Question about Saws

1 Answer

I need help wiring a Delta 28-280 model bandsaw from 220v to 110v. The saw came 110v from the factory, but the previous owner re-configured the wiring to 220v. I need it back to 110v. Thank you.

Rewiring the motor isn't hard, but be aware that you can hurt/kill yourself if you mess this up.

That said, manual is here.

Before you start, make sure you have a couple wire nuts (orange & yellow are a good sizes), a replacement plug, and some electrical tape.

1.) Unplug the cord from the wall. Go ahead and remove the prongs since you're going to need to switch it back to a 120V type prong adaptor. Don't put new prongs on until you've got things rewired. This will help keep you from accidentally electrocuting yourself.

2.) Open the saw base and have a look at the motor. There's a cover held on by a single screw. There should also be a wiring diagram on the motor that looks something like:I need help wiring a Delta 28-280 model bandsaw - 1aa0c59.jpg

3.) When you remove the cover you should see three groups of wires. There should be numbers on the wires, but you can also figure them out by looking at the number of wires grouped together (see wiring diagram).

4.) You want to change from three groups of wires to two groups of wires per diagram, so when you're done, 1,3, & 5 should be grouped and 2,4, & 8 should be grouped. This is assuming your wiring diagram matches mine.

Make sure you don't have any exposed copper (cover w/ electrical tape if necessary). Make sure you have the wirenuts screwed on securely. Make sure you close the cover up and put the screw back in reasonably tight.

Put the prong on the wire, plug it in, and hit the start button. If you did everything right, it will start right up and no breakers will trip. If you goofed a pair, your motor may spin in the wrong direction. Otherwise, enjoy.

Will Delta Belt fit Mastercraft Band Saw


If you still have the old belt, take it to a well equipped hardware or auto parts store for a replacement. If the previous belt is missing, you will need to measure the pulley 'V' width at the top of the 'V', the center to center measurement of the two shafts, and the outer diameters of the two pulleys. 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.

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!!

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.
