    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.
