Hey guys, I just keep coming up with questions. I’m looking at a 6” Delta jointer sometime this week, and would like to know what to check for. I’m mechanically inclined, but I have absolutely no experience operating or maintaining a jointer.
The guy is asking 75 for a older, belt driven floor model. Not sure exactly how old. I figure the belt and knives are both easily replaceable, and I know the table needs to be flat flat flat. Other than that, is there anything that should make me walk away from the deal?
I asked him how heavy it was, and he said he didn’t think it was over 100 pounds. That’s a lot lighter than my research is finding for the weight of a cast iron floor model, but he says it’s been quite some time since he’s done any woodworking, so it may well be he just doesn’t remember how heavy it is.
Update: This is dead, the seller totally misrepresented the jointer.
