Topic tags/keywords: jointer

I just recently was given an older CM 6” jointer. I need the following: Copy of a mnaual, parts break down and a source for parts. Can anybody help? Been a woodworker for a long time, been away but getting back into it now that I’m retired. Thanks.

A specific model number would help, but here's a starting point.

Central Machinery Model 1606. If any one has one of these I need a copy of the owners guide.

Model numbers change a lot at HF, this manual may get you close!

Yeah, I called the 800 number, mega menu says to direct ALL “parts inquiries or orders to parts@harborfreight.com”. I’ve sent two e-mails and have yet to hear from them.

Its been a bit since I used that number but the last time I did you would actually get through to a real live person. Call me old fashioned and cranky but I just find it downright stupid how businesses today make it harder and harder for the customer to communicate with them. I hope they get back to you shortly and can help you out.

They do that so frustration will piss you off enough to give up and they won’t have to deal with you. Dealing with Customer issues cuts into their break time and profits. Greed, the Corporate mantra.
