fire, and/or serious personal injury or property damage.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
13. USE RECOMMENDED ACCESSORIES. The use of
accessories and attachments not recommended by
Delta may cause damage to the machine or injury to the
user.
14. USE THE PROPER EXTENSION CORD. Make sure
your extension cord is in good condition. When using
an extension cord, be sure to use one heavy enough to
carry the current your product will draw. An undersized
cord will cause a drop in line voltage, resulting in loss of
power and overheating. See the Extension Cord Chart
for the correct size depending on the cord length and
nameplate ampere rating. If in doubt, use the next
heavier gauge. The smaller the gauge number, the
heavier the cord.
15. SECURE THE WORKPIECE. Use clamps or a vise to hold
the workpiece when practical. Loss of control of a
workpiece can cause injury.
16. FEED THE WORKPIECE AGAINST THE DIRECTION OF
THE ROTATION OF THE BLADE, CUTTER, OR ABRASIVE
SURFACE. Feeding it from the other direction will cause
the workpiece to be thrown out at high speed.

MOTOR SPECIFICATIONS
Your machine is wired for 120/240 volts, 60 HZ alternating current. Before connecting the machine to the power
source, make sure the switch is in the “OFF” position.
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
THIS MACHINE MUST BE GROUNDED WHILE IN USE TO PROTECT THE OPERATOR FROM
ELECTRIC SHOCK.
1. All grounded, cord-connected machines:
2. Grounded, cord-connected machines intended for
use on a supply circuit having a nominal rating less
than 150 volts:
In the event of a malfunction or breakdown, grounding
provides a path of least resistance for electric current to
reduce the risk of electric shock. This machine is
equipped with an electric cord having an equipmentgrounding conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must
be plugged into a matching outlet that is properly installed
and grounded in accordance with all local codes and
ordinances.
If the machine is intended for use on a circuit that has an
outlet that looks like the one illustrated in Fig. A, the
machine will have a grounding plug that looks like the plug
illustrated in Fig. A. A temporary adapter, which looks like
the adapter illustrated in Fig. B, may be used to connect
this plug to a matching 2-conductor receptacle as shown
in Fig. B if a properly grounded outlet is not available. The
temporary adapter should be used only until a properly
grounded outlet can be installed by a qualified electrician.
The green-colored rigid ear, lug, and the like, extending
from the adapter must be connected to a permanent
ground such as a properly grounded outlet box. Whenever
the adapter is used, it must be held in place with a metal
screw.
Do not modify the plug provided - if it will not fit the outlet,
have the proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding
conductor can result in risk of electric shock. The
conductor with insulation having an outer surface that is
green with or without yellow stripes is the equipmentgrounding conductor. If repair or replacement of the
electric cord or plug is necessary, do not connect the
equipment-grounding conductor to a live terminal.
NOTE: In Canada, the use of a temporary adapter is not
permitted by the Canadian Electric Code.
Check with a qualified electrician or service personnel if
t h e g ro u n d i n g i n s t r u c t i o n s a re n o t c o m p l e t e l y
understood, or if in doubt as to whether the machine is
properly grounded.
3. Grounded, cord-connected machines intended for
use on a supply circuit having a nominal rating between
150 - 250 volts, inclusive:
Use only 3-wire extension cords that have 3-prong
grounding type plugs and matching 3-conductor
receptacles that accept the machine’s plug, as shown in
Fig. A.

STARTING AND STOPPING JOINTER
1. The on/off switch (A) Fig. 33 is located on the front of the jointer. To turn the machine “ON”, move switch (A) up
to the “ON” position.
2. To turn the machine “OFF”, move the switch down to the “OFF” position.
MAKE SURE THAT THE SWITCH IS IN THE “OFF” POSITION BEFORE PLUGGING IN THE POWER
CORD. IN THE EVENT OF A POWER FAILURE, MOVE THE SWITCH TO THE “OFF” POSITION. AN ACCIDENTAL
START-UP CAN CAUSE INJURY.
LOCKING SWITCH IN THE “OFF” POSITION
IMPORTANT: When the tool is not in use, the switch should be locked in the “OFF” position to prevent
unauthorized use. To lock the switch, grasp the switch toggle (A) Fig. 33 and pull it out of the switch. With the switch
toggle (B) Fig. 34 removed, the switch will not operate. However, should the switch toggle be removed while the saw
is running, the machine can be turned “OFF,” but cannot be restarted without re-inserting the switch toggle (B).

INFEED TABLE ADJUSTMENTS
1. To raise or lower the infeed table, loosen table
lockhandle (A) Fig. 35, move the table raising and
lowering handle (B) up or down until the table is at the
desired position and tighten table lockhandle (A).
A
B
2. NOTE: When raising or lowering the infeed table a
plunger located on other end of the index stop (C) Fig.
36, automatically stops the table at 1/8 inch depth of cut.
To move the table past this point it is necessary to pull
out index stop (C) and move the table up or down.
IMPORTANT: Always make sure table lockhandle (A) is
tightened before operation. The table lockhandle (A) is
spring-loaded and can be repositioned by pulling out the
handle and repositioning it on the serrated nut located
under the handle.

3. The depth of cut of the infeed table (position of table
in relationship with the cutting circle) can be read with
the pointer (D) Fig. 36, and scale (E). Maximum table
depth adjustment with this 6" jointer is 1/2 inch.
Fig. 36
INFEED TABLE POSITIVE STOPS
Positive stops are provided to limit the height and depth
of the infeed table. To adjust the stops, loosen two
locknuts (F) and (G) Fig. 37, and turn the two adjusting
screws (J) and (K) as required. Then retighten the
locknuts (F) and (G). A good suggestion is to set the
upper positive stop (J) for your finish or final cut. This
means that you will be able to rapidly set the infeed table
for a finish or final cut without checking the scale and
pointer. Also the lower positive stop (K) can be set for the
maximum 1/2" depth of cut or if you desire to limit the
depth of cut, adjust the stop screw (K) accordingly.

OUTFEED TABLE ADJUSTMENTS
For most jointing operations the outfeed table must be
level with the knives at their highest point of
revolution. This means that the knives must be parallel to
the outfeed table and project equally from the
cutterhead. To move the outfeed table up or down,
loosen lockscrew (A) Fig. 38, and turn hand knob (B).
When the outfeed table is level with the knives at their
highest point of revolution, tighten lockscrew (A).

4. CAREFULLY rotate the cutterhead by turning the belt
by hand. The knives should just touch the straight edge.
5. If the knife is high or low at either end, slightly turn the
four screws (D) Fig. 41, in the knife locking bar clockwise
to loosen using the wrench (E) supplied. Then adjust the
height of the knife by turning the knife raising screws (F)
Fig. 42, counterclockwise to lower and clockwise to raise
the knife.
NOTE: If the knife is to be lowered it will be necessary to
wear protective gloves and carefully push down on the
knife with a piece of scrap wood after screws (F) have
been turned.
6. Repeat these procedures for adjusting the remaining
two knives.

“Gibs” are provided to take up all play between the mating
dovetail ways of the base and the infeed and outfeed
tables. The “gib” for the infeed table is shown at (A) Fig. 46,
and the “gib” for the outfeed table is shown at (B) Fig. 47.
Proper “gib” adjustment is necessary for the correct functioning of the jointer. The “gibs” were adjusted at the
factory and should require no further adjustment. If it
becomes necessary to adjust the “gibs”, proceed as
follows:
C
F
C
1. To adjust the infeed or outfeed table “gibs,” loosen three
locknuts (F) Fig. 46, for the infeed table or two
locknuts (G) Fig. 47, for the outfeed table. For the infeed
table, make sure the table locking lever is loose. For the
outfeed table, make sure the table locking screw (E)
Fig. 47, is loose.
A
Fig. 46
2. Tighten or loosen three gib adjustment screws (C)
Fig. 46, as necessary for the infeed table or two gib
adjustment screws (D) Fig. 47, as necessary for the outfeed
table; starting with the lower screw first and as you
proceed to the top screw, gently raise the outboard edge
of the table that is being adjusted. This will offset any tendency for the table casting to “droop or sag” and permit
the gib to be adjusted to a secure fit. After the gibs have
been adjusted, tighten locknuts (F) Fig. 46, (G) Fig. 47, table
locking screw (E) Fig. 47, and infeed table locking lever.
D

FENCE OPERATION
The fence can be moved across the table and can tilt 45
degrees right or left at any position on the table as
follows:
1. To move the fence across the table, loosen lock
handle (A) Fig. 48, slide fence to the desired position on
the table and tighten lockhandle (A). As the fence is
moved across the table, the rear cutterhead guard (B)
covers and guards the cutterhead in back of the fence.
NOTE: Lock handle (A) is spring-loaded and can be
repositioned by pulling up on the handle and
repositioning it on the serrated nut located underneath
the hub of the handle.
B

3. Tilt the fence to the desired angle, in or out, and
tighten lock handle (C) Fig. 49. IMPORTANT: When
cutting bevels and the angle is small there is little
difference whether the fence is tilted in or out; however,
at angles approaching 45 degrees it may become
difficult to hold the work securely against the fence when
the fence is tilted out. In these cases we suggest that the
fence be tilted toward the table, as shown in Fig. 49. The
fence will form a V-shape with the tables and the work is
easily pressed into the pocket while passing across the
knives.
Fig. 49

ADJUSTING FENCE GUARDS
Two guards, one of which is shown at (A) Fig. 55, are provided on each side of the fence bracket to close up the opening
between the fence bracket (B) and the fence (C) limiting access to the cutterhead. When the fence is tilted, the guard
(A) Fig. 56, can be pushed to the rear as shown. After the fence is returned to the 90 degree position, push the guard
(A) Fig. 56, forward to close up the opening. Fig. 55, illustrates the guard (A) properly adjusted.
REPLACING AND RESETTING KNIVES
If the knives are removed from the cutterhead for replacement or sharpening, care must be used in removing, replacing and resetting them. Proceed as follows:
1. DISCONNECT MACHINE FROM POWER SOURCE.
2. Move the fence to the rear and remove the cutterhead guard (C) Fig. 39.
BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL THAT YOUR HANDS DO NOT COME IN CONTACT WITH THE KNIVES.
3. Using 8x10 mm open end wrench (A) Fig. 57, slightly
loosen the four locking screws (B) in each knife slot by
turning the screws (B) clockwise. This relieves stress in

MACHINE USE
The following directions will give the beginner a start on jointer operations. Use scrap pieces of lumber to check settings
and to get the feel of the operations before attempting regular work.
NOTE: THE KNIVES ON THE JOINTER WILL NOT WEAR EVENLY BY FEEDING THE WOOD THROUGH THE SAME
SPOT ON THE TABLE EVERY TIME. FEED THE WOOD THROUGH THE JOINTER AT DIFFERENT SPOTS ON THE
TABLE WHEN POSSIBLE, TO HELP ELIMINATE UNEVEN WEAR OF THE KNIVES.
ALWAYS USE CUTTERHEAD GUARD AND KEEP HANDS AWAY FROM CUTTERHEAD. ALWAYS
USE PUSH BLOCKS WHENEVER POSSIBLE. NEVER MAKE JOINTING AND PLANING CUTS
DEEPER THAN 1/8" IN ONE PASS.
PLACEMENT OF HANDS DURING FEEDING
At the start of the cut, the left hand holds the work firmly against the infeed table and fence, while the right hand pushes
the work toward the knives. After the cut is underway, the new surface rests firmly on the outfeed table as shown in
Fig. 64. The left hand should then be moved to the work on the outfeed table, at the same time maintaining flat contact
with the fence. The right hand presses the work forward, and before the right hand reaches the cutterhead, it should
be moved to the work on the outfeed table.
NEVER PASS HANDS DIRECTLY OVER THE CUTTERHEAD.
22
DEFINITIONS OF JOINTING AND PLANING OPERATIONS
Fig. 62
Fig. 63
1. JOINTING OPERATIONS – Jointing cuts or edge
jointing are made to square an edge of a workpiece. The
workpiece is positioned on the jointer with the narrow
edge of the workpiece on the infeed table and the major
flat surface of the workpiece against the fence, as shown
in Fig. 62. The workpiece is moved from the infeed table,
across the cutterhead to the outfeed table.
2. PLANING OPERATIONS – Planing or surfacing are
identical to the jointing operation except for the position
of the workpiece. For planing, the major flat surface of
the workpiece is placed on the infeed table of the jointer
with the narrow edge of the workpiece against the fence,
as shown in Fig. 63. The workpiece is moved from the
infeed table, across the cutterhead to the outfeed table.
Use push blocks when performing planing operations
whenever possible.
JOINTING AN EDGE
This is the most common operation for the jointer. Set
the guide fence square with the table. Depth of cut
should be the minimum required to obtain a straight
edge. Hold the best face of the piece firmly against the
fence throughout the feed as shown in Fig. 65. Maximum
depth of cut should not be more than 1/8” (3.175 mm) in
one pass.

except for the position of the workpiece. For planing, the
major flat surface of the workpiece is placed on the infeed
table of the jointer with the narrow edge of the workpiece
against the fence, a shown in Fig. 67. The workpiece is
moved from the infeed table, across the cutterhead to the
outfeed table establishing a flat surface on the workpiece
Always use push blocks when performing planing operations and never pass your hands directly over the
cutterhead. Maximum depth of cut should not be more
than 1/8" in one pass.
Fig. 67
BEVELING
To cut a bevel, lock the fence at the required angle and
run the work across the knives while keeping the work
firmly against the fence and tables. Several passes may
be necessary to arrive at the desired result. When the
angle is small, there is little difference whether the fence
is tilted to the right or left. However, at greater angles
approaching 45 degrees, it is increasingly difficult to hold
the work properly when the fence is tilted to the right.
The advantage of the double-tilting fence is appreciated
under such conditions.
When tilted to the left, the fence forms a V-shape with
the tables, and the work is easily pressed into the pocket
while passing it across the knives as shown in Fig. 68. If
the bevel is laid out on the piece in such direction that
this involves cutting against the grain, it will be better to
tilt the fence to the right.
Fig. 68
TAPER CUTS
One of the most useful jointer operations is cutting an edge to a taper. This method can be used on a wide variety of
work. Tapered legs of furniture are a common example.
Instead of laying the piece on the infeed table, lower the forward end of the work onto the outfeed table. Do this very
carefully, as the piece will span the knives, and they will take a “bite” from the work with a tendency to kick back unless
the piece is firmly held. Now push the work forward as in ordinary jointing. The effect is to plane off all the stock in front
of the knives, to increasing depth, leaving a tapered surface.
The ridge left by the knives when starting the taper may be removed by taking a very light cut according to the regular
method for jointing, with the infeed table raised to its usual position.
Practice is required in this operation, and the beginner is advised to make trial cuts on waste material. Taper cuts over
part of the length and a number of other special operations can easily be done by the experienced craftsman.
CUTTING A RABBET
When making a rabbet cut, as shown in Fig. 69, the
cutterhead guard must be removed. AFTER THE
RABBET CUT IS COMPLETED, BE CERTAIN GUARD
IS REPLACED.
1. Adjust the fence so that the distance between the end
of the knives and the fence is equal to the width of the
rabbet.
2. Lower the infeed table an amount equal to the depth
of the rabbet. If the rabbet is quite deep, it may be
necessary to cut it in two or more passes. In that event,
the table is lowered an amount equal to about half the
depth of the rabbet for the first pass, then lowered again
to proper depth to complete the cut. Maximum depth of
cut when rabbeting with this jointer is 1/2 inch.
Fig. 69

PLANING WARPED PIECES
If the wood to be planed is dished or warped, take light
cuts until the surface is flat. Avoid forcing such material
down against the table; excessive pressure will spring it
while passing the knives, and it will spring back and
remain curved after the cut is completed.
PLANING SHORT OR THIN WORK
When planing short or thin pieces, always use push
blocks to minimize all danger to the hands. Fig. 70,
illustrates using the Delta Push Blocks properly.
DO NOT PERFORM PLANING OPERATIONS ON MATERIAL SHORTER THAN
10 INCHES (254 mm), NARROWER
THAN 3/4 INCH (19 mm), WIDER THAN
6 INCHES (152.4 mm) OR LESS THAN
1/2 INCH (12.7 mm) THICK

DIRECTION OF GRAIN
Avoid feeding work into the jointer against the grain as
shown in Fig. 72. The result will be chipped and
splintered edges. Feed with the grain as shown in Fig.

MAINTENANCE
After considerable use, the knives will become dull and it will not be possible to do accurate work. Unless badly
damaged by running into metal or other hard material, the knives may be sharpened as follows:
WHETTING KNIVES
DISCONNECT
MACHINE
FROM
POWER SOURCE.
Use a fine carborundum stone, cover it partly with paper
as indicated in Fig. 70 to avoid marking the table. Lay the
stone on the infeed table, lower the table and turn the
cutterhead forward until the stone lies flat on the bevel of
the knife as shown. Hold the cutterhead from turning,
and whet the beveled edge of the knife, stroking
lengthwise by sliding the stone back and forth across the
table. Do the same amount of whetting on each of the
three knives.

KEEP MACHINE CLEAN
Periodically blow out all air passages with dry compressed
air. All plastic parts should be cleaned with a soft damp
cloth. NEVER use solvents to clean plastic parts. They could
possibly dissolve or otherwise damage the material.
Wear ANSI Z87.1 safety glasses while
using compressed air.
FAILURE TO START
Should your machine fail to start, check to make sure the
prongs on the cord plug are making good contact in the
outlet. Also, check for blown fuses or open circuit breakers
in the line.
LUBRICATION
Apply household floor paste wax to the machine table and
extension table or other work surface weekly.
PROTECTING CAST IRON FROM RUST
To clean and protect cast iron tables from rust, you will
need the following materials: 1 pushblock from a jointer,
1 sheet of medium Scotch-Brite™ Blending Hand Pad, 1
can of WD-40®, 1 can of degreaser, 1 can of TopCote®
Aerosol. Apply the WD-40 and polish the table surface
with the Scotch-Brite pad using the pushblock as a
holddown. Degrease the table, then apply the TopCote®
accordingly.
