This is my 6″ longbed jointer, with the option cast iron stand.
More info coming soon!
I just purchased a 12″ Davis & Wells table saw.
I’m having problems with the blade height adjustment. There seems to be some grinding that does not feel right. There is no obvious adjustment that I can see. Any ideas?
I need info on the blade size and blade holders for this jointer. I have one but these parts are missing.
Damian, you need to inspect the threads on the adjustment screw. It’s probably a acme thread and is common to collect dust / sap and gum up. May need cleaning and a lube, I think a dry lube paste would work well there.
I bought a Delta Milwaukee jointer with the serial # 86 7825. Does anyone know the model# and date of this machine? THANKS!!!!!!!!!
Dennis, give Delta a call and they can give you the model number and date of your machine.
Dennis, Your jointer was built it 1950, Have fun..
I have restored plenty Davis & Wells equimpment. D&W in my own shop two table saws, boring machine, jointer, bandsaw and shaper.
The table saw raising lowering of the blade works from a worm gear and sprocket it gets dirty and rusted.
It is best to go thru the complete trunnion assembly.
To work on the Davis & wells table saws “turn them upside down”.
If you dont things drop and break.
I have a 6″ long bed jointer with stand and big org. motor . And it still works great . Bought it about 40years ago from a retired contractor in AZ. I think that he may have moved it from R.I. when he came to AZ. in the 40′s . His family is all gone so no way to check history of this tool . They just don’t make them like they use to !!!!

I have a Davis/Wells 6″ joiner and all of a sudden it will not rotate. When I grab the belt and pull on it by hand the blade turns part way then clink I can hear it hitting something. Any ideas?
