    Band Saw Identification ( pic only)

    This saw will sell at auction and I would like to identify the brand if possible and the vintage would be a plus too. The only clue I have is one of the blade boxs to the right of the saw has what looks like the word Delta on it but that really doesn't mean much I guess. thanks, bob

    'zat their pic or yours? Looks like there's a logo on the front in red, so I'm assuming theirs. Kinda looks like an old Craftsman (dad had one like that), but that's a guess on a 20 YO memory, so I think you can figure what its worth

    Looks like a nice old machine, whatever the manufacturer.

    My best guess is Delta. Looks like the old standby Delta gray paint. If you can tell if it has been repainted, I'm still guessing Delta.

    Bob,

    Swing on over to owwm.com and take a look under Delta at the 10" bandsaws. You'll find a few siblings for that one real quick.

    Good Luck

    Bob,

    Looks like a Delta Homecraft 10" circa 1950.

    Homecraft was/is my guess too.

    yep, 10" delta Homecraft, late 40's early 50's vintage. Handy little buggers too! Refurbed one with the intent of selling it, but I quickly fell in love with it and kept it because it's so darn handy. I keep a small blade on it for fine scroll work and all those quickly cuts when I don't want to fire up the full size BS or TS.

    The bandsaw auctioned today and indeed it is a Delta Homecraft. And now it and 6 new blades are in my pickup truck. I'll be searching for two tires that aren't cracked and possibly an owners/parts manual. Thanks for all the info. Bob

    Congrats on the saw. I see original Delta blade boxes there too.

    Here is a link to some good info on restoring bandsaws. There are a couple on there about replacing bandsaw tires. There is a bit more to it than it looks. Just scroll down to Bandsaws.
