SAFETY RULES
Woodworking can be dangerous if safe and proper operating procedures are not followed. As with all machinery, there are certain
hazards involved with the operation of the product. Using the machine with respect and caution will considerably lessen the possibility of personal injury. However, if normal safety precautions are overlooked or ignored, personal injury to the operator may result.
Safety equipment such as guards, push sticks, hold-downs, featherboards, goggles, dust masks and hearing protection can reduce
your potential for injury. But even the best guard won’t make up for poor judgment, carelessness or inattention. Always use common sense and exercise caution in the workshop. If a procedure feels dangerous, don’t try it. Figure out an alternative procedure
that feels safer. REMEMBER: Your personal safety is your responsibility.
This machine was designed for certain applications only. Delta strongly recommends that this machine not be modified and/or used
for any application other than that for which it was designed. If you have any questions relative to a particular application, DO NOT
use the machine until you have first contacted Delta to determine if it can or should be performed on the product.

ADJUSTING
BLADE TENSION
DISCONNECT MACHINE FROM POWER SOURCE.
On the back of the upper wheel slide bracket, there is a
series of graduations. These indicate the proper tension
for various widths of blades. With the blade on the
wheels, turn the knob (A) Fig. 21, to raise or lower the
wheel, until the red fiber washer (B) is in line with the
proper graduation for the size of blade being used.
The graduations will be found correct for average work,
and are not affected by rebrazing of the saw blade. We
urge you to use these graduations until you have
become familiar enough with the operation of the Band
Saw to vary the tension for different kinds of blades or
work. OVER-STRAINING IS A COMMON CAUSE OF
BLADE BREAKAGE AND OTHER UNSATISFACTORY
BLADE PERFORMANCE. RELEASE THE TENSION
WHEN THE MACHINE IS NOT IN USE.
TRACKING THE BLADE
DISCONNECT MACHINE FROM POWER SOURCE.
IMPORTANT: Before tracking the blade, make sure the
blade guides and blade support bearings are clear of the
blade so as not to interfere with the tracking adjustment.
After tension has been applied to the blade, rotate the
wheels slowly forward by hand and watch the blade (A)
Fig. 22, to see that it travels in the center of the upper
tire. If the blade begins to creep toward the front edge,
loosen the wing nut (B) Fig. 23, and tighten the thumb
screw (C). This will tilt the top of the wheel toward the
back of the machine and will draw the blade toward the
Fig. 21
center of the tire. If the blade creeps toward the back
edge, turn the thumb screw in the opposite direction.
Adjust the thumb screw (C) Fig. 23, only a fraction of a
turn at a time. NEVER TRACK THE BLADE WHILE THE
MACHINE IS RUNNING. After the blade is tracking in
the center of the tires, tighten the wing nut (B) Fig. 23.

BAND SAW BLADES
A band saw blade is a delicate piece of steel that is subjected to tremendous strain. You can obtain long use
from a band saw blade if you give it fair treatment. B
ensure you use blades of the proper thickness, width,
and temper for the various types of material to be cut.
Any one of a number of conditions may cause a band saw
blade to break. Blade breakage is, in some cases,
unavoidable, being the natural result of the peculiar
stresses to which such blades are subjected. It is, however, often due to avoidable causes, most often to lack of
care or judgment on the part of the operator in mounting
or adjusting the blade or guides. The most common
causes of blade breakage are: 1) faulty alignments and
adjustments of the guides; 2) forcing or twisting a wide
blade around a curve of short radius; 3) feeding too fast;
4) dullness of the teeth or absence of sufficient set; 5)
excessive tightening of the blade; 6) top guide set too
high above the work being cut; 7) using a blade with a
lumpy or improperly finished braze or weld; and 8) continuous running of the saw blade when not in use for cutting.
Always use the widest blade possible. Use the narrow
blades only for sawing small, abrupt curves and for fine
delicate work. This will save blades and will produce
better work. Band saw blades may be purchased, welded, set and sharpened ready for use. For cutting wood
and similar materials, Delta supplies blades in widths of
1
/8, 3/16, 1/4, 3/8, 1/2, and 3/4 inches.
File and set the wood cutting blades whenever you find
it requires pressure to make them cut. If a blade is broken it can be brazed or welded; however, if it has
become badly work-hardened, it will soon break in
another place. If you are not equipped to file, set and
braze or weld blades, take them to a saw filer for reconditioning. Under average conditions, blades should be
resharpened after 4 hours of operation.
New blades for the standard 14-inch Band Saw are
931/2 inches long. The adjustment will accommodate
blades up to a maximum length of 94 inches and to a
minimum length of 911/2 inches. When equipped with the
No. 28-984 Height Attachment, new blades should be
105 inches long. The adjustment will accommodate
blades up to a maximum length of 106 inches and to a
minimum length of 1031/2 inches.
OPERATING THE BAND SAW
Before starting the machine, see that all adjustments are
properly made and the guards are in place. Turn the pulley by hand to make sure that everything is correct
BEFORE turning on the power.
KEEP THE SAW BLADE SHARP and you will find that
very little forward pressure is required for average cutting. Move the stock against the blade steadily and no
faster than will give an easy cutting movement.
Keep the top guide down close to the work at all times.
Do not force the material against the blade too hard.
Avoid twisting the blade by trying to turn sharp corners.
Remember, you must saw around corners.
Light contact with the blade will permit easier following of
the line and prevent undue friction, heating, and workhardening of the blade at its back edge.
CUTTING CURVES
When cutting curves, turn the stock carefully so that the
blade may follow without being twisted. If a curve is so
abrupt that it is necessary to repeatedly back up and cut
a new kerf, either a narrow blade is needed or a blade
with more set is required. The more set a blade has, the
easier it will allow the stock to be turned, but the cut is
usually rougher than where a medium amount of set is
used. In withdrawing the piece being cut, in order to
change the cut, or for any other reason, the operator
must be careful that he does not accidentally draw the
blade off the wheels. In most cases it is easier and safer
to turn the stock and saw out through the waste material, rather than try to withdraw the stock from the blade.

Delta is proud of the quality power tools it sells. The component parts of our
tools are inspected at various stages of production and each finished tool is
subjected to a final check before being packaged for shipment. Because of
our confidence in our engineering quality, Delta agrees to repair or replace any
part or parts of Delta/Porter-Cable Power Tools and accessories which examination proves to be defective in workmanship or material. The warranty
period for Delta brand is two years, for Porter-Cable, one year. Any alleged
defective part or parts must be returned prepaid to the Delta factory or one of
the service centres. The guarantee does not include repair labour or parts
replacement required because of misuse, abuse, or normal wear and tear.

service station relieve Delta of further liability under this guarantee. THIS
GUARANTEE IS MADE EXPRESSLY IN PLACE OF ALL OTHER GUARANTEES OR WARRANTIES, EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO
QUALITY, MERCHANTABILITY, OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
Delta est fière de la qualité des outils électriques qu’elle met sur le marché.
Leurs composants sont inspectés à chaque étape de la fabrication, et chaque
outil subit une dernière vérification avant d’être emballé pour l’envoi. Pour

dûment reconnu de matière ou de fabrication. La garantie est d’une durée de

pièce, occasionnés par suite de mauvais usage, dégradation et usure normale, lesquels ne donnent droit ni à remplacement, ni à réparation. Toute
réparation effectuée en dehors de notre usine, de nos succursales de service
et de nos centres de service autorisés annule la garantie. IL EST
