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 benchtop 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 .

    Looking forward to reading more about this saw. Looks to be really capable. I’d love to do some re-sawing with it. I really like what the new Delta is doing.

      Jeff – I went on a tour of their new facility in SC. The changes you are seeing are a direct result of the new management. Those folks have a real love and passion for woodworking. Quite the opposite of the last ownership. I’m certain you’ll see lots more in the coming year as they continue to build back their offering.
