Delta 28-400 14-Inch Band saw My brand fresh wood-shop finally features a band saw and it has the newly released band saw by Delta, version 28-400 which simplifies an old 28-280. This can be just really actually a band saw having a high quality 1 HP motor and a look in comparison with the style band saws out of Delta.

Specifications

No real surprise but it’s well worth pointing outside. Delta has assembled a shop tool using commercial grade layout and style and also quality materials. The component All fits together nicely throughout fabrication. The rack is made from powder coated steel that was simple to build.

The cast iron dining table shirt includes a large, very flat, smooth glossy coating. I discovered that the top to be of equal caliber for my UniSaw (that will be very excellent!). This appears to be a wonderful upgrade when compared with reviews that I have find out.

Total I am quite delighted about the high quality and”bulk” of these substances. All of them subscribe that individuals could reach with all the best band saws.

Table

Delta 28-400 Band saw Table Tilt As mentioned previously I feel that the castiron dining table is machined well with an extremely flat smooth coating. The miter slot machine is also nicely machined and takes all frequent miter indicators (3/8″ along with 3/4″). While this version will not include a miter gauge that I managed to utilize my Delta UniSaw miter judge on the dining table.
The dining table readily tilts allowing bevel cuts. The dining table has a simple to browse angle estimate because it is possible to view in the photo that is adjoining, mounted underneath the dining table.

Among the main elements to get a band saw will be the blade manuals. Precision ball bearing roller guides above and below is offered by the Delta 28-400.

The top manuals are super simple to correct and so they stay set. They are simple to fix since they utilize one twist to lock them When you look at the photo. They’re somewhat more difficult to accomplish under the desk although the blade guides work exactly the exact identical manner. It only requires a couple of minutes to correct them all and maintain the blade in amazing form once you are knowledgeable about the manuals.

The 28-400 uses aluminum spoke wheels using a rubberized coating to catch the blade. The wheels are simple to fix and bend with a higher level of accuracy. I am told cast iron wheels tend to be more preferable by a few users however I am not sure there exists a demand to get a band saw at the price point and size.

Vacuum

The 28-400 includes a sizable 4″ diameter dust collection jack on the trunk facet of this cupboard adjacent to the engine. So that it can maintain debris off the rubber 21, it’s located in the base of the wheel casing. Suck dust is helped by holes at the desk plate down far from the cut zone.

The dust collection extends about 90 percent of this dust. That is a shop tool that has to link to your dust collection method. I would suggest you never get this unit because there is room for that dust In the event you never have one.

The engine is smooth and silent. I am deploying it powered by 115 volts and experienced no power issues. The capacity can be actually really just a wonderful option when power is necessary.

Functionality

I have been utilizing the Delta 28-400 14″ Band saw for many months today on many different endeavors. I have used it for cutting edge curves, cutting small bits, also sawing larger timber. Once the band saw was installation I was ready to generate all sorts of unique cuts with outcomes that are great. The band saw had lots of power even if sawing larger items of timber.

Once it regards sawing this version has lots of power however you’re confined by a part of timber 6 inches tall. Personally it’s is just a limit which needs to be viewed while this is not a deal breaker for me personally. Having stated that I am unsure you will discover a great a number of band saws within such a type which could saw bigger bits of timber.

The 28-400 includes a 1/2″ timber cutting edge blade. Besides this you should need to order accessories extra for the band saw.

Travels

The Delta 28-400 can be really just actually a really well constructed band saw fit for virtually any wood shop. Being a 14″ model it is actually an excellent choice for small and medium size stores where store space is still tight. This version is an ideal fit for the shop that is tight. Whenever you believe this band saw is priced approximately $650 it has really a fantastic price and a excellent purchase.

My single word of warning is to get people expecting to saw bigger pieces of timber. I would advise that you have a take a look at a version, if that is your attention then.
