Default Another project. Band saw.

I got this from my SIL yesterday. A 1966 Rockwell/Delta 28-380 band saw.
Lots of rust on it from sitting for 30 years. Everything is original, but just some knobs are missing.



And some blades for it


I also picked up some pipe clamps


And a Craftsman grinder

Nice find - and with a riser block, too. With a little cleanup and refurbishing you will have a real nice tool!

The design sure hasn't changed much over the years, Mike. Maybe cheaper components but it looks amazingly similar to my early-mid-90's model.

What's the second belt for? Is it a 2-speed gearbox?

Check out that new high-tech cordless router.. wireless and no recharging required!!

Mike,

I hoped you thanked your SIL for the gift.

I'll bet we see it refurbished and resprayed in no time flat.

That was a good find.

More than a good find, it's a good save. This thing was literally rusting away to nothing in the basement. The last time it was used, was for sawing deer bones.

I chucked a wire cup brush in the DP and started using that to attack the rust on the table. Took the trunnions apart for cleaning and hope to have the table parts done this weekend. Then I'll decide what to do about the rest of it. It's going to be a long road getting this one back in shape.
I need to scrounge for some knobs for it.

Yes, it is a multi-speed saw. The gearbox shifts to slow for metal cutting. Quite a unique saw. They don't make these anymore.

Basically the same design as my 2001 model. No sense screwing with a proven design. Only difference is my new one has voids in the casting. This one is solid, and heavier by far.

When I get this one done I'll decide which one I want to keep.
