this is a picture of a jointer like the one that i purchased recently for 100 dollars. I also got a craftmaster 8 inch table saw included with it. It was painted black and the paint was bad. I used easy off oven cleaner to remove the paint but it also removed some of the factory paint as well. Any body have any advice as to what to use so that it doesn’t do that?

Good find! I need to run across something like this sometime soon! I am sure someone will chime in with a paint suggestion.

I can’t help with that question. If the paint is bad why not take it all off and recoat? I’d use the automotive stripper and get it to the metal, coat it in rust inhibitor, primer and machinery paint.
Nice find.

Do what Rex said, then go to an auto supply and check out their engine enamel.

I agree that it’s best to strip it entirely and start fresh. at the same time, the paint that was put on can likely be removed with acetone, while the original finish is probably a catalyzed enamel (like epoxy) that cannot be removed with acetone. Oven cleaner or paint stripper is a caustic solution that dissolves all organics, so it doesn’t discriminate.

good find, btw. is that an 8” or 10” bed?

very nice, the older stuff is much easier to take care of than new stuff. ..I have a 10” craftsman tablesaw,,,it’s old, heavy and great for what I want. I wouldn’t trade mine for any of the portable TS’s on the maket today.

Nice find. I have a small 4” Delta Homecraft jointer from the same era. They’re very good quality. Looks like you have the whole set up. That’s awesome.

You can get automotive epoxy paint in a rattle can. That stuff is durable….

One trick I learned when painting metal – use white vinegar to wipe it down just before painting. After it dries, apply paint. The paint will adhere to the metal better.

this is a picture of a jointer like the one that i purchased
So this isn’t actually your jointer is what you’re saying…. Your title is misleading.
Did you get the original stand with the one that you purchased ?

no this isn’t the actual machine that i bought, but it is in as good as shape as this one. It is very usable as it is though. No I didn’t get the stand with it, would love to find one but I don’t think it is very likely. The guy I bought it off of has a Parks 12 inch jointer/ planer combo. I was thinking of buying it as well but i just couldn’t justify having it.

Great find. My father had the exact set up shown in the picture as an example. It was a Delta. Great unit, one of my older brothers still uses it
