You neeed to check the motor, capacitor, drive pulleys. Check thoroughly if there are loose set screws, loose
tires or sqealing bearings.
Change the belt out for a link-belt so you don't have any stiff areas causing a vibration when they hit the pulleys.
Poorly balance wheels or worn tires are another cause of excessive vibe.
The motor can be not effective anymore, you should get more powerful motor. Try to call Tech Support too.

SOURCE: 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.


I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

SOURCE: 14'' Sears craftsman bandsaw blade slips off, not much power

It sounds to me like the blade has stretched which the do in changing temperatures.
Try replacing the blade before you give up altogether. i was having the same problem with a Ryobi Blade would come off whenever i tried to cut a pice of 3 ply. I eventually replaced the blade and all ny troubles evaporated.

Slows down and stops when trying to cut hardwood


You just do not have a saw that has enough power, the blade is dull or both. Change your blade and push the wood through slower or get a more powerful saw for the hard woods.

How can I cut wood 3.5 inches thick with Dewalt Scroll saw?


nope... throat on scroll saw is of fixed height... beside, all scrollsaw blades are of fixed length, i would suggest use of bandsaw with very narrow blade with minimal kerf. do not use pressure on the blade! you will then have same cut through the thickness of the wood! setup bandsaw correctly, do not overtension it - see my other instructables pertaining to the bandsaw and regulation/setup of it

if you find my solution helpful - do not me shy... give some points... :-)

Tire comes off top wheel almost all the time. Tire comes off bottem wheel sometimes. Don't know how to set up this saw.


My jet bandsaw did same thing only fix was new tires .Tires are supposed to be tite on wheel .get wood dowels between tire and wheel and roll new tire onto wheel. If desperate could glue on with weather strip adhesive.put bandsaw blade on both tires spin wheels with power off till blade is running in center of wheel by adjusting top wheel in or out. When done adjust blade guides to blade and bearings to back of blade .This is top and bottom of cutting area

Bandsaw turns on for about 10 seconds, running at 1/4 speed and turns off. This happened after about 2 1/2 hours of use, cutting green wood. Capacitor covers were so hot you couldn't touch them.


There is likely a thermal switch on this saw which will reduce power or stop power all together to the machine. This keeps components from overheating and melting, like your capacitor. Let it cool off and try again. 2 1/2 hours is a long time for a machine to run on a job.

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!

Bandsaw stops cutting


the pressure you are pushing could be too hard or a dull blade. what is the HP of it? I use one for cutting metal bar up to 6 inch and wood. the HP of mine is 15 horsepower and wood will cut quick when solid steel is very slow. of course mine is industrial size with a 3 foot depth

Saw has no power.


Does the motor continue to run, but the arm stops? It sounds like the set screw on the motor shaft is loose. See the exploded view at this link. It's called out as # 97 http://www.dewaltservicenet.com/Products/DocumentView.aspx?productid=5682&typeId=3475&documentId=333
