Was out running around and there was this sign by the side of the Stuff for Guys sale. Could not resist.
there was an old Delta 6” jointer on a rickety wooden stand with a 1/3 hp motor and and old and solid
Sears molding machine with a 1 hp 11.4 amp electric motor, $50.00 each or both for 99.99. I forgot to
collect my penny change and loaded them both into my pickup, thinking if nothing else I could put the
1 hp motor on the jointer. I know the motor would sell for more than $100 on Ebay. A fellow wood
worker wants the molder so I may have to get another motor for the jointer. It looks like the old
model 37-305 and 37-307, except both of those were sold with a stand. Stamped on a plate was
Model 2-961. From experience with an almost new 1950 era Delta Lathe (it is younger than I am) I
am aware that tracing this type of model number is an exercise in futillity for me. Can anyone out
there help me with getting exact model and operating instructions on this machine. I have not even
started on the Craftsman molder yet. Thank you for any help.
