Topic tags/keywords: question bandsaw

I just bought a Delta Band saw yesterday for $100 it seemed like a steal. I got home and both trunnions were broken. I moved it but did not completely manhandle it. I have read in a few reviews that people really don’t like the Delta trunnions. So what do I do now? I was thinking of ordering new ones from Delta they are cheap but on back order. Does anyone make aftermarket strong trunnions that will fit?

Wondering if it is the Delta 14”. I have bought parts from Mike. Not third party stuff but a good source if you need.

Think of the really cool cuts you could make without the table! Curves with twists!

I just found a place locally that I can pick them up to avoid shipping costs. These will be Delta replacement parts. I will be more careful and hope they last a little longer. I am still interested in finding out if anyone makes a higher quality replacement part cast iron would be nice. I may have to explore tableless band sawing at some point.

Ebay has some. Delta OEM trunnions and shoes are also in the Iturra Design Catalog. The catalog is a 246 page book on perfecting your 14” bandsaw. It explains why you would want the parts they sell and which brand (theirs or others) would work best for you. I recommend this catalog. Unfortunately Louis Iturra doesn’t seem to believe in websites, so you would have to call (904-642-2802) to order parts and/or a catalog and be patient. Having the catalog, I’ll jump through hoops to do business with them. If I didn’t have it , I’d note the Ebay seller accepts PayPal and has free shipping. -Jack
