I have got something to ask someone about Delta's new
10" Band saw(#BS150LS).
The web of Delta says the maximum blade width can be mounted
is 1/2", on the other hand the manual of BS150LS says the maximum
blade width is 3/8". Which is correct?
Thanks in advance,
I don't know which they claim. In my experience mounting a half inch
blade on such a small saw would prove difficult. With the larger blades
getting and keeping tension on the blade is a concern, as there is
usually some amount of flex in the frame of the saw. I have a 14"
Grizzly bandsaw and find it has a hardtime handling the 1/2" blade
Hope that helps somewhat.
I've got a 3/8" blade in my delta 9" bandsaw, and that's as big as it
will reasonably accept. I don't know how much bigger the 10" model
is, but I would imagine a 1/2" would be really pushing it.
Aut inveniam viam aut faciam
I have used all sizes of blades in my Delta 36-295 BS. I prefer a 1/4"
or a 3/16" low tension with a Cater guide bearing.
