Default Delta Jointer Model 37-190

I purchased this machine new in Feb of 1998. I do keep records.

The past few years I had to move it to the barn loft with the engine driven
A/C for storage. I did hose it down with RP and had it covered but the few
years in storage was not good for it. So I am rebuilding it. Although the
bearing were not bad I am replacing them. New belt and a few other small
parts to bring it back to 100%. I have a few (wood) projects I want work on
over the winter and since it is a balmy 18°F here this morning. I guess
winter is here.

All in all on disassembly other than the rust it was in really good shape, and
the rust was on exposed surfaces all the gibs and ways were rust free.

I am going to re-black oxide a bunch of the parts, waiting on some of the
chemicals needed to show up this week.

After you get the rust of the tables, use paste floor wax, 3 applications. Goes a long way in stopping surface rust.

I used concentrated phosphoric acid for derusting.
Followed with an alkaline cleaner and some RP to prevent flash rust.

Johnson's paste wax, expert advise from an old cabinet maker...

But the bastard is younger than me. Also my shop is always a
challenge for rust control...

I got a slightly smaller Delta jointer off Craigslist awhile back. Haven't used it, but it seems to be in good shape. I got it for free, and the former owner was a really nice guy.

I used to have a tiny Craftsman jointer with an integral motor that I used for one or two small projects, and it really saved the day. Sold it for a good price to a guy who needed a highly portable unit.

Boiled linseed oil will protect steel quite well.

But it does not have desirable frictional characteristics, for this application.
