Topic tags/keywords: jointer refurbishing arts and crafts

Hey guys,

I just finished my restore of the DJ-15, 6in delta jointer.
I took everything apart cleaned, wire wheeled, and repainted them.
I only repainted the cabinet, didnt repair any little holes

All i have left to do is sharpen the jointer knives and re-align the beds, etc…

I am pretty happy with how the tool came out, and I think it looks pretty snazzy.

P.S.- Got the paint color matched at home depot, it was 20 bucks for a quart, but the color is spot on and high quality

Before you paint the fence, you might want to file a small radius on the top. I’m always cutting my knuckles on the top edge of that.

I already painted it…
If it becomes too big a problem, ill reconsider, but thats probably a ways a way.
