Delta 14-inch 1 HP Steel Frame Band Saw Preview


State-of-the-Art Features That Woodworkers Will Appreciate

Anderson, SC, February 17, 2012 – DELTA®Power Equipment Corporation, a designer and manufacturer of bench-top and stationary woodworking machinery and dust management systems, is introducing an all new 14-inch, 1 HP Steel Frame Band Saw, Model 28-400. This new Delta® band saw has been designed for today’s serious woodworker.

The new 28-400 features a 1 HP, 115V/230V, 1 phase TEFC motor with 2 speeds (1,620 FPM and 3,340 FPM). It has a heavy duty steel frame design that reduces flexing. And it comes with a superior finish and heavy duty trunnion table support for long-lasting durability.

The new Delta® 14-inch Band Saw has a two-speed pulley with easy tensioning system to make speed changes simple, and its durable aluminum, rubber-tired upper and lower 9-spoke wheels are precision balanced for superior blade tracking. Its poly V-belt drive provides for smooth operation, consistent power transfer and will not “take a set” when left under tension.

Its smooth ball bearing upper and lower guides ensure superior blade accuracy and performance with a maximum cutting capacity of up to 13-5/8 inches wide x 6 inches thick. The oversized 15-3/4 inch x 18-7/8 inch precision ground cast iron table tilts 3° left to 45° right with a positive stop at 90°. It has a standard size t-slot that accepts all 3/4 inch x 3/8 inch miter gauges.

It is designed with a large table insert for visibility when changing lower guide settings, has a dust brush on the lower wheel to keep the blade clean during use, and a special knob design on upper and lower doors helps prevent injury by forcing the doors completely open or securely closed.

The 28-400 includes a 4 inch integral dust port, steel stand and a 93-1/2 inch wood-cutting blade. Available accessories, sold separately, include a Deluxe Miter Gauge, Model 34-928 and a Magnetic Work Light, Model 25-870. It will also accept the 12 inch and 24 inch fence systems, Models 28-848 and 28-856.

The new Delta® 14-inch, 1 HP Steel Frame Band Saw will be available at dealers in March 2012 and has a suggested retail price of $629.99, and is backed by a Five-Year Warranty. For more information, customers can visit or write to Join DELTA® on Facebook at .
