Question about Delta 28 276 14" Band Saw W/ 3/4 Hp Motor & Open Stand

Open Question

Upper Wheel Rubs Housing I recently purchased a new Delta Model 28-276 Open Frame Bandsaw. I have completed assembly and leveling/squaring all the components. When I turn the saw on, there is a slight rub of the housing on the top wheel. I don't want to pry to back by placing pressure on the top, or the bearing in the hub for that matter. Any ideas? Thanks.

SOURCE: I am not having much luck with blade alignment on

Check that the washers on the motor shaft are positioned properly. I believe the washers are dish shaped one should be on each side of the blade with the wide shoulder aginst the blade. Check this. Also if you go to Deltaportercable.com you can get an owners manuel for free on line. If this was helpful, please leave feedback.
Thanks, Snugglepants

SOURCE: 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!

SOURCE: 28-276 Delta bandsaw blade keeps coming off?

Unplug the machine, gain access to the two wheels. On the back of the machine you should have a tilt adjustment knob. Manually turn the wheels in the direction of the cut and at the same turn adjust the tilt knob on the back of the machine. This should solve the problem.

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

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.

I am changing the saw blade on 12 inch Craftsman bandsaw


Go to: Searspartsdirect.com and enter the complete model number minus the decimal point. This will bring you a series of parts drawings and possibly an owner's manual. Generally, adjustment is provided for the upper wheel only--use hand power to check the tracking performance. Good luck!

With saw unpluged!!!!! open top wheel gaurd.Spin wheel by hand while moving the adjuster knob on back of the machine. As you turn both at the same time the blade will trac either the front or back of the wheel. Move the knob (while spinning the wheel) until the blade is tracking in the middle of the tire.

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.
