I just inherited an old “generic” Delta clone 14” bandsaw. It will need work to get up and running, and before I sink any time and money into it I have a question about one issue that I have noticed right away:
The guide post is loose and despite how much I crank down on it’s tightening knob, the post still wiggles around. Don’t get me wrong; it is held in place (vertically at least) so it’s not moving up and down, but I can still wiggle the post around. It would appear that the casting that the post rides up and down in is worn, or possibly was just never a good fit from day one.
I don’t have any experience with bandsaws so I don’t know if this is unacceptable or even repairable.
