I just finished restoring a model 34-220 type 1 Delta Rockwell 6 inch jointer that I rescued from a school discard. I made the base from 3/4in Baltic Birch used two 10 by 10 wall registers for vents that work as access to the motor, electrical and bolting of the jointer. Had to order a jet hand handwheel that was missing and a jet blade guard spring that was broken. This model is similar to my 6in Jet jointer. Used a 1/2in radius on the outside of the cabinet and painted it machinery grey to give it the enclosed metal stand look. Used 6in by 6in abs dust chute and reduced it to a shop vac hose for the dust collection rather than make a metal or wood dust chute. The base is on 2 1/2 in locking caster for mobility.
