I'm looking at a used saw to buy that the guys is saying it is a 28-299 but
on the top of the saw it says 28-212. The base says 50-274. There is no
28-299 to be found on the saw.
It has everything the 28-299 is supposed to have. I'm thinking it is the
28-299 but I'm just curious if anyone here has an idea on the Delta
numbering for the 28-299.
It has mobile base 50-274 as the 28-299 is supposed to have too. The manual
the guy got with the saw is for the 28-293 & 28-299.
It all sounds like a 28-299.
What's the HP? Is the trunnion cast iron, or aluminum? If it's 1HP, with a
cast iron trunnion, and judging from the rest of your description, I'd bet
that you got a 28-299 on your hands.
If so, and the price is right, don't hesitate, buy it! From what I've seen
at the local Delta dealers, it may be the last decent bandsaw Delta made.
The trunnion support assembly looks to be cast iron with the black on it.
But the trunnions attached to the table appear to be cast aluminum. The saw
runs smooth. I get a good feeling about it. Price is $475 no tax.
Who cares what the part number is, do you like the saw and is it at a good
Delta part numbers are almost impossible to follow, one part # for the base
plus one part # for the upper machine equal a third # that the machine is
known by, but not printed on either item.
28-299 is a USA made 1hp 14" bandsaw, standard issue.
