I’m selling the mortiser because I don’t use it enough and it takes up a relatively large amount of space in my small shop. The sander and drill press I’m selling because I’ve upgraded and am no longer using them. All three machines are in great condition. The only exception is the handle that changes speeds on the d...

Long term lurker, first time poster. Go easy on me! I’ve been looking for a decent, cheap jointer for a while now. I was inspired by this refurbishing job and I found something similar here. I think I can get the guy to take $75 for it. Lots of rust, but all parts seem to be there. Obviously I want to see/hear the motor in action...
