Broken bandsaw

I was cutting up some blanks for my next turning session



and my frikkin' band saw decided to sh#t the bed.



So I took a deep breath and sharpened up my axe and spent some time at the chopping block



I guess I'm ready

What broke? Is the blade brocken? I had one of the 3 wheel bandsaws. throw it away. Even my chinese cheapy 2 wheelers were better. I now have a Delta 14" 2 wheeler and it's far superior. It did cost more but man is it worth it.

Interesting, I broke the blade on my bandsaw last night cutting up blanks and didn't have a spare around to put on to continue. My poor little 9" craftsman does pretty well normally but I think it's about to see the last of it's days.

I want to die quietly in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like the passengers of his car.

Nothing really "broke" ....just my spirit, I guess.
I've been tweaking and fussing and cleaning and adjusting this thing until I'm blue in the face......

I was hoping to hear from someone who had experience with one.

Now I have....Thanks, John

What Delta model 14"?

I had the Delta 3 wheel 16". I had constant problems with the blades breaking and it would wonder like crazy when cutting anything thick, dry or green. You simply can't get the blade tension adequate.
I'm not sure what model 14delta I have. It is a closed stand version and has a riser block. I hear people say all the time they wish they had a bigger bandsaw but mine easily cuts through 12" green wood to but up my blanks or resaw boards. I bought it used from a friend who is retiring and still has his older 36" bandsaw. I'm not joking about his big bandsaw. It's about 10 feet tall and takes up the whole corner of his workshop.

If buying a band saw today this is what I want. They go on sale couple of times a year, or shop around for best price and free shipping.
