Topic tags/keywords: question

New to this forum and wondered if anyone might help locate Part 899312 Bar-Knife Locking for a Delta 22-580 13” planer. Trying to get this going for my son and numerous searches as well as calls to Delta have produced nothing.

This is the part that bolts down the knife to the cutter head.

Maybe someone has a parts machine?? I’ll pay a good price.

Man, I sold mine for parts about 6 months ago. Ereplacementparts.com is usually where I go, but it looks like they don’t have it. Sorry. Best of luck

A quick Google search turns up a few prospects, like this one at acetoolrepair.com that says they have 3 in stock..

Cheers,

Thank you for your help.

They do show 3 in stock but they are out as well.

I had really given up and bought the Dewalt 575 planer as I was in the middle of a project and the Delta was not cutting parallel. Some re-sawn tiger maple had forced chips under the knife despite tight lockdown bolts and deformed the locking bar thus changing the cutting arc of a portion of the knife.the 22-580 is a wonderful little machine but will only take so much abuse.

Before I ruined the locking bar trying to peen it back in shape,, the cutter head miked near dead parallel to the table as did an installed knife. Very quickly on a normal run of mahogany and the embedded chips and non-parallel cuts would return.

Built a Maloof style rocker out of Tiger and had no problems so conclude it was the irregularities of planing a resawn variable grain density wood that tore up my planer….root cause my stupidity.

I share this detail in the hope that someone might not have the same problem.

I want to thank everyone for trying to help with this problem and can report a successful outcome.

The gibbs from the Delta 22-590 fit the 22-580 perfectly and my planer is working great with no new noise or vibration. The new part is a about 1/8” narrower front to back but this is only apparent in the fulcrum section along the back edge to no dissadvantage. Planer working great.

Thanks again!

I am glad to hear a solution. I have the same problem with the gibs on my 22-580. For the past few years I have been using craftsman 13” blades from Sears, they are identical and a lot cheaper. I was about to try buying the gibs for the craftsman 13” planer model #351217430. The gibs look the same on the website also, however since the solution is the 22-590, I will go with delta.

Cheers!

excuse my ignorance but is gibs another way to refer to ” Part 899312 Bar-Knife Locking for a Delta 22-580 ” if so you have just made my day as I had the exact same problem as you. What site did you find them in-stock on? Thanks

Yes, the gibs are another term for what is referred to as the “Bar-Knife Locking” in the delta 22-580 parts list.

Also I should add that I went to order the “Bar-Knife Locking” parts from delta yet it was back ordered, so I ordered the gibs for a craftsman 13” planer model #351217430 which seems to have the same knife/blade locking system. These were a $28 dollar investment at $14/piece, which I will return if they don’t fit.

When I receive them in a few weeks I will post the result.

Cheers

I should add that I simply checked a few parts supplies

For the delta 22-590 I used:

I thought I offered this once, but I don’t see the post, and the way my mind works lately isn’t reliable on memory cells.
I have a 22-580 that needs a transmission, probably a belt and probably the driven pulley.

If anyone want it you will need to come get it or I could have the wife send it to you at your cost. As you know, these things are really heavy so if you were within 400-500 miles of Franklin, TX 77856 it might be cheaper do drive here in a fuel efficient car and pick it up.

Carry on.

yeah Dallas we talked about it a little while back but I thought someone locally had claimed it. Shipping for the whole unit would be outrageous to get it here to Hawaii. I will try the 22-590 route for now. Thanks for offering once again!

Glad to see some of you see interest in the 22-590 solution. I got mine direct from Delta tech rep and no knowledge of availabity elsewhere.

I read where someone is ordering the Craftsman 13” planer part to try. Please take another look at this because I think it is a 6 bolt application where the 22-580/22-590 has seven bolts. 6 won’t work and cannot be made to work.

In the future http://www.toolpartsdirect.com/ is another good source for parts.

Just stopping by to report success with the 22-590 fix. Not an identical part but worked. Now onto the in-feed roller problem…. I had good luck getting parts from acetoolrepair.com
