This is why I trust Delta machinery :) I hope I am not coming off as a brand snob but this jointer is over 36 years old, AND STILL RUNNING ON THE ORIGINAL KNIVES TO BOOT!!!!!!
I picked this up this spring from a guy at work who was getting rid of his shop and moving into a condo for $100 and with only the cord needing replaced from dry rot and rust from being in the basement it performs like it did coming out of the box :) Adding to this Parts are still available along with the Owners manual and the parts are cheaper than for the new ones!!!! weighing in at 400 pounds it matches my bandsaws & tablesaws weight !!!
I think it was worthy of a review and a rating of five stars especially when the machine is older than me LOL !!!
If you happen to run upon one get it You can’t go wrong :) BTW having a 18”x48” footprint is an added plus in my small shop.
