Does anyone have experience rebuilding a 20 inch Delta/Rockwell Band saw. I would like to start with the upper bearings. Getting the wheel off is not a problem but then what. I have reviewed the parts list but I am not sure what end to start on and what tools to use. I don’t want to damage anything.

Thanks Brad,
That was amazingly helpful and yes there is a lot of information. I must say that the normal way I do things is like Hobbs recommended. No fear…Just let the wrenches fly. However, with my luck, I would force something a tad too much and be up the creek trying to find another part. This is a labor of love and I will bring it back to new condition. By the way that was my first post and I appreciate the response. Oh yes, I took the original 1 hp 3 phase motor to the shop. If it is in good shape, I will get a VFD on Ebay. If not, I will convert to a single phase. Any recommendation on single phase motor(brand and HP?).
