Old Delta Band saw help. and Gloat


I just recieved a Delta band saw and am trying to get some information for it. I was told it was made in the 1950-60's It is cast iron. Probably industrial model as it is large. The distance from the bottom of the lower wheel to the top of the upper wheel is 41 inches. I was given the saw for free because the man's wife wanted to park in the garage and he has never used it. It belonged to his grandfather. Where can I get info on this saw.
He also tried to sell me a Craftsman 12" wood lathe, model # 113 23800 and ended up giving it to me when I told him I wouldn't pay money for it.

Gee... free bandsaw and a free lathe and now you want others to tell you where to try and find free information. Try Delta and Sears. The BS will have a model number and a serial number. Delta may even send you a free manual after you dial their toll-free number. Now would you like someone to tell you how to use the tools too...?

power tools before. I didn't know about Sears, thanks for that. I searched Delta's site and couldn't find information for a saw this old. I will try Sears and try not to bother you again.
Thanks

Don,
Okay, now I believe that you are not a troll - here's some info you may want to try.
http://www.deltamachinery.com / http://www.owwm.com /
Plus there's an old codger that hangs around these parts that knows a thing or two about old iron (especially Delta) and if you have the model and serial number, he can probably tell you the day it was assembled and by whom... Goes by the name of UA100 now but has been known by many others - some of which are not nice to print so I understand.......
As for the lathe, go here http://www3.sears.com/ type in the model number and follow the link. Type in "manual" and it will show a part number (70017) which you should/maybe can order.
No problem,
Bob S.

Thank you for that. I've never been accused of being a troll. I will post pictures to a.b.p.w. and appreciate all the information I get.

Ahh, nothing wrong with being called a troll once in awhile. What really ranks though is when someone like JT calls you polite. Now, that really hurts.
