15" Delta Planer Rebuild

Last December I won a auction on a 15" Delta planer. I have a heavy 15" import nock-off out in my garage/workshop but the intention is to use it to plane the lumber from a planned bandsaw mill. The 15" Delta is a lighter smaller machine and the folding extension roller tables reduce its size considerably when not in use, perfect for my heated shop.

All cleaned up, shortly after I got it home. It looked good on the outside but after some investigation it was clear that for reliable operation a rebuild was in order. There goes January ☺.

In the picture below is the finished rebuild. Ready to go to work.

This is another long post so I created a separate page for the rebuild. Accessed at the link below.
