  • Poitras jointer part function?

    Heyo guys,

    I just bought a poitras 8 in. Jointer. It’s missing two parts, a set screw and another piece, #11 in the picture. It is labeled, “Circle segment 5/8 x7/8.” Does anybody know what the purpose of this part is? And where I might find one if needed?

    Thank you, Dave. Click image for larger version

    Obviously part of the cutter guard, should be easy enough to make if you had or can get a piece 7/8 od 5/8 id and grind or cut to fit.
    Thickness would be Im assuming a slide fit into part 23.
