Eek! I have to ask. Is that with, or without dust collection?

I would suggest you buy an extractor mine really removes this stuff by about 95% My dust bag fills up beautifully I and never have a problem with it.That could cause a serious damage to your motor plus a fire risk. Alistair

That is without dust collection, which I’ve never fancied made sense for a jointer. It seems much easier to empty the box at the end of the chute than to dump the 55 gal. barrel.

That said, DC on a jointer might prevent the bulk of stuff falling down in. However, I think some effluvia always would so at some point, given the kind of neglect I have so dramatically demonstrated, there would be an accumulation.

The access door on this tool is not easy to get to—the tool has to be moved. But I shall flop it open and stick a vacuum hose down in there periodically in a continuing effort not to become a front page statistic.

I notice that when changing to a dado set on my tablesaw.
So now I vaccuum the inside every month.

Heh, heh! I got the T-shirt as well! Actually had to take the motor out to clean it properly. Still has a little noise, new bearing needed soon.

I am Glad I have a good dust collection system. It is Still necessary to check the for corner build up inside the tools occasionally. You are fortunate that your motod didn’t overheat.

Set aside a specific day to clean out your machines. Each holiday seems to work for a friend of mine. Every holiday weekend he gets the garbage bags out.

Wow Lee, that is a nicely insulated motor you have there, I bet it holds the heat in very well :)

My table saw looks like this right. I fact, my whole shop needs cleaning. I guess I will look inside the jointer too.
Thanks, Robert

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!
