- Delta 14" Bandsaw with 1 hp motor, Enclosed Stand 28-206
- Brand: Delta | Category: Bandsaws
When it came to buying a new bandsaw, I really took my time on which one I wanted. I looked at all the main brands, and compared the difference. There were really not very many difference. They all cut wood…I ended up going with the brand that pioneered the 14” bandsaw, Delta Machinery.
I bought this bad boy at Rockler when they had there 15% of Delta tools.
The Bandsaw comes in one big box, and it weighs a lot. The way the box was shaped it was very hard for two people to hold, so my pops and I just slide it off the back of the car and into the shop. Right out the box, this bandsaw has quality, craftsmanship and innovation built into it. The instructions were excellent, always with Delta tools. Set up took about 3 hours. The stand and motor takes the most time. After the stand is assembled., its time to get a helper, and lift that bad ass onto the stand. Man was that heavy. The bandsaw is very hard to lift, because of the bandsaw shape.. After 3 hours you have a great running bandsaw. The only adjustment I had to make was the little red colored arrow that showed the angle of the table. Every thing was dead on.
What the bandsaw can do..
Some upgrades you should do when you first get the bandsaw…
Well that concludes the review. I have had this bandsaw since Nov of 2010 and has served me great and will serve me for a very long time…
If you are a Pro, hobbyist, or DYI this is a great bandsaw for you..
