The other weekend I was driving through my neighborhood and I noticed a small pile of “junk” on the side of the road in front of a house that was just going on the market. Looked like someone had cleaned out the garage. I cruised by slow eyeing the pile for anything interesting and, just as I was about to pass the pile, I noticed out of the corner my eye in the back a 9" Delta Benchtop bandsaw (28-150). I knew exactly what it was because I have almost the same model in my shop. Stopped and looked at it and it was missing somethings and looked like it had gotten wet. Threw it in the back of the truck for at least spare parts for my bandsaw.
Took a good look at it later and it was missing the power switch, power cable, the front and back switch box panels, a motor run capacitor that lived in the switch box. and the table tilt adjustment knob. Also has a broken door latch and some general corrosion. As long as the motor still worked it looked salvageable.
I looked through my supplies and found a toggle switch that would work and an extra power cord. Delta doesn’t make these benchtop bandsaws any more, but I was able to locate a replacement run capacitor of the right specifications on amazon for $8 shipped. Didn’t want to put too much work into it until I knew the motor was all right. The capacitor arrived today and I wired up the motor and it ran fine. So let the work begin.
This capacitor was listed for a ceiling fan on Amazon but it is the exact same one used in delta bench top bandsaws.
