If you own one of these you know the hood is no longer available. Here is my solution. I am selling my unit and a fellow LJ inquired regarding the hood, so figured it was worth sharing.

I believe the pictures are explanatory. However, the key points are these; turn the blade guard upside down and use the leading edge which now turns upward as a support and anchor to bolt to. For the bottom, just purchase a couple of button screws to hold a ledger that supports the hood. Go to Sears Parts Direct to get the size, you can order them there or pick them up at HD. The holes are there to attach the Delta prefabricated solution at it’s bottom. The one element that doesn’t come through in the pics is the fact that I put a shallow ledger on the inside of the hood to rest atop the blade guard and lined it with an adhesive foam strip.

My guess would be that the other brand’s units are all pretty similar and some variation would work on their older models.

Thanks for the inquiry and hope this was beneficial.

Nice design and build. The ingenuity of woodworkers never ceases to amaze me.

Now you got me thinking… I have the 22-540 and always wished the darn thing wouldn’t recycle the chips.

Lorin – neat design. Am curious why there’s a gap along the bottom of the hood, between the horizontal “base” of the plywood hood and the ledger support strip attached to the planer. Doesn’t that allow chips to spill, and reduce the suction from any vacuum attached to the hood? Please explain.
