My Delta DJ-20 8" Jointer Restoration Project (Part 1)

I have been looking on Craigslist for an 8" parallelogram jointer for over a year now. I finally managed to score this Delta DJ-20 8" jointer (model 37-350) with a Byrd Shelix head for $800. There is some rust, but the tables only have a little bit of pitting in about 3 spots.

You can see here there is a bit of rust on the fence assembly.

Here the paint on the aluminum guard is pretty worn.

Here the table height adjustment mechanism is covered in a combination of sawdust and rust.
