I have an old 1954 Delta 20” bandsaw that I would like to sell as well as an Oliver 51A lathe. The bandsaw is in excellent condition and would require some light cleaning to the unpainted surfaces (table/guides). It comes with the original fence and miter gauge. I have replaced the 3 phase motor with a single phase Delta 1hp that runs on 110V or 220V.

The lathe is a 4’ 51A Kimble drive that is wired for 115V (although it needs a plug and longer wire). All the castings are in excellent shape, but it definately needs some cosmetic help. It comes with 1 6” faceplate and 1 6” rest, but no centers. The picture shows the speed adjusting handwheel to be missing, but I have it and will install before the lathe is picked up.

Both machines are located near Corning, NY.

I would like to get $1000 for the bandsaw with the single phase motor. The lathe I would like $500 for, but am open to offers.

I hope you have good luck on your sale. Looking on e bay I find 3 phase machinery seems to have very few buyers.

Yeah, I’ve had it up for sale locally for a couple of months and no one wants 3 phase. I’ve been looking for a single phase replacement motor, but haven’t come up with anything yet. A VFD could be had for $100 to make it run of 220V single phase though quite easily.

I have replaced the motor in the bandsaw with a dual shaft single phase Delta 1hp. This is what would have originally come with the bandsaw.
