Topic tags/keywords: delta 6 jointer jointer tool refurbish dj-15

I recently picked up a DJ-15 and it is missing a few socket head cap screws, e.g. M6, M8, M10 in various lengths and quantities. I am on ebay selecting some of the screws based off the parts list, but was wondering a couple things….
First, does it matter if I get the 912 DIN standard or just any old ones will do? And second, the parts list makes no distinction between COARSE or FINE threads, do I just assume these are all coarse?

And lastly does anyone have a guard assembly they want to sell me? I have the actual guard but the pins and support (p/n 112, 114 and 115) are completely missing.
Thanks in advance.

Buy both fine and coarse. The extras probably cost less than shipping another order.

Delta used to distribute a “Common Parts” listing that gave exact details for all of their off the shelf hardware items such as screws, bolts, etc… so you could just run down to your local hardware store and pick up what you needed. Unfortunately, it only lists the ‘old’ part numbers and not the newer long part numbers.

But – I’m sure you can find multiple parts with the same number in the parts listing, so all you need to do is go pull one of them that is still there and look.

As for the missing guard bits – if you can’t find an OEM replacement, it doesn’t look like it would be very difficult to fabricate up something that will work as well as the original… it’s just a spring loaded pivot pin. With a little bit of creativity, you can probably find all the stuff you need down at your local ACE hardware store.

Cheers,
Brad

I just purchased same jointer last week. This is a great jointer. Although mine does not need parts, Delta still has some parts for this. Check their web site for parts using the jointer model number, the 3x-xxx number not dj15.

Thanks Brad and HK. HK do you mind sharing what you paid for one in good shape?
I’ll maybe see if I can fabricate something not too sure what to start with. I have the spring so if anyone has pics of the actual assembly would be much appreciated. The bolts are around 30 bucks after shipping so I’d rather not order double would still like to find out coarse or fine if possible.

Ace hardware has a good selection of socket head cap screws. I believe coarse metric threads are normally used and if a fine thread is used, it will be called out as “fine”. Assume it is a coarse thread.

I paid $550.00. Might be high but I am OK with that. Very solid machine. Goes well with my Unisaw I bought for $200.00 and refurbished.

Thanks MrRon. I just orderes a bunch from eBay individually but didn’t get the black oxide washers which I’ll have to pick up at Ace. I have shiny steel ones but thought maybe the black ones were perhaps a better finish.
HK thanks. I’ll PM u my email for the manual and parts list. Depending where u live that could be on the lower end. i have been seeing them from 500 to $1k. I have the same TS … sounds like we paid the exact amount for both, just my saw was closer to what u paid for the jointer.

I also bought a American made Delta 14” band saw awhile back – like new.

I unfortunately only have a Taiwanese Grizzly 14”, not my favorite tool for sure.

Have your say...
