Delta Crescent 8" Jointer w/ Cast Iron Base

by Dan Swartz
(New Sewickley Pennsylvania)

Purchased 11/2010 from a local school district. This machine had been in storage for several years. Machine was completely disassembled, cleaned, sanded and repainted, bearings both for the motor and jointer head replaced, along with the belt, power cord and blades. This is a 4 bladed machine with a 1HP motor. Cast iron base has the raised ribs polished along with other machined surfaces.

Vintage Tools Restoring
by: Ken Wilhelm


My father was in the cabinet (commercial) business all his life. I have his tools.

They are:
1.) Walker-Turner 6 Inch Jointer, Plainfield, NJ
Works fine. 1/2 horse motor. I want to sell to someone who will appreciate an early 40's power tool used in professional factory. Also...

2.) Delta Milwaukee Homecraft Shaper-Router,
serial # AY 1269. motor has reversing switch, 1/2 horse. I have all the knives ans set-up for countless work. works fine. same effort as above. I want a buyer with appreciation for vintage power tools. Usede in factory.

3.) Craftsman 62" band saw, also used in factory. Works fine, custom stand, old too.

Any suggestions as to value and who may have interest? I love your Grand kids comment.

Congratulations... VERY inspiring!

A great rig, and an amazing job bringing it back to life.

I'll share this picture with my kids so they understand when their father goes a little nuts for a big, heavy pile of rusting metal at auction. Hopefully I'll hear cheers of "Go, Daddy go!"...
