Delta jointer - bearings?
I have an old 4" Delta jointer that has served me (and the previous owner well for 25+ years) and I, like some of the other posts, have been afraid to change out and sharpen the knives. But now I really need to replace the bearings, which will force me to replace knives anyway ! (*Lesson learned - don't let the knives get that dull.)
Does anyone have suggestions for replacement? Service center with bearing puller capability seems to be in order. I live in the Washington DC area. I'd hate to give up this old cast iron beauty for something new. I only need edge joining so the 4" has been good enough for me, and space is an issue anyway.
