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.


I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Rockwell/Delta 20" bandsaw. Locked


This site has the best collection of online manuals for older Delta machines. Have a look through the list and see if you can't find one of similar vintage. Hint; if you click on the pub type heading the list will sort by machine type. Also confirm that model number is correct. There are manuals for the 28-340 that may provide the needed information. I'm afraid I'm not familiar enough with that saw to suggest a solution to the low/high speed issue.If you are running on the correct pulley positions, and they pulleys are corectly aligned, the belt tension adjusted, and the motor in good shape, I don't understand what the obstruction could be. Perhaps you neglected to adjust the belt tension when changing positions? See the guide suggested above for more on that.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

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!

Rubber on wheels is shot. Where can I get new rubber?


Here are a few links to new tires for your bandsaw, available here and here and here. If you google "bandsaw tires", you'll find they are pretty widely available and may be able to come up with a better price...

Manual or info on a rockwell 28380 14" band saw


I can't find one for the exact model number you have, but there are a lot of manuals for the same era bandsaws available as PDF downloads at this site. Perhaps another manual for a similar machine will help answer most of your questions, in lieu of the correct one...
Have a look around there, though, at both the Delta and Rockwell listings, as I just made a quick look to find yours and there might be something there somewhere.

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!
