Review of DELTA X5 6" Professional Jointer

Review of DELTA X5 6" Professional Jointer

07-25-2011 09:40 PM by Delta356 | 12 comments »

After my little Craftsman 4” jointer died, circ 1951, I decided to up grade. I looked at a lot of brands and me being a big Delta fan I decided to go with there DeltaX5 6” professional jointer.This machine comes in two boxes one contains the motor/stand, and other goodies. The other box has the jointer and fence system. Once again I have to deal with a heavy Delta box. The machine took about an hour to put together.. One thing that is nice is Delta already mounts the motor, and t...

New Jointer

New Jointer

Got me a new DJ-20 to replace my 6” Ridgid. To me it’s a small aircraft carrier.I’ve not had much luck with Delta tools the last few years but decided to go with a Delta again over a General and King.Out of the 2 crates the tables were flat and in line with each other and the fence was perfect.Paint job isn’t the greatest but if the above points are perfect it’s a fabs item. If I could I’d give it 4.5 starsGreat price too at $1499 Cdn -PLUS I get to choose...

Delta Drum Sander 31-260x Video Review on youtube Part 1 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=koEMTEoB2rA Part 2 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HLfVV_1LDes&feature=related Disclaimer I would rather of not chosen something like the Delta drum sander, but finding a used commercial unit that I liked had been a battle over the past year. To be honest, I really did not want a sander with only a 1-1/2 HP motor although width was not an issue here. I wanted something like a 5 HP 26” ...

A must for Delta portable planers

A must for Delta portable planers

08-17-2011 04:11 AM by Kevin | 12 comments »

Not going to go into great detail here on this review. Ordered one from amazon.com yesterday and it arrived this morning. Replacing the original shroud with this one was a brease, took about 1 minute if that. I did however drill two holes in the bottom left/right of the shroud and into the planer to make it more sturdy. Hooked up a 6.5hp shop vac to it and planed some boards. Taking 1/16 – 1/8 off each pass the shop vac didn’t leave any chips/dust behind. For $25 dollars...

Delta 78-963 Biesemeyer T-Square Anti Kickback Snap in Splitter -Not what it should be

Delta 78-963 Biesemeyer T-Square Anti Kickback Snap in Splitter -Not what it should be

01-31-2013 11:46 PM by mrg | 12 comments »

I bought this back in December thinking it would be a good replacement since I did not have the factory splitter on my saw. The thought was lets make it safer until I buy my new saw. I had read many mixed reviews on the splitter and figured that maybe the bad reviews had to do with how people had been installing the splitter. It is just like any other splitter that you find on the uni-saw and the later contractor saws that have been discontinued. I got it home unboxed it, removed the ol...

Delta 50-760 best dust collector of its class

Delta 50-760 best dust collector of its class

06-11-2008 08:24 AM by Woodshopfreak | 11 comments »

Wow, is all I have to say. This was a part graduation part birthday present and I have to say I love this thing. It has made my woodworking experience a whole lot better. I bought about fifty feet of PVC and ran it along all the walls in my shop connecting it to my jointer, table saw, bandsaw, router table, and put in a handy floor sweep. I even put in a shop vac port that can hook right up to a shop vac hose and I can use it for my miter saw or for sanding or routing. I installed blast gates...

A GREAT SAW

A GREAT SAW

01-27-2008 09:45 PM by bfd | 11 comments »

In my opinion you can’t buy a better saw for the money when it comes to quality. I disagree with the other post on one point calling this a great saw for a beginner. I think it is a great saw period! I don’t concider myself a beginner nor do I concider myself a pro by any means but somewhere in the middle like most. With that said I don’t think this saw will be a purchase that I will regret or out grow any time soon. I opted for the 30” Beisemeyer Fence and have upgr...

Delta 1950's 4" Jointer - Rebuild

Delta 1950's 4" Jointer - Rebuild

01-31-2008 07:31 PM by Gary Ratajczak | 11 comments »

I thought I would post a review of a “vintage” tool I refurbished a few months back. I currently have a small shop, and was looking at bechtop jointers. Happened to mention my search at the office, and one of the guys indicated he had an old jointer that he was no longer using. After $50.00, and his help to lift it into my truck, I was off on a re-furb project. As the price of new tools continues to rise, along with the cost of fuel and food, I think there is more opport...

Accuracy out of the box

Accuracy out of the box

07-24-2008 05:54 PM by Michael Brailsford | 11 comments »

I have owned a Rockwell Unisaw for 4 years now. I bought it used from the US Army. It had the original fence on it. It was a constant job to keep it aligned and semi accurate. I recently was able to purchase the Delta 36-U30 Unifence. I took only about an hour to assemble it. It was amazing after I was done to do my first test cut. I set the curser at 6” and made my cut and low and behold it came out to six inches. Coming from what I just had all I could say was WOW! With my o...
