I just finished this Jointer today and ready to make new and more challenging projects.
here are the pictures and a video.
the chasis, shown here with the cutterhead installed and fitted into the customized pillow block that i ordered from a machinist.
the motor now installed.
with new belt.
the cutting depth adjustment mechanism.
infeed and outfeed tables.
the gap between tables is just enough for the blade adjustment guide.
tables are now installed and lined with 1.5mm stainless sheets. Here checking the coplanarity of the two tables at zero cutting depth.
temporarily sitting on two benches.
now with belt cover, blade guard, and fence.
me after doing a test cut.
