I got a piece for an older Delta 6” jointer. It was out of production and unavailable every where else. They had to machine it. Took about 4 or 5 months to get it. I was just about to email them and ask for a refund when it showed up. It fit perfectly. I never had any communication from them at any time. Reading their website they stock new parts, that are available. They salvage machines and if new or salvage aren’t available. They will occasionally make a production run for a particular part.

There are several ‘reviews’ concerning Renovo on LJ if you search.
Definitely has mixed reviews, everything went smooth for me.
Guess I was one of lucky ones as well?

I too prefer the EReplacmentParts website, have never had any experience with renovo… Sorry. I hate when stuff like that happens, good luck buddy.
