Question about the Delta 22-590 planer

Watching Craig’s List finally paid off. I found a Delta 22-590 planer in almost new shape for $250 at a pawn. I’ve never dealt with a pawn shop before, and this was a pleasant experience.

My only concern is it really spits out the wood chips and would like a dust hood for it. I cannot see one listed as an accessory for this model. How has anyone here solved the problem with their Delta?

Thanks in advance, John

They should have one to buy as an accessory. This pic shows one attached.

Here’s a parts site that shows 2 models.

You might be able to rig one up using a shop vach attachment and a bit of creative sheet metal work.

John,

I made my own dust collection for my planer. It’s not a Delta, but it is similar. I’m not a sheet-metal worker but I was able to bend some sheet-metal, cut a hole in it, and attach a 4” port. It works extremely well (better than most of the factory-built dust collection on my machines). I get about a quart of sawdust on the floor and 30 gallons in the dust collector!

I’ll post a picture of it if you’re interested. Let me know and I’ll photograph it.

John,

I’m sorry that this has taken so long to post but with dial-up and one phone line, I don’t spend time on the internet until everyone with any sense has gone to bed! ;-)

I used some sheet metal that I had that was a little heavier and just bent it with a hammer over the edge of a 2×4, then cut a four-inch hole in the center of the top. Because the edges I cut were somewhat sharp on the bottom, I put duct tape over them to keep from cutting myself (it’s looking pretty ragged now). I removed the part (shield) on the back that came with the planer and used the same holes to screw this on. The plastic dust port is attached with double stick tape (the kind with foam that’s virtually impossible to remove if you want to take it apart). I made the edges come down just so the board clears to get as much suction as possible.

My planer can handle thicknesses to six inches, but with the dust hose attached I can’t do over about four inches. I virtually never do anything over two inches so that isn’t a problem for me, but if you want to plane thick lumber, you might consider that drawback.

I made this 15+ years ago so I don’t remember all the details. I’m sure I probably enlisted my husband’s expertise and assistance as well. I hope this might help you. If you have questions, don’t be afraid to ask (not that I’ll have answers). ;-)

that planer is supposed to come with one built in so the only way to get it is to look at the part# in your manual and order it from delta.

Great deal! :) I just purchased my first planer yesterday from Lowe’s. Picked up the DeWalt 734. They lowered the price recently and I was able to talk them into taking a 10% coupon from my email on my phone just by looking at it. It’s amazing the new doors that a planer will open! :)
