I’ve got an older Rockwell 8” jointer (37-315) that was in storage for a long time. When it was pulled out of storage, the fence took a hit and the left half is now missing. I don’t want to point fingers or anything, but it was definitely Steve’s fault (OP curses Steve’s name under his breath). So now I’m on the hunt for a replacement fence. The tilt/lock mechanism is fine, so I’m just searching for a replacement fence, and thus far I’ve come up dry whilst searching for NOS, or people parting out this particular jointer.

I’m now looking at the fences that Grizzly puts on their parallelogram jointer. It looks pretty similar to the set up on the old Rockwell, and it can be purchased directly from Grizzly. However similar doesn’t necessarily mean compatible. Several jointers out there use this design, so if anyone has a Delta, or Grizzly, or Shop Fox, or other jointer with this style of tilt/lock mechanism, would you please measure the diameter and spacing of the brackets on the fence? I will give you a virtual high five and/or hug for your efforts.

bump. I’m sure one of your guys has one of these jointers. Bust out your measuring tape and let me know. Thanks!

Did you check over at OWWM in the BOYD section, or post a WTB ad there?

Cheers,

Yep. I posted it earlier this week. No responses yet. One guy did let me know that I just missed one on EBay, so I know they’re out there.
