Product Description

Amazon.com

Delta's 28-276 band saw is a smart buy for the serious hobbyist interested in curve cutting and light resawing. The 3/4-horsepower 120-volt motor delivers smooth, quiet, reliable power, while the saw's nine-spoke wheels deliver more accurate tension on the blade, greatly reducing vibration. The heavy cast-iron trunnions likewise minimize vibration to the blade. For curve cutting, the large 16-by-16-inch table provides excellent support for workpieces, and tilts to 45 degrees for bevel cuts. The saw handles stock up to 6-1/4 inches thick with a throat capacity (the distance from frame to blade) of 13-3/4 inches. The lower blade guide on this saw rests only 3/4 inch below the table, which significantly minimizes deflection in the blade, a big plus. When the saw is not in use, the tension-release lever extends the life of the blade. It also makes switching blades quick and easy. The saw comes equipped with a 4-inch dust port, a smart feature you won't find on many other band saws on the market today. Package includes 3/4-inch woodcutting blade and instruction manual. --Jon Groebner

The vertical bolt that drops out of the bottom of the table is supposed to fit through this hole.

My wife bought me this saw for Christmas and I was very excited. A Delta bandsaw! Great! Wrong, wrong, wrong.
After hauling the 240 pound box (weight is good right?) into my shop I realized that the saw was made in China! That's too bad, but hey, I thought, those are the times. They can make good tools in China, right? Of course, my Dad tells me that Lowe's was proudly displaying this saw as "Made in the USA" but that's a whole different story.
As I assembled the saw I found three different serious manufacturing defects. The first two I overcame using an anvil, hammer, grinder, files, and time. The last one defeated me.
1) One of the legs for the base was not bent close enough to a right angle to fit the base. Normally you can fiddle around with a part like this, get the bolts through, and then tighten the bolts down to line things up, but this was so off that I could not even got two bolts through the holes in the base. Hammer. Anvil. Messed up paint, but hey at least I don't have to haul that 240# back to Lowe's, right?
2) The tack welded nut on the base that holds the engine stop bolt in place was welded off-center to the hole in the base. This made it impossible to thread the engine stop bolt into place. Grinder. Files. Gouged base and messed up paint, but hey at least I don't have to haul that 240# back to Lowe's, right?
3) The hole in the front cast iron saddle that supports the table was mis-drilled. The vertical bolt that drops out of the bottom of the table is supposed to fit through this hole. Unfortunately, the shaft for the bottom blade bearing adjuster passes about 1/8" too close to the hole and the bolt can't pass through.

I bought one of these. My wife and I managed to haul all 240 pounds of it down into the basement, where I spend most of a day setting it and a mobile base up. Then I tried to use it. I spent a lot of time adjusting, because nothing was remotely right in the setting. Then I fired it up. It ran for a few seconds, than made a lot of noise. It threw the top tire. I got it back on and got everything running again, but it continued to throw that top tire, either gluing to the back of the saw or jumping off the front. After much fiddling, Mary and I hauled all 240 pounds back up stairs and I returned it and bought the Jet JWBS-14CS instead, which is a far superior saw.
The 28-276 (and the 28-206, which is basically the same saw) is of very poor quality. The castings have lots of slag on them. There is massive slop in the adjustments. The top guide can be easily deflected. Some adjustments are very difficult to reach. The belt caused massive vibration. The lower wheel had 0.035" wobble and the upper wheel had 0.020" of warp. Delta should seriously reconsider importing this saw.

I bought this saw as a Christmas present for myself from Lowe's.

I did have a problem with assembling the legs, but only because it seemed that they should be bolted to the inside of the frame; after enough inspection, I realized they went on the outside of the frame. After that, everything went smoothly.

On startup, there was a lot of vibration. But, I let the saw run a while and the vibration settled down. It turned out to be that the belt needed to lose its curled shape in order to run smooth. Again, after 10 or 15 minutes of running, it settled down.

Instructions were clear for assembly as well as set up.

You will immediately want to purchase one high-quality blade for re-saw, and one high-quality blade for tight radius cuts.

The saw does not come with a fence or miter gauge. I don't see that as a negative:

- there is such a wide range in the quality and price of fences that I would rather decide for myself if I want a simple, low dollar version or one of the more expensive ones.

- I already have two miter gauges, and don't need another one. When they include one, the cost has to come from somewhere.

After a couple of hours of test driving the saw in a variety of cuts, I have to say I'm pretty happy with it. I honestly believe that in the next year or two I will wish I had spent an extra hundred dollars or so to get the next model up, though, because I don't think the 3/4 horsepower motor is going to satisfy all of my requirements.

I received this saw for Christmas and I am gravely disappointed with the Chinese way of craftsmanship. I have used the saw for approximately 15 hours. During this time it usually does not work longer that 15 minutes without something going wrong. The upper tire comes off every few minutes and both wheels are out of balance. The machine vibrates uncontrollably and is horrible to use. Save yourself a lot of heart ache and buy something else, preferably made with pride in the United States.

Took me about 2 hours to assemble the saw, all the holes were drilled in the right places and the welds were good. Bolts were hard enough so they didn't strip out when tightened. Bought a Mobile base from Sears right away because of limited space in my little shop. When properly adjusted the saw ran fine, vibration occured at first because of incorrect adjustments on my part, but after that it was quite and ran very nicely. Although you can get a better saw, and ofcourse pay alot more money, this band saw will satisfy me very nicely as I'm retired and on a fixed income. I'd recommend this saw highly, inspect the product very closely before you assemble it to make sure all parts are properly machined and align right, this is something you need to do with any product you have to assemble.
Happy Band Sawing!!
