ID bandsaw

Can anyone ID the model number of the following band saw? Delta Rockwell part #AQ9728, beige in color ,on a stand, marked Home Craft with 69 written on side. It appears to be 1960 vintage.

There should be an id plate with the model, serial, voltage, hp, wattage etc somewhere on the saw.
A quick DuckDuckGo search of that part number returned a lot of Nike leggings links.

Posting photos would help. Knowing more information about it (the size of the wheels? other characteristics) would help.

A quick web search revealed Delta Homecraft 28-110 is a common, popular model. It is a ten-inch bandsaw:

User manual for it:

Could that be it?

Note: This was done with web searches alone. I have not seen one of them in person.

Homecraft was Rockwell/Delta's "competitive" line, they are pretty good tools, but were made to compete with Craftsman and other cheaper tools


The 69 might mean a 69 inch blade, or something totally different LOL


They didn't put serial numbers on a bunch of machines, some had them and some didn't

There is no app for experience

According to the manual that I posted above, the blade length on the Delta Homecraft 28-110 ranges is 71-3/4 long, but it accommodates a range from 69-1/2 to 72 inches.
