Blade tensioning threaded shaft and nut on my Delta 28-280 Band Saw are stripped and I have not been able to find replacement parts online. Anyone had this problem, and, if so, any luck in finding replacement parts. Part 24, Knob Assembly, No. 426-02-412-0008 in particular seems to no longer be manufactured.

If you can’t find an OEM replacement from the various aftermarket suppliers or flea-bay, you can always just replace it with a piece of 3/8”-16tpi all thread. How to work out the handle portion will need a bit of tinkering, but I can think of several different ways to do it – from using recycled milk jugs (HDPE), on up through making it functional with a 3/8” ratchet.

The handle I can handle! I think the square nut is available online.

Thank you for the assistance.

for an old jig i had i needed some square nuts, so i just bought some 1/4’’ steel, drilled the holes, tapped them and cut them out for square nuts, was a bit of work, but kept me from burning up the tires and the internet looking for them, and one can’t hardly tell difference
best of luck, hate it when delta doesn’t support the older stuff.

I’ve have great luck with eBay as well.

Are you still looking for these parts?

I replaced mine with this LINK

I can look in the garage and see if I can find the parts that I took off the saw.

Have your say...
