    Bandsaw Repair parts?

    I seem to recall a resource being mentioned here off and on over the years.
    My rudimentary search skills aren't turning anything up so I'm hoping someone will chime in with the info.
    All I recall is there's a gentleman in Florida who is everything bandsaw related.
    Manuals, parts, knowledge- maybe more.

    Reason for the request is I've damaged the tensioner on my Delta 14".
    Pulled on the quick release to tension the blade and it seemed stuck.
    I backed off the tension knob and swung the lever again and something went pop (small bang?)
    Now no tension to be had.

    Haven't had a chance to dig into it yet but figured I'd line up the resource for new parts once I know what I need.

    Still don't know why this happened everything was working correctly a few days earlier.
    No hint of trouble.

    Maybe I'll find a clue when I get it opened up.


    thanks for the help.

    Think I found a name Iturra.
    Does that ring any bells?

    Just happen to have the catalog next to me while watching the masters. Of course, I've finished two platters and am ready to add surface coating. One oak and one walnut today. Suggestions?

    Re: Bandsaw Repair parts?

    Thanks-
    I emailed to see if there are times to call or avoid calling.
    Seems like the kind of guy who doesn't let the business interfere with more important things.

    If I don't hear back I may ask to get a look at your catalog Mike.
    Then at least I'll know what I'm asking for.

    Thanks for the follow up.
    We'll see where this goes.

    For an idea of who/what you are working with, google map the address. He works out of his shop next to his house.

    Re: Bandsaw Repair parts?

    Yes, call him. He will know what you need. Go ahead and ask about what upgrades
    will make you saw run better than new. Spend a couple hundred and you’ll
    be very happy with your new saw.

    Oh, get the catalog/manual/history book. You will enjoy it.

    Re: Bandsaw Repair parts?

    Catalog comes with an order, if you ask and sometimes if you don't.
    Keep it for reference. Not much changes year to year, but just a lot of good bandsaw information.

    Be sure and get the catalog. It is more like a tutorial on Band Saw Maintenance & setup rather than just a catalog. Well worth having as a reference.

    Re: Bandsaw Repair parts?

    Bad news good news.

    Talked to Louis Iturra last week. Nice guy, very helpful.
    Up to the point where he said he had never seen that part break and confirmed it was discontinued.
    He gave me the Delta part number for it and cross referenced the other saws on which it was used.
    Also a couple recommendations on where to look for a stray one that might be floating around.

    No luck.

    Good news is when I asked how I was going to get hold of one of his catalogs since there was no part for me to order, he just asked for my address and sent me one.

    Arrived today- great resource- now I just need a saw.

    Since the broken part only concerns the quick release on the tensioner, I'm contemplating just bypassing it and using the knob for tensioning and relief.

    Re: Bandsaw Repair parts?

    Probably a long shot, but check https://www.ereplacementparts.com/de...ts-c-3275.html. They carry Delta parts, but if yours is an obsolete part they may not have it.
