Delta

Does anybody have any opinions on this band saw?
Model 28-276 14" 3/4 hp with open stand.

Did you say tool sale?

OK. I am assuming since I got no replies, that it ain't worth having.

More likely that no one owns it, or at least no one who has read the thread owns this model.

If it was not worth having I am sure anyone who thought so for whatever reason would warn you!

It sounds to me like its just a basic saw. My King is 14" 3/4hp and is only a basic saw nothing fancy and under powered.

I read a bunch of reviews and that saw had a few problems. Vibration was the biggest knock. I think if you do some searches you will find some reviews. I spent a bit more money on a Jet 14DX a few weeks ago and I'm real happy with this tool.

Mine had a bad vibration to and found the motor out of alignment so I relined it and it still had a little then after I put it on a mobile base with rubber wheels it cured almost 100%

Thanks guys. I am looking for something within the $500.00 range that I can add the riser block to if I decide to later.
I have come upon several things as of late that would have been a whole lot easier to accomplish if I had had a band saw. So, the hunt begins. What I really want and what I can afford never seem to match.

I have been hearing Steel city is putting out some decent tools so you might want to check into this.

I think I found the one I want. I'll just have to save up a little more for it.

Damn, every time I think I got the picture thing figured out it doesn't work.

woodman,

I just bought a Grizzly 14" ultimate bandsaw. They are on sale until the end of the year. I have heard it is a great saw. Didn't receive it yet but will post my opinions after I get a chance to use it.
