Topic tags/keywords: dust hood 22-660 dc33 rc33

Cheers to all,

I have been looking for a cast iron dust hood for the 22-660, DC33 or RC33.
I was hoping that someone had a used one to spare for the right price.
I have had no luck online searching for this item and the one that I did find had a price tag equivalent to the price that I paid for the used 22-660 planer ($200). Can anyone recommend where I can find a used dust hood (no luck on EBAY) for a good price or would anyone have one to sell. Thanks.

- Tony

Good Luck.
The Delta cast iron dust hoods were notorious for cracking/breaking as they were only supported by 2 bolts on bottom. Didn’t take much of hit on dust pipe exit chute to break lower section from bolts. :(

Jet made a clone of the Delta 13 inch planer. They offer a $100 sheet metal hood that might fit your Delta?

Only other option is to modify a sheet metal HVAC register ‘boot’ duct to fit.
Not pretty, but costs less than $20.

Cheers!

On mine, I just used a flat piece of plywood attached to where the dust shroud would attach.

I cut a hole in the plywood, and attached a 4 inch dust port. It works well. Not perfectly, but it gets probably 95% of the mess.

this is with a little 1hp Jet collector.

Don’t over think it.

Captain Klutz,

Do you know the model number of the 13” Jet. I have looked online but nothing that resembles the dust hood for the RC33/DC33.

I had a Rockwell 13” planer for which I had to fabricate a dust hood. If you can weld, it’s not hard to make one from 16 gauge to 1/8” mild steel. Mine also had shattered cover for the drive gears from when the chain had broken and piled up in a corner (which is why I got such a good price on it thru CL). Again, not hard to weld one up. But it is a fussy, time consuming process, which made me appreciate why they made them from cast iron. Once you have the mold, just pour in molten iron and you can crank them out by the dozens (hundred? thousands?).
