Been looking for an old Delta 20” Bandsaw for a long time. Finally able to get me one. Looks like it is in good condition. It is gonna be one Bad Ass machine once I get her all all restored and upgraded!

Congrats on your new (to you) band saw!! Hopefully you will get a lot of service out it. I had one of these in my toolroom before retiring and it was a work horse!! Enjoy it and have fun with it!!

Thanks for sharing

I think bertha has that same saw.
I don’t know how much work he had to do to his though.

It will be a sweet saw when you get it tuned up.

Yep got it on eBay.

I will probably replace the bearings, tires, and guides. Then clean it up and paint it.

Now I just have to find someone that wants to buy my Powermatic PWBS-14CS with Riser.
