Topic tags/keywords: bandsaw

I’m looking for a Bearing load spring – Part number 928070107353, and a Pulley shaft key – part number 927030102650.

Everyone online has them on back order. Seems like Delta is having more problems.

I have an early 90’s Delta 14” bandaw.

Please help!

Chris

The pulley key… is that some special size? You can buy keyway stock in various thicknesses at HD or Lowes. Comes in 12” lengths and you cut it to the length you need with a hacksaw.

Yeah, you should be able to get the pulley key at just about any hardware store. As for the spring here is a linkhttp://www.highlandwoodworking.com/iturra2-12bandsawspringfordeltabandsaws.aspx for an aftermarket that is probably better than OEM.

If you have a WW Graingers anywhere near you, they sell like a BAZILLION different springs. Surely they could fix you up with something that’d work…

This person on eBay has an entire store dedicated to replacement parts. I’ve bought quite a few things from him, his stuff always fits right, and he ships quickly, and his prices are sometimes better than Delta’s.

To clarify, I’m not looking for a tension spring. I’m looking for a bearing load spring. It goes in the lower wheel assembly

Chris:
Okay, for the benefit of other people restoring or repairing the typical Delta (or clone) bandsaw, the link above brings you to a great seller on eBay. Go his ‘store’, he’s got lots of bandsaw replacement parts.

Have you tried checking on toolpartsdirect.com ? An old friend purchased the same part before with the site.

Thanks for all the responses.

Poopiekat: I looked through his store, and he does not currently have the part I’m looking for.

Surfside: Toolpartsdirect (and seemingly everyone else) has them on back order.

I’ve discovered that the part is called a Finger Spring Washer, and is used in a variety of machinery applications. There are companies out there that make them. So, it looks like I can get this silly saw up and running.

Thanks again for all your help, Jocks!

McMaster-Carr in Chicago has all sorts of disc springs.

Page 3577 of the catalog lists “High-Carbon Steel Finger Disc Springs”. They are shown as being used against bearings to reduce noise, end play, and skidding wear on parts rotating at high speed. You have to buy a pack of ten, but most sizes are about $1.00 a piece. You can use two, keep a set of spares, and sell the rest to other LJs. Hopefully they have an appropriate size. If not then the wave type springs do exactly the same job and they have a large selection of them.

EVERYONE should have a McMaster-Carr catalog. >3,600 pages of great stuff. They give fantastic turn around on orders.

By the way, the finger disc springs are on the LAST page of the catalog. Thank goodness for the index! I would have been flipping pages all day looking on my own.

Oh! They are certain to have the pulley key you need as well, although I didn’t look that one up.

Those parts are not Delta specific, so they can be sourced from lots of different places. A quick google search for “finger spring washer” turns up tons of places in addition to the McMaster-Carr pointer above. The keys, both the woodruff and straight bar can be be found at at any local hardware store, tractor supply, borg, etc..

Also, as for the spring washers.. the parts diagram shows 1 washer. Many people have reported having two washers when they tear their machine down. My machine actually had three! Here is a picture of the lower shaft parts including washers and keys:

This is why I love lumberjocks. You’ve all been very helpful. This weekend I’m going to tear down the motor so I can replace the bearings, and buy some key stock. I’ll order a finger spring washer, too.

Thanks for all the help.
