Hello all, thanks for any advice you can offer me!
I was graciously given a Delta band saw model 28-254 “Platinum Edition” from a family friend who was recently widowed. It was in the original box with the New Yankee Workshop sticker still on it! I got it home and opened the box to find the Band saw, rolling base, fence, and a pulley with a belt and belt cover, but no motor, switch or saw stand. I’m wondering if I should:
A.) attempt to find the original Delta motor, switch and stand or similar model
B.) build my own stand and source a similar motor and switch.
C.) Sell what I have and save my money for a complete bandsaw in the future
I’d really like to try option “B” if its not too expensive (I am on a tight budget). Any advice is appreciated.
