SAFETY
Additional Safety for Jointers
READ and understand this
entire manual before using
this machine. Serious personal injury may occur
if safety and operational
information is not understood and followed. DO
NOT risk your safety by
not reading!
USE this and other machinery with caution and respect. Always consider safety
first, as it applies to your individual working conditions. No list of safety guidelines
can be complete—every shop environment
is different. Failure to follow guidelines
could result in serious personal injury,
damage to equipment or poor work results.
JOINTER KICKBACK. "Kickback" is when the workpiece is thrown off the jointer table by the force of the
cutterhead. Always use push blocks and safety glasses to reduce the likelihood of injury from “kickback.” If you do not understand what kickback is, or how it occurs, DO NOT operate this machine.
CUTTERHEAD ALIGNMENT. Keep the edge of the cutterhead knives at top dead center (TDC) even with
the top edge of the outfeed table to avoid kickback and personal injuries.
WORKPIECE SUPPORT. Supporting the workpiece adequately at all times while jointing is crucial for
making safe cuts and avoiding injury. Never attempt to make a cut with an unstable workpiece.
PUSH BLOCKS. Always use push blocks whenever surface planing. Never pass your hands directly over
the cutterhead without a push block.
KICKBACK ZONE. The "kickback zone" is the path directly through the end of the infeed table. Never
stand or allow others to stand in this area during operation.
MAXIMUM CUTTING DEPTH. The maximum cutting depth for one pass is 1⁄8". Never attempt any single
cut deeper than this!
JOINTING WITH THE GRAIN. Jointing against the grain or jointing end grain is dangerous and could produce chatter or excessive chip out. Always joint with the grain.
CUTTERHEAD GUARD. All operations must be performed with the cutterhead guard in place. Always
ensure that the cutterhead guard is in proper working condition before operating the jointer.
PROPER CUTTING. When cutting, always keep the workpiece moving toward the outfeed table until
the workpiece has passed completely over the cutterhead. Never back the work toward the infeed
table.
USING GOOD STOCK. Jointing safety begins with the choice of stock. Inspect your stock carefully before
feeding it over the cutterhead. Never joint a board that has loose knots, nails, or staples. If you have
any doubts about the stability or structural integrity of your stock, DO NOT joint it!
EXPERIENCING DIFFICULTIES. If at any time you are experiencing difficulties performing the intended
operation, stop using the machine! Contact Tech Support at (360) 734-3482.

ELECTRICAL
Circuit Requirements
This machine must be connected to the correct size and
type of power supply circuit, or fire or electrical damage
may occur. Read through this section to determine if an
adequate power supply circuit is available. If a correct
circuit is not available, a qualified electrician MUST install
one before you can connect the machine to power.
The machine must be properly set up
before it is safe to operate. DO NOT
connect this machine to the power
source until instructed to do later in
this manual.
ELECTRICAL
A power supply circuit includes all electrical equipment
between the breaker box or fuse panel in the building
and the machine. The power supply circuit used for
this machine must be sized to safely handle the fullload current drawn from the machine for an extended
period of time. (If this machine is connected to a circuit
protected by fuses, use a time delay fuse marked D.)
Full-Load Current Rating
The full-load current rating is the amperage a machine
draws at 100% of the rated output power. On machines
with multiple motors, this is the amperage drawn by the
largest motor or sum of all motors and electrical devices
that might operate at one time during normal operations.
Full-Load Current Rating at 110V................... 12 Amps
Circuit Requirements for 110V
This machine can be converted to operate on a 110V
power supply (details about voltage conversion can be
found later in this manual). The 110V power supply circuit
must have a verified ground and meet the requirements
that follow:
Circuit Type................ 110V/120V, 60 Hz, Single-Phase
Circuit Size.............................................. 15 Amps
Plug/Receptacle..................................... NEMA 5-15
-9-
Incorrectly wiring or grounding this
machine can cause electrocution, fire,
or machine damage. To reduce this risk,
only an electrician or qualified service
personnel should do any required
electrical work on this machine.
Note: The circuit requirements listed in this
manual apply to a dedicated circuit—where
only one machine will be running at a
time. If this machine will be connected to
a shared circuit where multiple machines
will be running at the same time, consult
a qualified electrician to ensure that the
circuit is properly sized for safe operation.
Model W1829 (Mfg. Since 3/18)
Grounding Requirements
ELECTRICAL
This machine MUST be grounded. In the event of certain
types of malfunctions or breakdowns, grounding provides
a path of least resistance for electric current to travel—in
order to reduce the risk of electric shock.
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding wire will
increase the risk of electric shock. The wire with green
insulation (with/without yellow stripes) is the equipmentgrounding wire. If repair or replacement of the power
cord or plug is necessary, do not connect the equipmentgrounding wire to a live (current carrying) terminal.

Figure 3. NEMA 5-15 plug & receptacle.
Check with a qualified electrician or service personnel
if you do not understand these grounding requirements,
or if you are in doubt about whether the tool is
properly grounded. If you ever notice that a cord or
plug is damaged or worn, disconnect it from power, and
immediately replace it with a new one.
For 110V Connection
A NEMA 5-15 plug has a grounding prong that must be
attached to the equipment-grounding wire inside the
included power cord. The plug must only be inserted into
a matching receptacle (see Figure 3) that is properly
installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes
and ordinances.
Extension Cords
We do not recommend using an extension cord with
this machine. Extension cords cause voltage drop, which
may damage electrical components and shorten motor
life. Voltage drop increases with longer extension cords
and smaller gauge sizes (higher gauge numbers indicate
smaller sizes).
Any extension cord used with this machine must contain a
ground wire, match the required plug and receptacle, and
meet the following requirements:
Minimum Gauge Size at 110V....................... 14 AWG
Maximum Length (Shorter is Better).................50 ft.
-10-
DO NOT modify the provided plug or use
an adapter if the plug will not fit your
receptacle. Instead, have a qualified
electrician install the proper receptacle
on a power supply circuit that meets the
requirements for this machine.

SETUP
Machine Placement
•
Workbench Load: Refer to the Machine
Specifications, on Page 3, for the weight
and footprint specifications of your
machine. Some workbenches may require
additional reinforcement to support both
the weight of the machine and materials.
•
Working Clearances: Consider the size
of material to be processed through
the machine, space for auxiliary stands,
work tables and other machinery when
establishing a location for your Jointer.
See Figure 6 for the overall machine
measurements.
Cleaning Machine
The tables and other unpainted parts of your
jointer are coated with a waxy grease that
protects them from corrosion during shipment.
Clean this grease off with a solvent cleaner or
citrus-based degreaser. DO NOT use chlorinebased solvents such as brake parts cleaner or
acetone—if you happen to splash some onto a
painted surface, you will ruin the finish.
NEVER clean with gasoline
or other petroleumbased solvents. Most have
low flash points, which
make them extremely
flammable. A risk of
explosion and burning
exists if these products
are used. Serious personal
injury may occur if this
warning is ignored!
21"
29"
ALWAYS work in wellventilated areas far from
possible ignition sources
when using solvents to
clean machinery. Many
solvents are toxic when
inhaled or ingested. Use
care when disposing
of waste rags and
towels to be sure they
DO NOT create fire or
environmental hazards.
Figure 6. Machine dimensions.
USE helpers or power lifting equipment to lift this
6" Jointer. Otherwise,
serious personal injury
may occur.
MAKE your shop “child
safe.” Close and lock all
entrances
when
you
are away. NEVER allow
untrained visitors in your
shop when assembling,
adjusting or operating
equipment.

Dust Collection
The W1829 has a built-in dust collection fan and chip
exhaust. It also includes a 2.5" dust port, clamp, and dust
collection bag. The W1829 can also be hooked up to a
pre-existing dust collection system.
Recommended CFM at Dust Port:................. 150 CFM
SETUP
Do not confuse this CFM recommendation with the rating
of the dust collector. To determine the CFM at the
dust port, you must take into account many variables,
including the CFM rating of the dust collector, the length
of hose between the dust collector and the machine, the
amount of branches or Y's, and the amount of other open
lines throughout the system. Explaining this calculation
is beyond the scope of this manual. If you are unsure of
your system, consult an expert or purchase a good dust
collection "how-to" book.
DO NOT operate this machine without an adequate dust collection system. This machine creates substantial
amounts of wood dust while operating.
Failure to use a dust collection system
can result in short and long-term respiratory illness.
To install the dust port and collection bag, do these
steps:
1. Install the dust port to the chip exhaust, as shown in
Figure 16.
2. Slip the bag clamp over the collection bag, then
attach the collection bag to the dust port and clamp
it in place, as shown in Figure 17.

OPERATIONS
General
This machine will perform many types of operations
that are beyond the scope of this manual. Many of these
operations can be dangerous or deadly if performed
incorrectly.
The instructions in this section are written with the
understanding that the operator has the necessary
knowledge and skills to operate this machine. If at any
time you are experiencing difficulties performing any
operation, stop using the machine!
If you are an inexperienced operator, we strongly
recommend that you read books or trade articles, or seek
training from an experienced jointer operator before
performing any unfamiliar operations. Above all, your
safety should come first!
READ and understand this entire instruction manual before using this machine.
Serious personal injury may occur if
safety and operational information is not
understood and followed. DO NOT risk
your safety by not reading!
Basic Controls
A. ON/OFF Switch: Starts and stops the cutterhead
rotation.
The switch has a yellow safety key—removing
it locks the switch in the OFF position. Always
remove this yellow key when leaving the work area.
This prevents unsupervised persons in your shop
(especially children) from starting the jointer.
OPERATIONS
This section covers the basic parts and controls used
during routine operations. Refer to Figures 21–­22 for
basic parts and control locations.
A
B
Figure 21. W1829 basic controls in front.
B. Depth of Cut Adjustment Knob: Changes the height
of the infeed table to control the depth of cut.
C. Fence Tilting Handle: Locks the fence at the desired
angle. Use fence stops to quickly set the fence to
90° (perpendicular to the tables), 45° inward, or 45°
outward.
D. Fence Sliding Handle: Allows you to adjust the
position of the fence over the tables. ALWAYS
tighten it before you begin operations. The position
of the fence determines the width of the cut as
the workpiece moves over the cutterhead. NEVER
operate the jointer if ANY part of cutterhead is
exposed on the work area.

Stock Inspection
& Requirements
Here are some rules to follow when choosing and
jointing stock:
•
OPERATIONS
•
CORRECT
DO NOT joint or surface plane stock that contains
loose knots. Injury to the operator or damage to the
workpiece can occur if the knots become dislodged
during the cutting operation.
OUTFEED TABLE
Jointing and surface planing with the grain produces a better finish and is safer for the operator.
Cutting with the grain is described as feeding the
stock on the jointer so the grain points down and
toward you as viewed on the edge of the stock (see
Figure 23).
Note: If the grain changes direction along the edge
of the board, decrease the cutting depth and make
additional passes.
•
Remove foreign objects from the stock. Make sure
that any stock you process with the jointer is clean
and free of any dirt, nails, staples, tiny rocks or any
other foreign objects that may damage the jointer
blades.
•
Only process natural wood fiber through your
jointer. Never joint MDF, particle board, plywood,
laminates or other synthetically made materials.
•
Make sure all stock is sufficiently dried before
jointing. Wood with a moisture content over 20%
will cause unnecessary wear on the knives and poor
cutting results.
•
DO NOT joint stock that is excessively warped or
twisted.
•
Make sure your workpiece exceeds the minimum
dimension requirements (see Figures 24–25)
before edge jointing or surface planing, or it may
break or kick back during the operation!
-20-
INFEED TABLE
With Grain
INCORRECT
DO NOT joint or surface plane against the grain
direction. Cutting against the grain increases the
likelihood of stock kickback, as well as tear-out on
the workpiece.

Squaring Stock
Squaring stock involves four steps performed in the
order below:
1. Surface Plane on the Jointer: The concave face of
the workpiece is surface planed flat with the jointer
(see Figure 26).
2. Surface Plane on a Thickness Planer: The opposite
face of the workpiece is surface planed flat with a
thickness planer (see Figure 27).
3. Edge Joint on the Jointer: The concave edge of
the workpiece is jointed flat with the jointer (see
Figure 28).
4. Rip Cut on a Table Saw: The jointed edge of the
workpiece is placed against a table saw fence and
the opposite edge cut off (see Figure 29).

Surface Planing
The purpose of surface planing on the jointer is to make
one flat face on a piece of stock (see Figures 30–31) to
prepare it for surface planing on a thickness planer.
NOTICE
If you are not experienced with a jointer, set
the depth of cut to 0", and practice feeding the
workpiece across the tables as described below.
This procedure will better prepare you for the
actual operation.
Figure 30. Typical surface planing
operation.
To surface plane on the jointer, do these steps:
1. Read and understand SAFETY, beginning on Page 6.
OPERATIONS
2. Make sure your stock has been inspected for
dangerous conditions as described in the Stock
Inspection & Requirements instructions, on Page
20.
3. Set the cutting depth for your operation. (We
suggest 1⁄32" for surface planing, using a more
shallow depth for hard wood species or for wide
stock.)
4. Make sure your fence is set to 90˚.
5. If your workpiece is cupped (warped), place it so
the concave side is face down on the surface of the
infeed table.
Removed
Surface
Figure 31. Illustration of surface planing
results.
6. Start the jointer.
7. With a push block in each hand, press the workpiece
against the table and fence with firm pressure, and
feed the workpiece over the cutterhead (Figure 30).
Note: When your leading hand (with push block) gets
within 4" of the cutterhead, lift it up and over the
cutterhead, and place the push block on the portion of the workpiece that is on the outfeed table.
Now, focus your pressure on the outfeed end of the
workpiece while feeding, and repeat the same action
with your trailing hand when it gets within 4" of the
cutterhead. To keep your hands safe, DO NOT let
them get closer than 4" from the cutterhead when it
is moving!
8.Repeat Step 7 until the entire surface is flat.
-22-
Failure to use push blocks when surface planing may result in cutterhead
contact, which will cause serious personal injury. Always use push blocks
to protect your hands when surface
planing on the jointer.
Model W1829 (Mfg. Since 3/18)
Edge Jointing
The purpose of edge jointing is to produce a finished,
flat-edged surface that is suitable for joinery or finishing
(see Figure 32). It is also a necessary step when squaring
rough or warped stock.
To edge joint on the jointer, do these steps:
1. Read and understand SAFETY, on Page 6.
If you are not experienced with a
jointer, set the depth of cut to 0", and
practice feeding the workpiece across
the tables as described below. This
procedure will better prepare you for
the actual operation.
2. Inspect your stock for dangerous conditions as
described in the Stock Inspection & Requirements
instructions, on Page 20.
3. Set the cutting depth for your operation.
Note: Between 1⁄16" and 1⁄8" for edge jointing, using
a more shallow depth for certain species or for wide
stock.
4. Make sure the fence is set to 90˚.
5. If your workpiece is bowed (warped), place it so
the concave side is face down on the surface of the
infeed table.
Figure 32. Illustration of edge jointing
results.
7. Press the workpiece against the table and fence with
firm pressure. Use your trailing hand to guide the
workpiece through the cut, and feed the workpiece
over the cutterhead (see Figure 33).
Note: If your leading hand gets within 4" of the
cutterhead, lift it up and over the cutterhead, and
place it on the portion of the workpiece that is
over the outfeed table. Focus your pressure on the
outfeed end of the workpiece while feeding, and
repeat the same action with your trailing hand if it
gets within 4" of the cutterhead. Keep your hands
safe—DO NOT let them get closer than 4" from the
cutterhead!
8.Repeat Step 7 until the entire edge is flat.

the edge of a workpiece (see Figure 34).
The Model W1829 has preset fence stops at 45˚ inward,
90˚, and 45˚ outward (135˚). If your situation requires
a different angle, the preset fence stops can be easily
adjusted for your needs.
To bevel cut on the jointer, do these steps:
NOTICE
If you are not experienced with a
jointer, set the depth of cut to 0", and
practice feeding the workpiece across
the tables as described below. This procedure will better prepare you for the
actual operation.

V-Belt Replacement
The Model W1829 uses two belts to drive the cutterhead
and the dust collection impeller. When these belts are not
tensioned correctly, misaligned, or damaged, your jointer
will not function properly.
The part number for the replacement drive belt is
X1829070; the part number for the replacement fan belt
is X1829092.
Refer to the parts diagram in this manual when fixing
belt problems. If you need further assistance, call
our Tech Support at (360) 734-3482 or send e-mail to:
tech-support@shopfox.biz.
To realign or replace the cutterhead belt, do these
steps:
1. DISCONNECT JOINTER FROM POWER!
2. While facing the rear of the jointer, tip it away from
you until it rests on the fence assembly.
3. Remove the screws that hold the motor cover to the
jointer base. Lift the cover off and set it aside.
4. Inspect the cutterhead belt for proper tension,
straight alignment, and possible damage or wear.
Note: The belt is properly tensioned if it deflects
about 3⁄8" when you press down on middle of the
belt with moderate pressure from your thumb or
forefinger. The belt is properly aligned if it lies flat
and straight on the motor shaft and drive pulley.
Belt damage will be evident upon inspection.
5. Loosen the four motor mounting cap screws (see
Figure 49), but do not remove them.
SERVICE
6. Replace a damaged belt with a new one. Realign and
re-tension the belt.
Motor Mount Screws
7. Tighten the motor mounting screws and replace the
motor cover.
8. Test run the jointer, as described on Page 18. If this
procedure does not solve the problem, call Tech
Support.
Note: The fan belt is installed without releasing
motor tension. Simply slide the old belt off. Slide
the new belt on and replace the motor cover.

Motor Brush Replacement
This jointer has a universal motor that uses carbon
brushes, which are considered wear-items. Refer to the
troubleshooting guide to determine if the motor brushes
must be replaced.
You can order a new brush kit (two brush assemblies) by
calling customer service and ordering part X1829024-1.
To replace motor brushes, do these steps:
1. DISCONNECT JOINTER FROM POWER!
2. While facing the rear of the jointer, tip it away from
you until it rests on the fence assembly.
3. Remove the screws that hold the motor cover to the
jointer base. Lift the cover off and set it aside.
4. Vacuum all dust and debris from the motor and belt
areas.
5. Use a dime to unscrew the brush caps. (See Figure
50 to locate the brush caps.)
Note: When you remove the brush caps, a spring
will pop out of the socket; the carbon brush is
firmly attached to this spring. When you buy a
new brush kit, you will get a pair of brush/spring
assemblies.
6. Check the brushes for wear. If a brush is worn to less
than 3⁄32" in length, replace both brushes.
7. Insert the brush assemblies, positioning them so they
slide into the slots built into the sockets, then press
the brush cap against the spring, push it into the
socket, and turn it to lock it in the motor housing.

8. Replace the motor cover.
— If the jointer runs properly, you are done.
— If the motor does not start, either the brushes
are not correctly aligned in the sockets or there is
another problem with the motor or wiring. Refer
to the Troubleshooting section for assistance.

dangerous. Touching electrified parts will
result in personal injury including but not
limited to severe burns, electrocution,
or death. Disconnect the power from
the machine before servicing electrical
components!
MOTOR WIRING. The motor wiring shown in these
diagrams is current at the time of printing,
but it may not match your machine. Always
use the wiring diagram inside the motor
junction box.
MODIFICATIONS. Using aftermarket parts or
modifying the wiring beyond what is shown
in the diagram may lead to unpredictable
results, including serious injury or fire.
QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN. Due to the inherent
hazards of electricity, only a qualified
electrician should perform wiring tasks on this
machine. If you are not a qualified electrician,
get help from one before attempting any kind
of wiring job.
CAPACITORS/INVERTERS. Some capacitors and
power inverters store an electrical charge for
up to five minutes after being disconnected
from the power source. To avoid being
shocked, wait at least this long before working
on these components.
WIRE CONNECTIONS. All connections must be
tight to prevent wires from loosening during
machine operation. Double-check all wires
disconnected or connected during any wiring
task to ensure tight connections.
ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS. You MUST follow
the electrical requirements at the beginning
of this manual when connecting your machine
to a power source.
WIRE/COMPONENT DAMAGE. Damaged wires
or components increase the risk of serious
