surprised to see a “newer” machine have that much rust. I just picked up a 16” H.B. Smith thats 100 years old thats got as much as than that. different paints, and probably more coats.

Yeah, it seems like rust was forming wherever the paint or finish had rubbed off or where sawdust had caked up on some grease. My guess is the original owner didn’t really take the time to get all the cosmoline off so sawdust eventually stuck to and got caked on providing a nice wick for moisture to collect. I’m guessing this is still a 1990’s jointer as its the older 37-350 (non X version) but also made in Taiwan.

thats a shame. preventative maintenance doesn’t take very much time or effort.
good luck with the rest of your restoration
