I am looking at purchasing a used delta jointer. I know that delta parts are difficult to get. The guy says the cutting head isn’t sharp. I am wondering how hard it would be to find a replacement? What should I use as a replacement?

Also, what is a good price in the Chicagoland area for a delta jointer? Picture of jointer below.

You just need knives. The ones in it can be resharpened or you can buy new ones that fit. There are several aftermarket makers of knives for common jointers like that one.

I dunno about Chicago but in my area I’d guess a fair price would be about $200. I live in So. Cal.

That’s a standard short bed 6” jointer. Two hundred or maybe a bit less sounds about right. It’s relatively finicky to get the knives set right once you sharpen them, but it’s not conceptually difficult. YouTube videos on the process are everywhere.

Have your say...
