Default One Man's Trash...

Is another Woman's Treasure lol

Ken called me at work last week and says " 6" Delta Jointer Yes or No?" Well, that was a stupid question! He brought it home, plugged it in, and lo' n' behold, it whirred right up. The Fence Bracket was technically broken, but Ken said he could secure that with a bolt. Can't get a new one, but with the bolt Ken put in, it's holding.

While playing with it yesterday, we smelled the belt on it getting warm, we I have to look for a belt for it. Hoping I can get one, because when I tried to find other parts, Delta no longer offered them. If it only lasts a little while, well, I'll have had one for a time, anyway, until I can get another one, right?

Take the belt to an auto supply house who should be able match it for you. Or, consider a link belt. They run quieter and last longer. I've been running the one I linked above for 15 years.

As far as the belt, see if there is a tractor supply near you. You may have better luck.

They don't have of the parts, either. That was the first place I tried soon as Delta said it was no longer available. Sucks, but maybe I'll find it in an obscure place (EBay, Craigslist, etc.)

Barb...congrats on your acquisition...

When you take the belt off, make sure the head moves smoothly...just to make sure it's the belt that is failing and not the parts giving it resistance.

And make sure the pulley's are clean in the groove...somebody may have use some belt dressing on it and left some "goop"...

Good luck with it...

Thanks, Nick. Will do. And dbl thanks for the manual. However, it's the wrong model. I can't seem to find mine. (I'm cheating; working and playing at work.)

Do as Nick says and check to see that the head moves freely. The bearings are replaceable and available from any industrial supply that supplies power transmission parts (belts, pulleys, sprockets, chains, etc). There may be an adjustment under the casting that allows to tighten the belt. You can turn it upside down to work on it. Just sit ot on some blocks about half way to the ends to keep it off the guard and cutter head. The guard should come off easily too. They do that so that you can use them to cut rabbets with. A jointer is the fastest machine I know of to make rabbets.

You also need push blocks to operate it safely. The standard ones that comes with jointers are garbage in my opinion and dangerous at the worst. Make one of your own at least for the pusher block. It should have a 1/4" cleat hanging down to make sure you have positive engagement of your work piece as you push it over the blades.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
