POWER CONNECTIONS
A separate electrical circuit should be used for your machines. This circuit should not be less than #12 wire and should be
protected with a 20 Amp time lag fuse. If an extension cord is used, use only 3-wire extension cords which have 3-prong
grounding type plugs and matching receptacle which will accept the machine’s plug. Before connecting the machine to the
power line, make sure the switch (s) is in the “OFF” position and be sure that the electric current is of the same characteristics
as indicated on the machine. All line connections should make good contact. Running on low voltage will damage the
machine.
DO NOT EXPOSE THE MACHINE TO RAIN OR OPERATE THE MACHINE IN DAMP LOCATIONS.
MOTOR SPECIFICATIONS
Your machine is wired for 120 VOLT, 60 HZ alternating current. Before connecting the machine to the power source,
make sure the switch is in the “OFF” position.
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
THIS MACHINE MUST BE GROUNDED WHILE IN USE TO PROTECT THE OPERATOR FROM
ELECTRIC SHOCK.
2. Grounded, cord-connected machines intended for
use on a supply circuit having a nominal rating less
than 150 volts:
1. All grounded, cord-connected machines:
In the event of a malfunction or breakdown, grounding
provides a path of least resistance for electric current to
reduce the risk of electric shock. This machine is equipped
with an electric cord having an equipment-grounding
conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged
into a matching outlet that is properly installed and grounded
in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
If the machine is intended for use on a circuit that has an
outlet that looks like the one illustrated in Fig. A, the machine
will have a grounding plug that looks like the plug illustrated
in Fig. A. A temporary adapter, which looks like the adapter
illustrated in Fig. B, may be used to connect this plug to a
matching 2-conductor receptacle as shown in Fig. B if a
properly grounded outlet is not available. The temporary
adapter should be used only until a properly grounded outlet
can be installed by a qualified electrician. The green-colored
rigid ear, lug, and the like, extending from the adapter must
be connected to a permanent ground such as a properly
grounded outlet box. Whenever the adapter is used, it must
be held in place with a metal screw.
Do not modify the plug provided - if it will not fit the outlet,
have the proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in risk of electric shock. The conductor with
insulation having an outer surface that is green with or
without yellow stripes is the equipment-grounding
conductor. If repair or replacement of the electric cord or
plug is necessary, do not connect the equipment-grounding
conductor to a live terminal.
NOTE: In Canada, the use of a temporary adapter is not
permitted by the Canadian Electric Code.
Check with a qualified electrician or service personnel if the
grounding instructions are not completely understood, or if
in doubt as to whether the machine is properly grounded.
IN ALL CASES, MAKE CERTAIN THAT THE
R E C E P TA C L E I N Q U E S T I O N I S
PROPERLY GROUNDED. IF YOU ARE NOT
SURE, HAVE A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN
CHECK THE RECEPTACLE.
Use only 3-wire extension cords that have 3-prong grounding
type plugs and matching 3-conductor receptacles that
accept the machine’s plug, as shown in Fig. A.
Repair or replace damaged or worn cord immediately.

an outlet having the same configuration as the plug. No
adapter is available or should be used with this machine. If
the machine must be re-connected for use on a different
type of electric circuit, the re-connection should be made
by qualified service personnel; and after re-connection, the
machine should comply with the National Electric Code and
all local codes and ordinances.

Fig. C
EXTENSION CORDS
Use proper extension cords. Make sure your extension cord is in good condition and is a 3-wire
extension cord which has a 3-prong grounding type plug and matching receptacle which will accept the machine’s
plug. When using an extension cord, be sure to use one heavy enough to carry the current of the machine. An
undersized cord will cause a drop in line voltage, resulting in loss of power and overheating. Fig. D-1 or D-2, shows
the correct gauge to use depending on the cord length. If in doubt, use the next heavier gauge. The smaller the gauge
number, the heavier the cord.

MACHINE USE
BEFORE APPLYING POWER TO THE MACHINE, make all necessary adjustments and ensure that all guards are in
place and are secure. Turn the upper wheel by hand to visually inspect the machine.
Keep the top guide within 1/8" of the workpiece. Do not force the workpiece against the blade. Light pressure will
produce a smoother cut and prevent excess friction and heating of the blade. Keep the workpiece moving at a slow
and consistent rate.
To prevent twisting of the blade, avoid making sharp corner cuts.
KEEP THE SAW BLADE SHARP.
21
CUTTING CURVES
Turn the stock carefully so that the blade follows without twisting. For very abrupt curves, consider using a narrower
blade, or a blade with more set. Another solution to this problem is to make relief cuts (Fig. 39).
When you withdraw the workpiece or change the cut, be careful not to accidentally pull the blade off of the wheels.
The preference is to turn the stock and saw out through the waste material.

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 use it properly. Use blades of proper thickness, width
and temper for the various types of material and cuts.
Always use the widest blade possible. Use narrow blades only for sawing small, abrupt curves
and for fine, delicate work. This will save blades and will produce better cuts. For cutting wood
and similar materials, Delta offers blades in widths of 1/8", 1/4", 3/8", and 1/2".
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 blades are
subjected. Blades will break often due to avoidable causes, such as the lack of care to the blade
or the blade not being properly adjusted to the band saw. 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 the work piece too fast into the blade.
(4) dullness of the teeth, or absence of sufficient set.
(5) improperly tensioned blade.
(6) top guide set too high above the work piece being cut.
(7) using a blade with a lumpy or improperly finished braze or weld.
(8) continuous running of the saw blade when not cutting.
Use blades that are 93½" in length on this machine.
Always use a sharp blade. Keep it free from gum and pitch. Clean frequently with a stiff fiber
brush.
Narrow blades are used for cutting small circles or curves while the wider blades are best suited
for straight cutting such as ripping.
A new blade, in most cases, will perform better and last longer than a re-sharpened blade.
Insure that the blade guides are adjusted properly.
Do not force or twist the blade around a curve or a very short radius.
Feed the workpiece through the blade at a consistent rate, allow the blade to do the cutting – do
not feed the work piece too fast.
Do not apply excessive tension to the blade. The tension is only necessary to drive the blade
without slipping on the wheels. Narrow blades require less tension than wider blades.
24
MAINTENANCE
KEEP MACHINE CLEAN
LUBRICATION
Periodically blow out all air passages with dry compressed
air. All plastic parts should be cleaned with a soft damp
cloth. NEVER use solvents to clean plastic parts. They could
possibly dissolve or otherwise damage the material.
Apply household floor paste wax to the machine table and
extension table or other work surface weekly.
PROTECTING CAST IRON FROM RUST
To clean and protect cast iron tables from rust, you will
need the following materials: 1 pushblock from a jointer,
1 sheet of medium Scotch-Brite™ Blending Hand Pad, 1
can of WD-40®, 1 can of degreaser, 1 can of TopCote®
Aerosol. Apply the WD-40 and polish the table surface
with the Scotch-Brite pad using the pushblock as a
holddown. Degrease the table, then apply the TopCote®
accordingly.
Wear ANSI Z87.1 safety glasses while
using compressed air.
FAILURE TO START
