Heston And Anderson Jointer


Hey guys picked myself up a beautiful 1940's vintage Heston and Anderson 6" jointer. A steal at $50 on kijiji. Trying to align the bed. It's about 0.022 out quite a bit for a jointer. Any tips on aligning the bed? It's dovetail style bed ways. Some guys have told me to shim it but where would I put the shims?

What does the back look like?

There should be some gib bolts on the back side ways that will tweak the beds around.

There is 4 bolts on the back on each bed. I tightened them up and it seems to be true now. The problem is now that the bed movement is very stiff

I would back the bolts out, pull out the gibs, clean them and squirt some lubricant in the ways.

Go over it a lube what you can. I like the H&A stuff, they made nice long bed jointers.

Re: Heston And Anderson Jointer


Thanks for the info. So the gibs are held in with those 4 bolts? Like set screws? Along side the dovetail? Ya it is a great jointer. I absolutely love and the long bed is quite the bonus. I'll take some more pics of the bed and the dovetails. I really appreciate the help
