I just picked up a 1955 Rockwell Delta 37-220 6” long bed jointer, to replace my trusty R/D 37-290 4” jointer on the open steel stand. I would just LOVE to find the cast iron, “Art Deco” model # 667 stand pictured in the catalog image below.

If you have one, or know of one, please let me know. Let’s talk…

Don’t think the stand is actually cast iron. Probably folded sheet metal with cast iron parts, like the old Unisaws. Jim

It’s cast iron. According to the 1961 catalog, the #667 stand weighs in, by itself, at 118 pounds! IIRC, it was just a few years after that (1962-3?) that they stopped offering the cast iron stand as a package option (although it was still available as an option) and switched to an enclosed sheet metal stand (in addition to the standard open stand).

As to finding them… they do turn up now and then, and I believe there are a few for sale over at the OWWM classified section (BOYD) right now.

Cheers,
Brad

Almost forgot… you may want to check out this thread over at the OWWM site for a little bit of inspiration:

Faux Machine Bases - Cream of the Crop

Where you will find examples like:

The above are shopmade using mostly wood/MDF (see thread for details). There are some truly amazing faux stands and other parts that may give you a bit of inspiration.

Cheers,

Very much cast iron. I have one sitting in my shop under the 8” joiner
