Delta JT160 Jointer Shaving’s Catcher.
I made this from 3mm PVC plastic sign board. I hang a grocery bag on it and it collects the shavings that fall down the shoot when jointing. I didn’t have a vac port adapter for my planer and they want way too much money for one so I came up with this idea to catch the wood shaving’s. The thing works great. Just wish I had a better jointer. If your jointer is cutting like it should you don’t need a vac. All you need is a place to collect the shavings. I don’t do a ton of jointing so this fits the bill just right for me. If you want to make one I’ll post a two .jpg file’s that you can print and make a pattern. One full half view and a mirror half to print on 8.5 X 11 standard letter size paper. You’ll have to find a piece of 3mm pvc sign board 22”X 7 1/2”. Let me know and I’ll draw it up.
Thanks for all the great comments!
I have a few of these made up. For a small fee I’ll send you one Just PM me.
The email address on the print is no longer in use.
If you want to make one for your Delta JT160 or 37-070 jointer, print the two pattern files to make a pattern.
