I have taken the base off and am cleaning it up. I am trying to find out the manufacturer. Hope someone will see the pictures and ID it for me. I love old tools.

Thanks

Then I found this on eBay, which pretty much tells me it’s a Delta:

It might be a Delta Milwaukee, or Delta Crescent, but it is a Delta.

Kindly,

Thanks CharlieM1958.
This one has DJ5 #228 on the fence. Fence is an Auto set jointer fence.
The base has the numbers C-3084-1.

I bought this 51/8” jointer from a friend local and it has three knives on it. It works very well.

I can see the fence looks a lot like the Delta fence you posted.

Thanks

Thanks Lee!
It is a good old jointer it is heavy and flat and it was cheap.
I like old and I like cheap. No plastic on the old ones.

Thanks

Looks like a homecraft delta I used to have.

Thanks everybody I believe that the mystery jointer must be a Delta.
