I just bought a 20" Delta 28-365 wood/metal varialble speed band saw for
$1,000. Great deal right? Well it has the old metal plate blade guides
for cutting metal so I thought I could just go to Delta and buy a set of
wood guides for the 28-350 which is almost the same saw but strictly
wood. The lower guide has a price tag of $1,280 and the upper is around
$300. Looks like I'll be sticking with the stacked metal for now.
This beauty came with a blade welder, about 400' of various blade stock
and a 3ph and 1ph motor. Unfortunately they're both 1HP and I'll
probably be replacing it with a 2-3HP right away but it's still a great
deal I think.
If anyone is familiar with these old Deltas I'd appreciate hearing from you.
