Hey gang, the local CL has a 6” Rockwell / Delta Jointer with a 46” bed for sale for $250 which i thought was a pretty good deal. The owner tells me that the motor has been replaced with a 3/4 HP Dayton 1725 RPM motor …. looking around at soem others 1 HP seems like the norm on 6” models. I cant seem to find any info on the RPM of the motor, most are posted with the RPM of the cutterheads.
So is it a good buy or should i hold out a bit longer?
