Does this unit have a lighted switch to show if the power is on also some models have reset switch on or about motor or externally on the housing,check for loose wires with saw un plugged,if you have a meter check for contunity from the plug to switch then check across switch for proper operation,if all these things are fine then if you are comfortable with testing with a meter for ac voltage make sure meter is set on ac range of atleast 200 volts unless you have an auto ranging meter.Check to see if you have voltage going to the motor,if you do and you have checked both sides of the reset button depending on your skill level you may need to replace the motor,or you may need to take it to a repair center.

I hope some of this helps

best of luck

I have an old delta 14 bandsaw, ser no. 4-800. I think it is a model 890. What size tires do I need?


Hello,
Don't worry I had to ask the same question. you need 14" tires (i.e. 14 ) you will have to measure the width, it should be like a 7/8 or 1"

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


Here's an exploded diagram of your bandsaw.

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

In the Market for a better Band Saw


Everybody wants to resaw, but the only saw I've seen that will do it is a resaw, they are big, powerful machines. I have an old delta 14, with an aftermarket 1 hp motor, trying to resaw is a nightmare. I don't try anymore. Jet makes a big resaw, so does grizzly, both Taiwan machines, what isn't>? But they work. If you are lucky enough to find an old bandsaw with 36 inch wheels and a ten HP motor, that would be nice, you could resaw whole cars in that thing.!I The $300 special might be worth getting and customizing to work, You would need a big blade, about 1 inch min, and a bigger motor, say 2HP min, Then hope that the tracking system will take the heavy cuts. When I have to slice something , I do it first on the table saw, cut both sides, then run it through the band saw at its max cut, 6 1/2 inches, then plow it through the planer. Always a way around this stuff. Hope this helps.

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.

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.


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