6 " DELUXE JOINTER OPERATORS GUIDE The 6 " DeIuxe Jointer is light in weight , ruggedly designed , and has a large working capacity . This ma - chine is accurately asse ~ blcdand equipped for use in sash , door , furniture , and cabinet factories , contractors , box manufacturers , pattern , woodworking , and main - tenance shops , schoo ! ~ , and many other woodworking and industrial plants and shops . It can be used for the following operations : Jointing edges of stock , jointing ends of stock , jointing warped pieces , jninting thin stock , jointing narrow stock , rab - cutting , stop chamfering . and beting , beveling . taper many other additional operations . The jointer is so named because of the type oI work it is designed to do , namely the jointing or planing of edges on materials so that they can be glued or joined together . The jointer is sometimes erroneously re - a planer , but the machine differs from a ferred to as planer in that it is designed to work the edges of mate - plane surfaces . rials rather than Maximum depth of cut is 5 inch . The maximum of cut is 6 inches . The overall length of the work width , table is 42v8 inches . The overall dimensions of the machine are : 14 inches wide , 473h itches long , and 33 % inches high on our steel stand . IMPORTANT Jointer With Steel Stand . Fig . 1 . Rockwell Jointers are carefully tested and inspect - ed before shipment , and if properly used will give perfect results . However , certain adjustments are necessary in service , and if you are to receive the ittmost from your machine , it is imperative that you machine stand complete with ~ crewsn , uts , washers , read the following instr ~ ctionkcarefully . and a wrench for assembly No . 50 - 406C , dust chnte There is considerable risk in operating a jointer , con - onIy No . 50 - 800 , caster attachment No . 49 - 363 . sequently the operator cannot be too careful .

It also can be tilted to any desired position lip to 45 degrees to the right or left . See Fig . 5 . This fence guides the work to the full depth of the front \ r , ork table past the revolving knives of the clutter head and well onto the rear zable . The raising and lowering mechanisms of the front and rear tables are operated by hand - wheels with a free turning hand grip . and which are conveniently in the front of the machine , one on the right located Fig . 4 . Showing Frnre and Start of Matcrial . The motor speed with 60 cycle power and 1725 rpm , will run the cutting head at 4500 rpm . This speed is obtained with a 234 ' ' cutter head pulley NO . 5275 and a 7 " motor pulley No . 5700 . Please specify when or - dering the motor pulley the correct bore to fit the motor shaft . For 50 and 25 cycle current , use a 1425 rpm motor , run the cutter head at 3700 rpm . This which will speed is obtained with a 294 " arbor pulley No . 5275 and a 7 " motor pulley No . 5700 . Please specify when ordering the mator pulley the correct bore to fit the motor shaft . Use V - belt No . 560 which has an outside circum - ference of 58.31 " in conjunction with the above mote - and arbor pulleys when it is mounted on our steel stand .
