What size a step pulley required for the motor ?

I have a wood/metal 14'' bandsaw made by CII
Model WA 14M. When I bought it had no motor and step pulley. It is a 3 speed.

The other sizes of the 4 postion pulley are 3, 3.5, 4.5'' . I am looking for the step pulley that fits on the motor. What size of step pulley is required to attached to motor which is 110V 1725 rpm..

How to install belt on rikon 10-325 bandsaw


For the high speed, (2950 ft/min), the belt should be installed on the rear pulley of both the motor and the wheel. For the low speed( 1445 ft/min), the belt should be installed on the front pulley of both the motor and wheel. To properly adjust the belt tension, turn hand wheel until there is 1/2" deflection in the "multi-vee" belt. Check this link to see the manual. http://www.highlandwoodworking.com/library/manuals/10325_manual.pdf
By the way, where do you get your band saw blades? I got mine from sawblade.com and I happy with them.

I'm looking at a 14" Rockwell bandsaw tha appears to have been made in the early 1980's. It is in good working condition. Any idea how much it is worth?


Tell ya what, I'll pick it up for free, no cost, honest! I'll..er..ah.. make it back on the scrap metal.... ;)
It depends of course but somewhere in the range $250 - $400 would be close to right.

I just purchased a used Rockwell bandsaw. I need


Ok so you understand that Rockwell became Delta, or was it the other way round?? Either case the best source of manuals for these much loved machines is over at Old Wood Working Machines:
http://www.owwm.com/mfgindex/detail.aspx?id=698&tab=3
You should find your model.. 14" Delta doesn't really pin it down too exactly. The model number should be on the warning plate.

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!

Manual,fence and rail


The manual doesn't seem to be available online at the moment. There's a parts diagram, if that's helpful, or perhaps you can find an alternate site that provides instruction manuals. See this link, in any event.
Otherwise, you might check Woodworker's supply (woodworker.com) for the accessory fence and rail. They carry genuine Delta parts, which should fit your old Rockwell, as well as some aftermarket fences and guides that will usually adapt easily to fit a 14" bandsaw. The 14" Rockwell is one of the industry standards, and many woodworker catalogs carry fences that will bolt on with a minimum of fuss.
I recommend you do a web search on "14" bandsaw fence", and browse the results. You may even find something used to suit your needs.
Good luck, and let us know if this solves your problem or we can provide any further information!

Manual for Rockwell 52-235 14'' bandsaw


I don't know how old that machine is, and I can't get any hits on the model number you gave, but have a look at this link and the other Delta/Rockwell bandsaw manuals available at the same site, and you may find something that you can use. Go to machine info>publication reprints>and choose either Delta or Rockwell, then you can filter the results by bandsaw and see what's available out there. To download, just click on the blue letters PDF under the publication preview picture.
