SOURCE: delta bs100 bandsaw manual

I just downloaded that manual for free from the Delta Tools website. Just go there (www.deltaportercable.com), go to service/support, click the button/area to get a manual online, click the "Search for your owners manual now" part at the bottom of the page, when the Service Net page opens, enter your model # (BS100) under the "Need a Manual?" section at the bottom of the page and click "go". When the search function displays the single result, click on the underlined words "Instruction Manuals" in the "Manuals" column. Now just save the manual that is offered in .pdf format to your hard drive.

SOURCE: 14" Delta Bandsaw keeps tripping the internal motor breaker.

Hi,
The first thing that I would check is the wiring to the saw. My guess is that the wire to the saw or the cord is not heavy enough.
As saw like that can pull a lot of amps. Probably 15 or more when working hard. What happens is that when the amp draw goes up and the cord is too light, the voltage drops which increases the amps. and starts a vicious cycle...
The one thing that finally gives is the internal overload in your motor.

Try running heavier wire or a heavier extension cord if you are using one.
#12 wire or a 12 wire cord would be minimum, if running over say 50 feet then you should be looking at #10 wire.

I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

SOURCE: delta 28-185 bandsaw cuts crooked after 4

Sounds like your blade is getting hot, causing it to expand, causing it to be too loose. The blade gets hot when it's teeth are rubbing or scraping the material more than they are cutting. . You might see some improvement by increasing the blade tension and feeding the material a bit more aggressively. . But you will see greater improvement by using a blade with fewer teeth. For a given blade, the thicker the material is, the more teeth there are engaged in cutting at the same time, so each tooth gets a smaller share of your feeding force. . The optimum number of teeth that should be engaged in the cut at a time varies by the material, the style, quality and condition of the blade, and the rigidity of the saw---- but you can use 3 to 10 as a rough guide. . Good luck, and thanks for using FixYa. Al Kupchella

I need a manual for a delta 14 inch 28-207


Here's an exploded diagram of your bandsaw.
http://owwm.com/pubs/1141/2461.pdf
This exploded diagram should help with the parts list and how things lock together. Seems no-one readily has a more comprehensive manual available online. You might track one down behind an old workbench that hasn't moved in 50 years but it's unlikely to be digitised!

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.

My bandsaw will not always start. It will make a buzzing sound like the motor is trying to spin, but the blade doesn't move. I've sometimes spinned the lower wheel by hand quickly, and then turned it on,...


The problem you describe is common to capacitor start motors. It is the starting capacitor that is bad. (There are no diodes and Radio Shack will not have the part you need.)

The starting capacitor is under the small cylinder on the side opposite the electrical connections (Not inside the motor housing.)
My bandsaw has a capacitor with leads that go into the housing. If I had to replace it I would cut the leads right next to the capacitor leaving them as long as possible and splice them using wire nuts or put spade lugs or quick connects on them depending on the new cap. The important criteria for the cap is Voltage rating (probably 200volts if you are using 110vac) and Capacitance.
Graingers or McMaster-Carr would be a source.
Good Luck

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!
