Topic tags/keywords: question reliant bandsaw manual resource

I just picked up a Reliant DD90 14” bandsaw. No manual, of course.

  • Does anyone have a manual they can scan and email to me? bourg2649@gmail.com

I was told it is a true Delta knock-off so Delta replacements parts plug-and-play on the Reliant. It has the Delta riser kit installed so “it must be true”. I broke the two table trunnions trying to move the saw back a couple of inches. Looks like they were already cracked. Lesson learned: don’t move by the table. Ordered Delta trunnions. I expect them to arrive tomorrow.

  • Anyone got any recommendations, suggestions, warnings about this saw? Any good mods?
    I already replace the tensioner rod with a longer one to get the knob above the wheel housing. I have been pondering the lack of a dust port.

Thanks
Berg

Try this. I had the same question a few weeks ago, and this did the trick for me.

Oh yeah. Thanks Tim. Even after pointing it out I had trouble finding it. Couldn’t make that link any less obvious could they? OK, it’s me. My wife says I’m lousy looker. I say I’m a great looker, I’m just a lousy finder. :)

The HF looks pretty much the same as the Reliant. Even the “WOOD CUTTING” decal. Different knobs is about all.

Gned was kind enough to copy and email the dd90 manual. If anyone else could use a copy I would be happy to forward it to them.
George, Again thank you for taking the time to make that copy for me.

If this is a Delta knockoff I have a Delta manual for the Delta Model # 28-275 in PDF format. I’ll be glad to email the PDF file to anyone that needs it.
