Ok i feel a bit stupid at the moment.

Picked up an older 6” Craftsman jointer over the weekend (113.206801) at a garage sale. I’m new to jointers and hope this will serve as a nice entry level piece for small projects.

The unit was disassembled in boxes as I have it together the best I can figure out. The tables cleaned up well and the guard has been fixed since I took the picture. $50 for the unit was a good deal (with a set of new extra blades).

Problem is, I have a piece leftover which I can’t figure out. It doesn’t look like it was ever used, but it is the same craftsman gray paint as the unit.

At the risk of embarrassment I have to ask: what is this piece? I’ve found manuals for the jointer but do not see this partl listed…

Good morning teal, the piece is for the Craftsman sander, the 6×48 belt sander. It has nothing to do with the jointer. It is used when you don’t want a piece to go past a point on the belt as you sand. Keep in mind there is only one stupid question, the one that isn’t asked. Have fun, make some dust.

I agree with Clarkie goes with a belt sander.
