Fig. 20 9 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. C Fig. 23 Fig. 22 10 ADJUSTING UPPER BLADE GUIDE ASSEMBLY DISCONNECT MACHINE FROM POWER SOURCE. The upper blade guide assembly (A) Fig. 24, should always be set as close as possible to the top surface of the material being cut by loosening lock knob (B) and moving the guide assembly (A) to the desired position. B E F ADJUSTING UPPER BLADE GUIDES AND BLADE SUPPORT BEARING C D A Fig. 24 DISCONNECT MACHINE FROM POWER SOURCE. The upper blade guides and blade support bearings are adjusted only after the blade is tensioned and tracking properly. To adjust proceed as follows: 1. The upper blade guides (A) Fig. 24, are held in place by means of the set screws (C) Fig. 24. The upper blade guide guard (D) Fig. 24 is held in place by bolts (E) and set screw (F) Fig. 24. Loosen the set screws (C) to remove the guides for maintenance. A D C 2. The complete upper guide block assembly bracket (A) Fig. 25, can be moved in or out by loosening set screw (B) Fig. 25. The guides (C) Fig. 25, should then be adjusted so that the front edge of the guide roller bearings are just behind the “gullets” of the saw teeth (D) Fig. 25. Be careful not to pinch the blade. B Fig. 25 3. Both upper roller bearing assemblies (A) Fig. 26, can be adjusted by loosening the socket head cap screw (B) Fig. 26. Slide both bearing assembly guides (C) Fig. 26, sideways so the roller bearing outer surface is a couple of thousandths of an inch (about the thickness of a piece of paper) away from the blade. Tighten securely. Be careful not to pinch the blade. D 4. The rear upper blade support bearing (D) Fig. 26, should also be adjusted so it is a couple of thousandths away from the back edge of the blade. The upper blade support bearing, prevents the blade from being pushed too far to the rear which could damage the set in the saw teeth. B A 11 C Fig. 26 ADJUSTING LOWER BLADE GUIDES AND BLADE SUPPORT BEARING B E A D DISCONNECT MACHINE FROM POWER SOURCE. The lower blade guides and lower blade support bearing should be adjusted at the same time as the upper guides and bearing as follows: C F 1. The lower blade guides (A) Fig. 27, are held in place by means of the cap screws (C) Fig. 27. Loosen the cap screws (C) to remove the guides for maintenance. Note: Lower the chip chute out of the way. 2. The complete lower guide block assembly bracket (B) Fig. 27 can be moved in or out by loosening the button head screw (D) Fig. 27. The guides (A) Fig. 27, should then be adjusted so that the front edge of the guide roller bearings are just behind the “gullets” of the saw teeth (F) Fig. 27. Be careful not to pinch the blade. Fig. 27 3. Both lower roller bearing assemblies (C) Fig. 28 can be adjusted by loosening the socket head cap screw (A) Fig. 28. Slide both bearing assembly guides (D) Fig. 28, sideways so the roller bearing outer surface is a couple of thousandths of an inch (about the thickness of a piece of paper) away from the blade. Tighten securely. Be careful not to pinch the blade. A B 4. The rear lower blade support bearing (E) Fig. 27 should also be adjusted so it is a couple of thousandths away from the back edge of the blade. The lower blade support bearing, prevents the blade from being pushed too far to the rear which could damage the set in the saw teeth. E CHIP CHUTE The chip chute (B) Fig. 28 can be equipped with accessories for easy connection to a central exhaust system as shown in (F) Fig. 28 connector and (E) Fig. 28 adapter.

Open the upper and lower wheel guards. 2. Release tension on the band saw blade. 3. Remove the table adjustment pin and table insert. 4. Slide the saw blade off the wheel and guide it out through the slot in the table. 5. To install the new saw blade, reverse the above procedure. NOTE: Blade teeth should be pointing downward at the front of the table. Fig. 29 12 C D 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. 13 ACCESSORIES The testing of this unit has been accomplished with the following accessories.
