Yep, just pick what looks to be the most appropriate section of the Forums and fire away! This is a very responsive community – I think you’ll like it.

Help needed. I have a Delta16” motorized band saw, 3 wheels. Numbers on facing cover
are 426-00-752-0006. Numbers inside unit on the cast iron are 49 88 049 419 88 049 201.
Beneath that letters WF. This particular saw has a rectangular stock lift for the top shoe. I would
like information on converting existing rectangular stock to round stock to be able to put more
accurate bearings, guides, etc ? Lower blade guide is a solid piece of dye cast aluminum held in place with a nut & bolt, I have raised this to get it closer to the base table.
It has one back bearing and cool brushes on both sides of the blade, upper and lower. Everything that can be changed has been changed on this machine. Tires, shims, bushings, bearings, blocks, guide, but I still can’t get a stock cut over 2 inches (duplicate) – the blade travels towards the throat of the mechine.
P. S. Tension spring for blade tensioning is the only thing that has not been changed.
Any help you can give me would be appreciated. Or should I invest in a new mechine?

Mine was doing that over this past weekend. I lowered the blade guard thinking that may help. It did help but very little. I put on a new blade yesterday and the test cuts were straight then. Welcome to LJ’s. I’ve been here near a month now. These folks are pretty awesome in helping us out.
