I have a new band saw that was dream come true. My first one and it is a Delta/Rockwell 28-350 with a 3 phase 1 hp original motor. I am guessing from the late 50’s or early 60’s. l am in just a tad over my head. I nearly got a hernia getting this into the truck with a friend but worth the effort. First, I yanked the motor and it is in the shop and if it is good I will buy a VFD so it converts to 110 house current. The upper thrust bearing and side blocks are fine but the lower thrust bearing does not ride smooth but I am working on it with WD-40. All upper wheel adjustments are free and easy to use but the upper wheel when spun by hand is noisy and grindy sounding as it goes around in spots. I know this needs work and I have looked at the parts list and I have a general idea. The upper wheel has two set screws close to one another and I know I can get the wheel off. From there, I don’‘t now which end to start with to replace the bearings. I was hoping to find something on Youtube but to no avail. I see the name of the parts on the parts list but it does not provide step by step instructions. I have read all the posts and it is clear that some of you could do this blind- folded. I can rebuild an engine and I still do my own car breaks and mechanical work. I just don’t want to mess this up and could use some advice.

Have your say...
