    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.

    Dennis, give Delta a call and they can give you the model number and date of your machine.

    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 !!!!
    Makin sawdust .
