    Default Mystery Jointer - Is this a Delta 654?

    Hi all,

    I've inherited an old jointer from my Grandfather's workshop after he passed away recently.

    It's labeled "McPherson Powered Tools" and looks very much like a Delta 654.

    I have not been able to locate much info on McPherson and am wondering if it is a rebadged Delta. Did McPherson import machines into Australia and rebadge them?

    From the reading I've done in this thread I think I have a 654 model based on the fact that my stand almost looks home made. In any event the feet are different to the Delta 37-205 open stand model.

    New Here- Delta Jointer planning restoration - Old Woodworking Machines

    The motor is 3 phase which I will need to swap out for a single phase unit as I don't have 3 phase in my workshop. I was looking at using a VFD with the existing motor, but have been told the motor does not appear compatible to use a VFD.

    I am considering doing a full breakdown and restoring the machine by repainting etc. At the very least I'll obviously clean up the tables and fence. It also needs new knives, so I need to confirm what unit I have so I can buy the correct knives.

    If anyone can confirm the brand and model or any other information, I'd appreciate it.

    Thank you

    Canít help with who made it but found this catalogue

    It looks similar to the V342. Interestingly the cutter head on the Delta 8Ē had a part number of 342.

    Thanks for posting that.

    I agree it does look very similar.

    Are knives standard or do I need to find the exact model?
