Delta 22-580 13-Inch Benchtop Planer

Delta 22-580 13-Inch Benchtop Planer

01-28-2008 01:17 AM by GaryK | 25 comments »

I have had this planer for going on 2 years now. I have nothing but praise for it.I got it used but like new condition. It has 2 sppeds. A dimensioning speed of 60 cpi allows you to shave rough wood to its desired thicknessquickly with no snipe. Then a quicker finishing speed of 90 cpi, your wood comes out ultrasmooth and ready to go. The double-sided M2 steel knives are powered by a 15 amp, 120-volt, single-phase motor. It has a blade zero indicator (which lets you set the cutterhead t...

Nice small jointer for lightweight work

Nice small jointer for lightweight work

12-09-2008 07:57 PM by ferstler | 18 comments »

As a retired person who was a relative newcomer to the hobby, this was the first tool of this type that I purchased, and I had hopes that it would do what I needed in the way of hobby-grade woodworking. (I will use the terms jointer and planer interchangeably in this review.) Unfortunately, the short length of the aluminum table sections (spanning just 30 inches) made it difficult for the device to do a good job planing longer boards. In addition, the lack of a solid, two-sided lockdown with ...

Excellent Saw, Great Power, Good Price

Excellent Saw, Great Power, Good Price

01-29-2008 04:30 AM by wildbill903 | 9 comments »

I purchased the 10” Hybrid saw in December last year, so it has been in the shop fewer than two months. But in these two months we have grown quite close. My wife named her “Biesy Baby” after the fence.I’ll touch on a few of the more important points in my review of the saw, and hopefully add some insight into your shopping experience. Features: The saw came, as the name states, with the left tilt feature. Two noted luxuries this affords are in large mitred-edge ...

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...

Delta 36-714 10-Inch left Tilt Hybrid Saw

Delta 36-714 10-Inch left Tilt Hybrid Saw

10-02-2009 10:23 PM by cstrang | 5 comments »

This is a good bang for your buck, when I originally purchased the saw I got it for around $1200, it is a little more pricy today but none the less a good buy. It comes wired for 120 from the manufacturer but when I received it I got my electrician friend to ramp it up to 240, not much that I have in my shop can bog it down now. In my old High school we had a saw just like this one with the sole difference of it being connected to standard 120, I notice a big difference between them, if you h...

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 22-590 13" planer

Delta 22-590 13" planer

02-11-2011 10:21 PM by ic3ss | 10 comments »

It seems this is the first LJ review of the new Delta 22-590 planer. Delta released this last summer, I believe, and I’ve only found a few reviews by people who’ve actually used the thing. Most of them on the web are just copy-and-paste of someone elses’ review. I wanted to save some money and buy a used planer, and after wasting my time and a lot of gas on a Craigslist deal-gone-bad for a used 22-580, I decided to buy new. This is the 22-590, it’s the update to the 22...

Delta Portable Jointer - so so even at $40 and with modification

Delta Portable Jointer - so so even at $40 and with modification

07-16-2010 03:44 AM by AaronK | 10 comments »

Bought it used off craigslist for $40. I spent about 4 hours on it getting it to what is its most usable form without major modification. I work slow, but figure you’ll probably have to spend at least half that time if you have the same problems I did…. and the other two reviewers here on LJ did too. Here’s what needed to be done: 1. shim infeed table to be coplanar with outfeed. Fortunately the tables are not warped, as far as I can tell. 2. adjust the blades to be level...
