Over the weekend I got my jointer which used to be my grandpa’s out of storage, it’s a 1978 Craftsman. It has some light surface rust and I am sure the blades could use sharpened.

I am looking forward to having it ready to use.

I just picked up one of those used a couple months ago and it works fantasticly! Very happy with it! I think you will be too once you get it tuned up. I will say the best tool I bought for that was the oneway multigauge. Perfect setup tool for jointers and a variety of other uses. Highly recommend!

This is a good tool. I own 2 of those; one since it was new in ‘77. While I am sure it isn’t the best, it is a good tool. Thanks for sharing.
