This 1936 Delta/Rockwell 10’ bandsaw, Is a machine that was giving to me. It was in really rough shape when I got it. But with a little cleaning it’s almost like new. The blade that came with it was 60 years old! So I replaced that, and cleaned the table. The belt that goes around the wheel I replaced also. Its a 1 HP motor, and made by delta/rockwell. The stand was built out of metal and wood. It weighs in at 180lb but can be moved with the wheel’s on the stand. Works well, and runs smoothly.
Thanks for looking!

Nice job! Did you replace the motor? I restored a 14” Delta bandsaw too. I enjoyed doing it so much. It was as fun as doing a woodworking project.

No, I didn’t replace the motor. But the guy I got it from did.

Need a much bigger pic. I currently use a 1936ish lathe which is nice and heavy with lots of features. Still good quality useable stuff today.
