changing my new found 37-600 1970’s rockwell/delta jointer from 220v to 110v.
I’m glad there was a wiring schematic on the cover :)
as it stands now, i only have 110v in my shop. one day, some 220v outlets but for now….

The changeover from 220 to 110 should be good with that the machine, the original jointer came with a
110 volt 1/2HP motor. The nicest thing about that jointer is that the fence pivots and is set from the
center instead of the end, making it more stable and accurate than the ones set from the end. Just my
own opinion of course, not fact.

i do not think this is the original motor. as this Dayton motor looks nearly brand new (at least, barely used). and it’s 1 HP, not the standard 1/2 HP. I looked for the model number online (needed to verify wiring schematic). the motor alone sells for $300 at Grainger. I purchased this jointer with stand for $60. There is a little rust on the infeed table I have to figure out how to take care of. Maybe, even repaint all this cast iron.

After i get the insulation in my garage workshop all straightened out :) 972 things to do… one at a time.
