Questions & Answers

how easy is it to change blades on jointer

how easy is it to change blades on the delta jointer 37-071
Asked by: hoho
About changing the blades..
 After a few months of using the jointer continuously, it struggled when I tried to square some very hard sycamore.
 Time to change or hone the blades I thought….
But undoing the screws to remove the factory set blades was absolutely impossible. They were torqued so tightly that they were impossible to unscrew.
 The hex wrench that comes with the jointer was useless. It just bent, and I ended up rounding off the tip. Other hex wrenches I had either destroyed the screw head or the wrench, so I decide to call Delta tech support. They were not much help…. suggesting to hit the screw head hard with a screwdriver. In the end they gave me a number for a local Delta authorized repair shop.
The service guy insisted that it would be $60 just to look at it and to remove the screws, $30 more to install and reset new blades…..- Delta said it would be covered under warranty. 
Apparently this is a common problem. In the end I used a screw-extractor set from Home Depot and replaced the screws with Phillips head S/S 3/4” machine screws.
I replaced the blades with new ones and honed the originals using a jig and various grades of wet/dry sandpaper - ending up with 2000 grit.
The jointer is working great again and I’m very impressed with it. But be warned that changing the blades for the first time is a huge pain.

Can i run 2×6s through it

Asked by: MagicMan
Sure.. Cutter blades are 6 1/4 in. long. 2x6's are 5 1/2 in. wide so you have 3/4 in. of play to centre the stock over the blades. If you are using long 2 x 6's, you may need some help in passing the stock over the cutter head smoothly without any pauses.

On assembly, the rough casting finishes and overall appearance gave me the impression of inferiority. Trying to put it together and going through the manual, my suspicions grew worse. The assembly instructions are not well illustrated or written - pointing you to wrong diagrams and missing some information. Wrong sized Hex screws are illustrated. After wrestling with the fence assembly I tried to adjust the fence to exactly 90º to the table. This was not easy as the fence locking assembly is difficult to use to say the least. But I got there in the end and tightened it as much as I dared. A few test pieces later though, I changed my mind about how good this jointer is. The results were quite impressive! I used a 10" length of plain old standard Doug. Fir 2 x 4 . I took about 1/16 " off all sides to make it square and true with very clean cuts... Quite impressive. The trick is to spend the time to set the fence *exactly* 90º. I don't think I'm going to move mine any time soon as it's perfect where it is! So - for just over $300 and about the cheapest jointer on the market, it's not that bad. It's a pain to put together and adjust, but its capable of producing some very good results.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Bench Top Jointer This jointer is very nice for a bench top jointer. I has a full cast iron top and fence which give the tool lots of weight (which makes it hard to move around if needed). It is very stable when it runs and has plenty of power. There is very little snipe once properly set up. I am very happy to own this in my small woodworking shop!

The screw hole in the dowel clamp for the handle was drilled to overlap with the slot in the rear fence support such that the handle would not seat into the dowel clamp. The manual specifies certain screw sizes in the contents description, but specifies different screw sizes (i.e. not listed in the content description) when describing the assembly. Did no get far enough to assemble to try it out, but saw enough to deem the jointer inferior in manufacturing to return and purchase a different jointer.
