Sometimes it's quite surprising what you find on the internet . . . While looking for something else, I saw this photo, simply listed as a 'HD Bandsaw'. No other photos were posted, so I contacted one of my fellow 'Deltaholics' and we came to the conclusion that this was an early 14" Delta Milwaukee band saw. Why early? Check out the metal wheel guard knobs, 'old style' fence, and the welded leg stand. Our hunch paid off and this saw turned out to be a pre-serial number model with all of the decals (two on the saw and two on the stand), sadly faded but original paint, cast iron six spoke wheels, and an early Baldor motor. The auctioneer said that the previous owner was a "big equipment mechanic in his 70's who worked on all kinds of large equipment up in North Eastern PA . . ."

**UPDATE** 2/22/2019: Scroll down to photos 2 & 3 to see the early Baldor Repulsion-Induction motor and brass tag.
