Review

Pluses:  The steel-block blade guides performed well in our curve-cutting tests, even with the 6" riser block installed.
Two speed settings provide you the option of slowing the blade speed for cutting nonferrous metal, such as brass or aluminum. Minuses:  The 28-206 lacks the oomph of most other 14" bandsaws, especially when resawing wide stock with the riser block installed. Setting the proper blade tension proved difficult because the saw’s scale was so far off we could not use it. When we compared it to 7 other 14" bandsaws, this saw vibrated more than any other, its blade deflected the most (slightly more than 1⁄32"), and its dust collection proved inadequate. It does not come with a rip fence, and Delta does not offer one as an option. And, the motor eats up potential storage space in the lower cabinet.
