Delta is/was Rockwell and has a long history.. early delta machines were actually badged “Delta Division” or “Delta Mfg. Division” of Rockwell International. My 1953 Delta is also labeled as such even though the main badge on the front cover just says Delta/Milwaukee. I believe there was a period around the early 70’s where many of the Delta machines were badged as Rockwell only, which is probably around the time of the machine you are looking at. Regardless of the name plate, it is a Delta 14” bandsaw which has been the industry standard for many, many years and will provide service for much longer than your required 5 year period. It does appear to be in very good condition based on the limited picture. It’s hard to price a machine without looking at it and knowing what the market in the area is, but Tedstors price ranges are reasonable. Given it’s age, I doubt it would need much of anything except perhaps new tires, which will set you back about $20 for a new pair online. For the price, you couldn’t touch it with any of the newer Asian clones out there.
