no previous part Part 1 of Tools series Part 2: $65 Radial Arm Saw!!!!! »

I picked up this used Delta Jointer off of craigslist for $115. Seems like a good deal! I need to get some push blocks (the guy had lost his). I think the blades need to be sharpened, I’ll do some reasearch on that next!

Not a bad price for a variable speed. Have the same jointer. Blades are throwaways . New ones cost about 20. Mine does what I want it to and no complaints so far.

So how do I know for sure that I need new/ sharpened blades?

I went to town on a scrap piece of ceder last night….. Seemed to do a nice job, but i’m not sure exactly what i’m looking for…..
