Topic tags/keywords: jointer

Just thought I would post some pics of my jointer than I got on craigslist for a 100 dollars. The guy selling this got a 8 inch jointer and was selling his six inch because he did not have space for both. It is a 1980 craftsmen jointer. What I was wondering if there is an easy way to enclose the base to contain the shavings because right now they are getting all over.

Do not try to enclose the entire base, your electric motor would get full of dust and chips! If you check
the bottom of the jointer, there should be some way to adapt hose end similar to the Grizzly-G2977 to

For years I used a cardboard box that my big tool box came in. I could slide it out and empty it then put it back. Try making an inverted roof out of flashing material. You can put it together with screws. The shavings will slide down to the bottom and a vacuum can be attached to the side. As Bluepine said you need to keep the chips out of and away from the motor.

You could drill some holes and pop rivet some sheet metal there. You might find a DC hood for that model… run it to a chip collector and you should be set.
