« Part 9: Some Assembly Required Part 10 of From Rust to Lust, can I bring it back? series Part 11: These bearings cost HOW MUCH?! »

Just need the new bearings and the knives sharpened, hopefully chips flying by the end of next week! Oh, and I need to make a back door yet. It grew wheels. Got the set of pullers from Harbor Freight yesterday, 4 different sizes, $25, works great. Got the casters from HF too, had to drill out the prexisting 3/8” holes to 1/2” to accomadate the casters. Two locking in the front and two freely moving on the back.

Pullers and head with bearings

Somethings missing…

Looks great.
I have a older Jointer also. I did not like the way the wood looked after I ran it over the knifes. Saw a advertisement in Grizzly for sprial cutter heads. They did not what I needed, but the Byrd Tool Company did. They worked with me on the size I needed and the bearing I needed. They installed the bearings and it worked out great. Not hard to change. The machine is quieter and leaves a very smooth surface, which I like. Nice people to work with. They are a USA company.

Those spiral heads look awesome, all though for right now I’ll try the knives since the spiral for mine is $350 (Cheapest of all of them) and would be trippleing my investment with this thing. Someday, someday..
