Delta Rockwell (Crascent) 8

I was fortunate enough to find this old 1954 Delta Rockwell 8" Jointer on the art-deco Cast Iron Base. This was a real find. It's equipped with a 2 HP original Delta motor, wired for 220 volts. She runs great and will be a great restoration project. The only things wrong with it are the broken Delta badge on the front and it's missing a part for the depth gauge. Other than that, it's in fine shape and one heavy beast!

Delta 8" Jointer Manual
by: Butch

I found this exact jointer on sale on Ebay for $400...It was removed from a school shop outside of Baltimore,Md a few years ago.It was in fantastic shape. well worth the $$ and the 2 hour trip to get it. they don't make machines like this any longer,which is a sad testament for todays' manufactures,regardless of where they're made.
I found a manual also on Ebay, which was a photocopy of an original,but was the complete manual and parts sheet.price was about 10 bucks.

I have a 1959 that I'm trying to sell. I have someone interested in it, but not sure of it's value. The guy wants to know how much I want. Anyone know it's worth?

1954 rockwell jointer
by: William Hurt 111

I own a 1954 rockwell jointer like the one posted by Ben Anderson in northern Cal.I want to rebuild it but I would like to get a hold of the owners manual before hand.The model# is missing from the side of the machine where it was riveted on and delta can't help me out without the model#. Is there any possibility or contacting Ben Anderson or can anyone else help me out with this?

Nice looking machine. I have one I haven't restored. It's serial number 215B. I called Delta and they were suprised it still works. Mine is completely intact including the labels, Delta, Milwalkie, Cresent and Rockwell. Joe.
