Hi all. Its been a long time since I have posted anything but I am
back in my woodworking mode again. I just picked up a
Delta/Milwaukee/Rockwell 6" jointer tonight and thought that someone
might be able to help me identifying it. It is currently too dark to
see any model markings on it as I need a new ballast in my shop light.
The serial # is ak4816. It is belt driven and has 3 cutting heads. I
am really exited I only paid $40 for it. Can't wait to fire it up and
make some sawdust. Can anyone help me figure out when it was made and
what the model is. telling me where the model # would be helpful, or
any help for that matter since i have never had a jointer before.
thanks in advance

jointer in question, and there's a picture. It may not be exactly the
one you have, but there's a model number which will give you a head
start (by the way, I think Delta/Rockwell's jointers had a 37-xxx
