Hello, The neighbor of ours, among many other tools, keeps a table saw (Delta) and a jointer in his garage, which he has said I am welcome to use. They are at least 20 years old, little used and haven’t been turned on for a long time (there are speckles of rust spots on the jointer table). I would like to try them for my little projects before my hand plane skills are better. What are the procedures for tuning these power tools after such a long period of non-use? Any reference will be appreciated.
I got a new 10 in. table saw blade, because there was no blade there. The jointer cutter looks great, the neighbor said the tools had only seen a few hours of use since he bought them.
