Topic tags/keywords: rockwell 37-315 jointer question

I have a Rockwell jointer model 37-315 that I have used for some time now. I recently needed to face a full 8” width, only to notice with the fence pushed all the way back there is only about 7-1/2” of knife exposed. Is there a trick to this? Thanks in advance for any help.

Can tou get a picture of the cutter head so I can see the alignment compared to the beds?

May need to loosen the bottom nut under the release lever for the fence. Mine got in a bind until, I took it all off and sanded and cleaned the rust off. Do you have the LVC connected to the switch and the motor, if so can you send me the wiring diagram.

Don’t have one specific for that machine, but they are all pretty much the same regardless – table saws, band saws, jointers, etc… anything that has has a starter all operate pretty much the same way. What is it that you are trying to figure out?

First the start/stop didn’t work, but was able to get another one from another Delta machine. Ran for 2 weeks and the transformer (D50833-91) burned up. I purchased another and got in a hurry and forgot to document taking out the old one. Anyway, now it will not run when pressing the Start. It only hums. Where do the Orange/Blue connect and the Red/Black off of the transformer connect to the Dual V Connection?

Here is a pretty generic wiring diagram for the starter (from the manual here):

My guess would be the red/black are the primary side (line voltage) and orange/blue the secondary (low voltage). That of course is if it’s the low voltage transformer. There is a wiring diagram on the contactor but it’s hard to read from the picture – it may give you a clue as to where to hook up the wires.

Cheers,
Brad

Thank you for the wiring diagrams. They look more like the panel on my Delta 20” BandSaw (28-652), which is newer than the Jointer. I guess something else is bad, because I had wired it the way you suggested and it still didn’t work.

There must be a newer approach than trying to stay with the old wiring. I thought about a Grizzly G4572 Single-Phase Magnetic Switch, but not sure if it would work. I talked to electrician, and he said it needed the protection for the motor and for safety to pushing the start/stop switch.

Have your say...
