Some of you may remember the topic and posted about the Delta band saw with the smiley face that I got from a posting on Craig’s list. http://lumberjocks.com/topics/58698
It did not come with a stand but I have found one at Harbor Freight and it will work out great for this saw with the motor under the saw on a bottom shelf.
I am going to be stating some clean up on the saw shortly. I am going to remove the top. I can figure out how to remove that just by looking at it. (six bolts) What I really want to get at is the things under the table. The lower roller bearing is pretty much seized up. The cool blocks need to be replaced and I have those. Picked them up from Woodcraft along with a new blade.
Can these bearings be cleaned up and reused? Where might I find new ones if they can’t be cleaned. I have new tires and will be replacing those too. Wire brushing and sanding will be last before a couple coats of paint and a shop made plywood cover like this http://lumberjocks.com/projects/67210 for the lower wheel with dust collector provisions. Anyother clean up hints appreciated.
