Topic tags/keywords: jointer dust collection manual re-wiring

I’ve searched all I know how on this site, and haven’t found the answers I need, and have a couple requests about this Jointer.

I recently purchased a used Jointer as described in the Title. It’s in very good shape, just dirty and needs some TLC. The Start / Stop switch was defective, so I ordered a new one, with a “Paddle” for the Off Switch. I”m remounting the Switch to a Post up & behind the Jointer to the right hand side, and re-wiring from the motor forward. I will post pictures of the finished project when done.

I also want to add a dust collection housing to the Jointer. Has anyone done this before??

Also, I need a copy of the manual.

Thanks for your help. I’m excited to have found this group.

I’m updating my own post. I’ve looked at some other Jointers similar to mine and it seems most of them have a Chute coming down from under the Jointer opening. In order to do that, I’m going to have to lower the motor and get a longer belt. I don’t see any reason to not do this. If I only lower it about 3 inches, I’ll be in good shape. Then, I can close in the base and add a 4 inch flange for my Dust Collector connection. Any comments?

Lowering it 3” shouldn’t be any problem. I’d go with one of the green link belts from HF so you can dial in the belt length and tension it properly.

Thanks BinghamtonEd,

I just quit for the day and the motor is lowered. A buddy of mine also recommended that green link belt so I guess I’d better get one. Thanks for your help. When I get it all done, I’ll post a picture of it.

Best Regards,

Thanks Ed, I have a whole organizer full of their coupons. Love em! I got the Link Belt today and will install it this week once the re-model is done.

Stand by! :-)
