Thank you and others for the explanations on the above topic. It is
very helpful. I was offered a "Delta 28-263 Platinum Edition, ball
bearing guides, 20 amperes, about 4 yrs old and mint conditions." I
have not seen the bandsaw. I assumed it was an American made maybe
with some imported components, (maybe) with Charter's guides and 1hp
motor. I plan to upgrade to 1-1/2hp, 14" raisers and others components
from Iturra. I would have preferred a pre 60's editions. I have a few
more questions; Are "all" the components interchangeable from others
Delta? How about the bearing and steel wheels and most important to
Thank you again.
I sold my G0555 with a 14" riser, now looking for a used Delta. Almost
everyone speaks highly of Grizzly G0555 and I for one does not fully
agree. The Grizzly bandsaw guide rod very flimsy and it does not
always line up with the blades properly. After 1-1/2 years sparingly
used, the motor started to make "click, click" sound when you start
the bandsaw. Lastly, getting a replacement 1-1/2hp motor would be
impossible other than buying from Grizzly as the motor shaft is longer
that what is available in the aftermarket.

I wandered an hour up the road a bit today. Went to the tool supply
place to look around, they recently started to sell Steel City tools,
the 20 inch bandsaw for about $1300 stared at me for awhile. Did not
run it, but it looks nice.
