Ping: B a r r y

Hey, did you get your DJ20 Parts? I hope you are having better luck than I am.
I moved the base and top to the basement last weekend and I I finally had gotten the time to finish assembling the fence and found out that it was defected. When tightning the fence carriage to the Jointer base the carriage return keeps pulling up and is not level with the outfeed table. When I took a square to the fence carriage it has a gap on one side hence causing it to ride up when I tighten it.
As you would say.... DOINK'd by Delta
I guess I'll call them on Tuesday and have them send me a new one.

The parts arrived Friday, the jointer is now in operation. The belt is an off the shelf Gates, complete with packaging, the bolts are silver (vs. black) and the guard is a different color (light gray vs. blue-gray) than the rest of the tool. The package was shipped from Porter Cable in MA.
It's almost as if they came up with a guard and sent someone to a local hardware store for the rest of the parts. <G>
It *does* joint nicely.

The fence is twisted, or the carriage is bent?
I can't complain about the response time, I just wish they got it right the first time.
Let me know how it goes. Tools-Plus offered to help me if necessary. maybe you should bring them into the loop.

The carriage return is not machined properly. You can see it plain as day because there are two sides and one side is nicely machined flat and the other side is not.

I'll call Delta and have them ship me the carriage directly. That way it will get to me faster instead of having to drive out to TP. Besides, every time I go out there I spend money. I was there Friday and dropped another grand.

I did the same, but called TP just to see if they could help.
