    Re: Bandsaw Repair parts?

    Steve,
    What broke?
    a spring, a casting?

    Can it be welded, machined, re-manufactured etc.?

    If it is a 14" Delta, we all might have a worry - I realize Louis said it is rare, but MANY people on this site know mu luck...

    Re: Bandsaw Repair parts?

    Hank-it's the cam that toggles the tension on and off when you turn the quick release lever. The cam has a post sticking out one side (parallel to the axis) that the cam follower rides on. The post is what broke.
    The cam /post end of the part is definitely cast. I can see the witness line from the mold as well as the grainy internal structure where it broke. The rest appears smooth probably a secondary machining process.

    i doubt i could could repair it in a way that would stand up to the force involved.

    I do know a machinist who can probably make me one. Just need to catch up with him.

    FWIW. Luis has all the other parts that comprise the tensioning system. Just not this one.

    You might try Grizzly, many of their bandsaw parts are exact duplicates of older Delta.

    Re: Bandsaw Repair parts?

    There's also the Carter QR1000 quick release that's supposed to fit Delta 14" band saws. It's pretty expensive, but if you really want that feature on that particular bandsaw to keep from buying a new one it may be an option.

    Re: Bandsaw Repair parts?

    You might want to look at Renovoparts.com. They re manufacture parts for Delta equipment and if it exists in any way, they will have it. I broke the bed release lever on my around 20 year old Delta model 37-195 6 inch jointer and the Delta site listed it as obsolete. The problem with most of the online parts houses such as ereplacementparts,com is that they only sell what is still available from the manufacturer so unless they happen to have some old stock, you are SOL. This company makes there own and had the release lever. It was not cheap and seems to be made out of better materials than the original part. I also ordered parts for my Delta tenoning jig which were also listed as obsolete from Delta. If you can't find them, post the part number and I'll see if they have it.

    Re: Bandsaw Repair parts?

    UPDATE: Saw fixed
    Problem-



    Solution-

    ground off the remains of the broken part
    Drilled out a hole as close to the same center as I could
    inserted a roll pin of the same diameter
    stuck it back in the saw
    works

    Tension OFF


    Tension ON


    Tried to position the slot in the roll pin so it didn't interfere with the cam follower as it turned.
    So far so good.

    Put the saw back together after a thorough cleaning, installed the blade and tensioned it.
    Simple straight cut in 4/4 poplar worked fine.

    I did make a detailed dimensioned drawing in case this fails and I need to have one made

    Thanks for all the suggestions. These pics are in my gallery in case anyone needs them for future reference.

    Re: Bandsaw Repair parts?

    If the roll pin fails, try to find some oil hardening drill rod of the same diameter. It will be solid throughout and you may get better service from it, but it looks like your current fix is working for now.
    WHAT BOX?

    Re: Bandsaw Repair parts?

    There's not a lot of meat left where I drilled the casting for the pin.
    My guess is that's what will go if/when it goes.

    If the pin itself fails, I'll give drill rod a shot.
    Thanks

    Another option is to tap casting, and use a grade 8 bolt with head cut off.

    Be sure to use locktite if you choose this route so there is no movement and eventual loosening of the bolt in the casting.

    (GREAT idea Bruce!)
