You have to loosen the nuts behind the knife blocks before those allen screws will be able to raise or lower the height. They are only meant as a fine adjustment for dialing in the height. (So the tip of the knife at the highest arc of the cutterhead revolution is in line with the height of the outfeed table, as measured, for example, with a steel straightedge or rule.)
You'll need a small open end wrench to loosen the nuts on one knife only, then replace and adjust the heights, then retighten, then move to the next knife, etc. As you retighten, be careful not to tweak the knife out of alignement, and tighten back and forth across the cutterhead, rather than in a straight line from one side to the other, so the torque is spread evenly across the cutterhead...
Here's a link to a parts guide and owner's manual if that would help you out...If you don't find one there check here and maybe there's something close enough to guide you through the process....
Be careful...If those knives aren't properly tightened you'll destroy the beds, and make sure you unplug the power to the machine before working on it.

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

Delta 28-160 band saw 3 wheel, blade keeps coming off


Sounds like your tracking screw needs adjustment, located right beside the knob used for tightening after adjusting the tension on the blade. Allen wrench required. Turning right pushes out and turning left pulls it in. A little is a lot when adjusting this screw. Always turn the blade in the same direction as the cut while adjusting.

I need to know how to aling the the out feet table heighth to that of the blade heighth. In moving, the out feet table is higher than the blade on a Delta wood jointer 37-196.


I assume you want to know how to get it adjusted just right, not how to move the outfeed table up and down. The easiest way I have found is to lay a metal ruler on edge on the outfeed table so that it extends over the blades. Slowly turn the blade forward by hand while you lower the outfeed table. Do that until the blade snags the metal ruler. Then raise the table until the blades just stop snagging the straight-edge.

I need to replace the blades on a Sears Scroll saw. Model # 149236160


Your scroll saw should have come with Hex end tools to use when changing out the blade. You must release the tension on the blade (located on top of arm above blade). There is a small allen head screw which has to be loosened with an allen wrench to release the blade. There is also an allen head screw under the working surface which will have to be loosened to remove blade at the bottom. Replace blade at the bottom 1st, tighten up then go to the top, tighten it, then reset the tension and you're ready to saw again. Make sure to get a visual on the directions of the blade teeth before you remove it so you can replace the new one the same way. I hope this is helpful.

Can not find replacement blades for delta jointer


I can't get a hit on that number, the model must be other. But it shouldn't be too hard.
Try to find a reliable sharpening service in your area; someone who does saw blades and knives for the cabinet shops will have a source for tool steel and carbide and can make you a set of knives for your jointer. Just get tool steel. While it won't hold it's edge quite as long as carbide knives, it will take a sharper edge to begin with, and should last just fine if you don't run sand through it.
If you have the original knives, hang onto them as they most likely can be resharpened to like new condition, and steel today ain't necessarily what it used to be.
The critical factor is the height. It's usually between 5/8" and 3/4" tall. You want them to be able to rest all the way down on the adjustable pistons without sticking up more than 10-15 thousands above the cutterhead. That will give you the most resharpenings from a set. You might want to invest in a magnaset to help with setting the knives in place.
Here's a link to the sharpening service I use: http://maps.google.com/maps?rls=com.microsoft:en-us&oe=UTF-8&um=1&ie=UTF-8&q=Precision+sharpening+%2B+Albuquerque,+NM&fb=1&split=1&gl=us&view=text&latlng=15322695688682105671
Finally, I would almost bet some contemporary delta replacement knives would work. If you find a place that will return your funds if they don't, you might be able to order them online. These guys will carry them if you can't find someone nearer you: http://woodworker.com

Technical


a jointer includes infeed and outfeed tables. A set of rotating blades is positioned between these two blades. A fence is set on one side of the jointer to serve as a guide. The infeed table and outfeed table are adjusted so that they are parallel, but the infeed table is slightly lower thereby exposing a small amount of the cutting blades. The woodworker then presses the lumber against the infeed table and pushes it onto the outfeed table; the rapidly spinning blades remove a small amount of material. If the wood is particularly warped, several passes on the jointer may be required.
