So I just picked up a 3 digit serial number gray Model 50 Powermatic jointer for $100. It’s pretty clean. It has the original 3 phase GE 3/4 HP motor. My only issue is that it has a strange 3 prong chord. We have a 4 prong 220 outlet but I’m not sure if I have to rewire the jointer with the new plug type of if they make adapter for it. I’ll let you know how it works once I get it figured out. It is also a little different then the other models that I have seen. It has an open stand and rear mounted motor. Either way it was a pretty good deal at $100 and I think it will make a nice addition to my growing shop once I get it setup.
