So for anyone who has seen this post on Lumberjocks, I appologize, just haven't had a lot of responses, or maybe everyone just agrees with the one.
Ok, so this Delta/Rockwell 6Ē jointer was posted on CL and I thought since I canít buy a new one, this would be a good one to get me going with not a terrible amount of effort to get it at least operating. I haven't finished my table saw projects, but didn't want to pass this up. I believe itís this one, Delta Jointer 6 Inch
, but not sure since it doesnít have the info plate attached. If you happen to know the model Iíd appreciate any info you have. All thatís stamped on it is NJ 203 under the wings.
Just looking for some advice on getting it looking good again. I have both a soda and sand blaster, which I havenít actually put to use because I have to put my compressor back together, but would that be the way to go first? What about sanding the whole table, just worried about having something big and flat enough to get the whole thing.
Can anyone tell me whatís missing? Iíll point out the obvious and save you some jokes at my expense :-).
2: one table tilt handle
3: Motor and stand
4: Fence, the big one, ones I saw on ebay that looked like they were the correct ones were crazy high. If anyone knows of one that can either be fabricated, or a good way to make one myself to get by, that would be great.
Also, I'll probably be getting a used and abused 4 1/2" small one with motor and stand from someone soon, but it's heavily rusted and will be a good bit of work. I understand the reasonings of X number of dollars for this + X number of dollars for that and so on leading to a new one being a better option. But first, I don't have the money upfront like that, and two, I like bringing old stuff back to life, it just doesn't need to interfere with projects that can make me money.
Sorry for the picture quality, they were taken from my cheap cell out in the shed late at night. I can post better
