Question: Open End Cutter Wrench
My wrench came up missing and now I can't change cutters..is there a substitute for the original.
Reply: Open End Cutter Wrench
Even when that wrench was available the price was quite a bit for a stamped steel wrench. I have been telling woodworkers that you can purchase a good quality 5/16 wrench. Although you will have to grind it down to fit between the screw and the cutterhead. It should work for you for years to come.
Hope this helps,
Question: Rockwell/Delta 6" Jointer
I have a Rockwell/Delta 6" Jointer (Model 37-220) and it is missing the in-feed table height locking knob (Item 51 in the parts drawing schematic). It is no longer available to purchase through ereplacement or ace tools repair. Any ideas where I could search for a used one or where I could get a part spec sheet for the knob so I could have a machinist make one?
Review: Delta - 37-220
This was a good little machine. Mine was made by Rockwell in Canada. Only problem I ever had was the fence was slightly twisted. It was impossible to have the fence square on both the infeed and outfeed table. I bought the jointer used and I can't image how the previous owner cut anything straight with it. My solution was to rig a steel flat to it to act as a lever. Then I took it outside to a storm sewer grate, stuck it in and twisted. Guess what? Cast iron will bend! A little bit of force was all it took. I also have an older Powermatic 8" jointer that does the bulk of my work, but this one is small, lightweight and portable. I really lament the loss of machines like this. I'm not so sure the new stuff is any better, but once the parts run out for my older equipment I might not have a choice anymore. For now I would say if you find a used Rockwell or Delta six incher, then buy it!
