Refined over many years, Delta's original 14 inch bandsaw was a classic shop tool. Unfortunately, the new Delta 14" saw isn't at all similar. Anyone saying that has never taken a brief look to note the differences. Instead of a cast iron frame, the new saw is welded steel with no option for a riser block. The upper blade guide is completely different, and fits so sloppy in its track, it shifts back and forth - a lot. Without an extra washer, the upper wheel can rub on the internal part of the guide assembly, causing a grinding noise. The worst problem is the plastic table insert, which makes this an extremely dangerous tool, and one to avoid at all costs. Instead of the small round original insert, this insert is large and long. Because it bridges a much larger opening, it should be beefed up with thicker stronger material, like steel. Instead, it is molded from thin plastic, and full of holes which weaken it. When cutting small pieces, the insert has a tendency to bend downwards. This allows smaller work pieces to shift, kinking and bending the blade. As a result, the saw has a tendency to suck the work right down through the insert in an instant. If your hand is on top of the work and the guide is too high, your fingers can be shoved into a moving blade. Hopefully if this happens, you're not using a coarse cutting blade with 3 teeth per inch, because this saw has a powerful motor which doesn't stop easily. So, how do I know all this? I ordered a 14" bandsaw from a small local tool supplier. Imagine my surprise when I saw what arrived. Since the store owner is a friend, I accepted a tool I didn't really want. Fortunately, my guide was set low, and I wasn't hurt when the blade sucked a work piece through the table insert. But no table inserts are available, so the saw remains unusable. Because of this, I'm returning the saw to Delta. I can't in good conscience sell it, because it is so dangerous. By the way, this saw is Delta in name only, because when Stanley sold the Delta name and logo, it didn't sell the parts inventory or the original Delta tool designs. And for a long time, they haven't shipped any parts for any Delta band saws. However, several online parts houses stock them. It looks like Stanley sold the name and logo to one company, while selling the parts to other suppliers.
