Topic tags/keywords: jointer

I bought a used Delta 8” jointer last year. The model # is 37-380. The serial # on the base is 99L51685. The jointer itself has a tag with the manufacture date, 08-03-1999. There are two versions of this jointer, Type 1 and Type 2. I am trying to determine which I have. When I talked with Delta support, they said that the type should be on the label with the model #, but it is not. They also said that if no Type is given, it is probably 1. At one parts site, there are pictures of the dust chutes for the two types (they are different). Mine is the Type 1 chute.

But, I ordered a replacement pulley for Type 1 and it was not correct. The bore was too large. Mine is 5/8” and this was 3/4”. I suppose that the previous owner could have replaced the motor, but this is not likely since the jointer obviously had very little use. The label on the motor says “Delta 62-164” and the model # is

I have since purchased a pulley elsewhere, but am still curious.
