Hey Guys,

I just bought a vintage 10” 28-100 Delta bandsaw. Unfortunately when I loaded it up on the pickup, the table was not tighten and the trunnion clamp broke. I’ve tried JB weld with no real success. Do any of you guys know what are my options? I’ve thought about welding but not sure if its cast steel or iron. Maybe someone makes replacements? Online shows up at discontinued every site I go too.

Thanks for your help in advance

Cast iron can be brazed (not by me, but there are those who can do it.) Otherwise, check ebay maybe?

Tried ebay, apart for a table with the trunnion, thats all there is. I don’t really want to buy another table. So much for the deal I got. Sad sad day. Oh well, Ill look around locally and see if I can find anybody that could fix it.

Thank you

It can be fixed easily. Typically brazing is used, but I’ve even fixed broken cast iron pieces with a Mig welder successfully (using standard er56 wire and 75/25 gas). Find a local welding shop and they can fix you up. If you still want to find a replacement after that, it will at least get you up and running so you have time to look. I’d start by posting a wtb ad over in the BOYD section at OWWM (or searching if there is already one being sold).

Great to hear good old mig welder works just fine because I happen to have one. But I’ll look into have another one for back up. Thanks for the great news and site!
