Subject: [Puptcrit] Delta Bend saw and blades



Dear Pupniks,

I too have used A Delta bandsaw since 1966, what's that 45 years ago?  And I bought a second larger one, like Greg Ballora described.  I found a band saw blade replacement store locally, which sells unlimited lengths of blades, cuts them off, electronically welds them to proper dimension and sells them for less than those provided by Delta..and provides, many different widths and cutting edges. FWIW,  Jim Gamble

Dear Puptniks,
I like my Delta Bandsaw also. It's a 16". I bought it off a metal  
artist 10 years ago. It was too light a machine for his needs, just  
right for mine. Like David says-- blade changes are daed easy--  
although now you have to hunt around a bit online to find the proper  
blades. Or order them from the McMaster catalog.
