Jointer teardown and cleanup

Post by pieceseeker »

Hi all, starting to clean up some of my aquired loot. This is the start of cleaning up the jointer. I've already cleaned up the belt sander fence and bandsaw table to stop anymore rust to those items. Thought I would take pics and maybe have some questions along the way.

Not horrible rust, but rust non-the-less.

Not very difficult so far. I wonder what the extra 2 holes next to the 2 where the jointer knife drum is attached?

Going to be using EvapoRust to clean the rust. The longest piece is 22 inches long, so had to find a flat bottom square tub big enough.

Only able to use 1 gallon of solution (EvapoRust is not cheap), so the level is rather shallow. The large pieces can't be totally submerged, so will need to be turned for another soaking.

Did the same process with the Bandsaw table:

Hoping the Jointer surfaces come out as well.

What is you're best way of waxing tables and surfaces? I found on tables, that I can apply a heavy coat of JPW and then let it completely dry before buffing out. It seems to work good, and I think it will provide a thicker coat of rust protection and lubrication for the different working surfaces.

Watching the Sawdust Sessions, anytime Nick used JPW, he would immediately wipe and buff. That may be OK for crome or zinc surfaces, but the tables seem to hold alot of wax with the grind pattern.

Might as well make good use of the extra space in the Vapo bath.

Looks like a great start...I just did this to my jointer...but I didn't have the rust issue.

Make sure to clean the bearing surfaces on the indeed and out feed tables... I used jpw on these sliding surfaces and then hit them with a light dusting of graphite. I also applied graphite to the treads on the adjustment screw.

As far as waxing the tables, I applied jpw and then buffed it right off. About a week afterwards right before I put the reground knives in I plan on doing it again...just for fun. :D

Good luck

Yea, those bearing surfaces will get the bath when I turn the pieces over to soak, and I'll be sure to give them a good coat of JPW.

I'm also waxing the painted surfaces of the tables, it will give them a nice sheen.

Anybody ever replace those bearings in the cutterhead? Looks tricky!

I attempted to and ended up replacing the cutter head with a new one that came complete with bearings. I bent the shaft in the cutter head while attempting to remove bearings..

With that experience, I shall decline giving any advice. The cutter head is not cheap.

Properly equipped, it seems like a simple task.

I have access to a press and many different bearing pullers at my work. I may take a closer look once I'm done with cleaning and waxing.

My progress today!

That amazing EvapoRust takes a lot of the work out of rust removal. A little elbow grease with a stainless steel brush from Harbor Freight after soaking for several hours really does the trick! It does no harm to paint, easy cleanup, non toxic, what more could you ask?
