or lose pulley shaft, worn or broken bearings, ect. Anything that holds or supports the wheels can be lose or worn to the point the wheels are out of alignment which affects the tracking of the blade.

D28770 dewalt does not turn the blade. Light works and switch works but not even a hum from the motor.


Check the brushes, if they are worn down to where they are not making good contact with the armature, the motor won't work.
If the brushes are OK you may have to have the armature tested to make sure it doesn't have a short in it.
