How old? Twenty-two years ago I acquired an old Milwaukee Delta 14" saw
and wrote to Delta who mailed me a parts list and manual along with the
information that my saw was produced around 1944-45.
I'd try them or www.owwm.com and see if they have what you need.
If you strike out there and your machine is around the same vintage as
mine, e-mail me off-list and I'll scan and mail you a copy of what I have.
Heh...love your handle...got a few of those yet myself.
About the bandsaw manual, what's the model number? I have a Rockwell 14
(as do, probably, half the group?) and would be happy to scan some stuff
if you can't find any other source. You do know that Delta has online
parts manuals, yes?
I learned here rockwell became delta. I did find a parts breakdown diagram
online. But I was hoping to find a manual to tell me how to set it up and
service it and stuff. its 28-243 s/n number is 85c06223.
Trash 80. I actually never owne one. But I did have a Atari computer at
the time. I remember moving up to a PC with whoppin 10meg hard drive. That
Well, it was an Altair 680, but yeah. Still haven't forgiven the idiot
who borrowed it and then left it in an UNHEATED GARAGE WITH A LEAKING
ROOF for a year. Bastard.
Dave "Do you have any idea what that would eBay for?" Hinz
Sorry about the 'puter, Dude. <G>
Want a box of old Heathkit/ZDS boards?
Hmm.. I may have the wrong brand. I think it was made by SWTP in
Texas, and was sorta the first kit computer. Didn't do squat - the
show demo consisted of making a radio whistle a tune. Programmed it
with toggles. Something 1000 anyway...
Or I could be completely mistaken... ;-)
I'm still pissed about that, 15 years later. And he knows it.
I'm in a "get rid of crap" mode right now, but I'll keep you in mind if
I run short...
Well, there's the IMSAI, and the SWTPC, the latter being from Texas or
thereabouts. Seriously, if you've got parts, check eBay as they may be
going for rather alot, especially tested. I could be wrong, it's very
That's my line. Get your own.
Dave "Or maybe not?" Hinz
No, I'm, er, calling the stuff I'm selling on eBay crap. Wait, that's
not right, I'm saying the stuff I'm _not_ selling on eBay is crap. No,
that's not right either.
HOw about this...there are people who are selling crap, much like the
_stuff_ I have, on eBay. Yeah, I think that's it. But my crap is
Seriously, check out eBay. If you don't have a seller's account, maybe
we could work some sort of deal and I could sell the stuff for you? If
it's worth anything.
That's why I have most of the crap I have. Stuff, I mean.
Well, seriously, it's good stuff, I just will never use it. I've got a
couple of Omega 0.25% accurate pressure gauges. They go for several
hundred bucks each new, I fished them out of a salvage skid before they
were thrown away. They're fine. I have NO use for them,but someone
does. I'll get those on eBay one of these days. Big honking 6"
diameter pressure gauges, beautiful mechanisms, worth something to
someone. Too good to pay to throw away, not useful to me. I've started
selling off stuff like that to finance buying toys that I do want,
something I will use.
I've got tons of extra collets, too. Low value, but high volume. I've
got 5 or 6 of each of several sizes. I need one of each, not 6 of each.
Those will probably go on eBay too. Thing is, I can always buy one just
like it if I do screw up and sell something that I find out later I
Kind of like the framing nailer I sold a month ago or so. 100 bucks for
a Senco isn't bad for either of us, he's getting use out of it, and I
wasn't. If I ever need a framing nailer again, I'll go to eBay, buy one
for about that much, and sell it for the same when I'm done. Or not.
But this way the other guy gets to use the tool, that 100 bucks turned
into something that I'm actually using, and we all come out ahead.
The good stuff that I'm not using, is more use in someone else's
basement. It's time consuming and at some point I'm going to regret
selling _something_, but with eBay, I can always find one just like it,
or nicer, if I turn out to have screwed up.
Have to take a look...
Would it look good in the rack above or below my 556?
Maybe we could _swap_ crap. Then we both get all new crap to play with.
Here is an example:
Just haven't made the time to sort through 10 gazillion baseball cards
(don't ask) and all the other cra^H^H^H stuff to list it.
If I do, it'll probably be a bulk lot of... uhh... stuff.
