    Default Hyco 6" Jointer Restoration

    Hi All finally starting to do a bit of work on my Hyco Jointer. Thought I would start on the easy bits first and run into a snag straight away. After pulling the fence apart its obviously missing a spring in the lockdown mechanism and I have no idea what it would look like or which side of the handle it would go. Here are some pics of what I have.

    Any thoughts or experience with these would be greatly appreciated.

    Umm, it's all there !
    What makes you think it has a spring missing?

    I would have thought that the handle wouldn’t have just floated around on the shaft between the front and rear locking nuts.... I’ve never seen this type of mechanism before so don’t really know.....there was also a small piece of gal pipe that seemed to be added as a spacer..I assumed to replace the spring... certainly will be guided but the more experienced...

    I think its the same as a Woodfast buzzer fence by the looks in that the knob and lever is supposed to be loose so it can be backed off the nut and hang on the shaft pointing to the ground. Not held at some angle getting in the way. Although a sprung version could still be adjusted off the nut .
    The inner nut adjusts fence angle and the outer adjusts fence position . A spring in there would favour one direction and you need both directions.
    As Matty said . It looks right .
    I have one of these as a garden ornament . Ill go have a look as well .

    Your correct Rob, Charles & Hunting had that style of fence on their jointers and then later wood fast.
    US companies such as Walker-turner and Delta were the first innovators of this style of fence on many of their early jointers.

    No no not at all Gazza . Itís just where it ended up . To good to throw . We have a Hyco scroll saw somewhere as well, indoors . This buzzer was a gift from a friend and had been left outside for many years before I got it . We went and picked up some machines and my poor sick friend wanted this . Unfortunatly he kept getting much more ill and passed away . All withinn a year and a half . His wife said for me to keep it . So itís a nice reminder of a good very knowledgable cabinet maker friend who had a deep understanding of the cabinet industry type wood machining . I donít think Iíll need it to use but may take the electric 3 phase switch and motor and pass it on to someone in need . Or just keep looking at it .

    And a fitting reminder for your friend I would say.......

    I did a bit more work on that fence... and I am thinking it has had a repair done to it. That little bit of gal pipe seems to be there to give enough space so that the handle can disengage from one nut before engaging with the other.
    Not sure if this is normal but the threaded bit marked with an arrow is actually threaded into the backing plate also. Which is different to Stew's Hyco Jointer Fence.

    mine has a spacer, itís just not connected to that thread. Other than that itís essentially the same setup.

    Cheers stew

    OK another question to my knowledgeable friends and experts in all things rusty.
    Here is a pic of the top of the fence.
    IMG_0260a.jpg
    Do Hyco fences normally have a ground flat surface on the top... and if so what is the purpose of this face. It has two 1/4" Whitworth threaded holes about 25mm deep, one at each end. To go to this trouble I would think it had a useful purpose other than a spot for gunk to gather. Any images I have found just have the timber face but nothing attached on top of the fence. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    My garden ornament has part of a rear cover plate covering the belt attached by three screws and one empty screw hole back up the other end .

    Thanks Auscab... do you reckon that is original paint on the top of the fence or a repaint at some point in its life? The rear cover is an interesting concept...what would normally cover the cutters behind the fence? Mine has a machined bracket attached to the In feed table with a post that had rod in it. I was wondering if that might have something attached to it as a cover...can’t come up with another use for it... I would be interested in seeing some pics of the belt cover...mine is open and I would like to make it as safe as possible
