Well if you WAIT long enough, things happen. This was was Grandfathers jointer. He died in 1976. The jointer went to my Uncle, he died in 2001, it went to his son. Sadly he is diagnosed with cancer (3 – 6 months). He knew I always wanted it ! I was able to remove the RUST (No one ever used it since Grandpa, they always thought they might ONE DAY. I removed the 1/3 hp motor, belt, fence. Cleaned the top and then remembered I need “before & after” pics . If you notice this was made from channel iron. The in-feed table has been machined to 1/32” lower than back table. THATS it for adjustments.NONE !!!!One cutting depth only ! I guess whatever it took to remove saw cut marks back then !
Kind of matches the table saw he made using ARBOR , No adjustments up-down. Fence was C-clamped to table.
Grandpa DID have all his fingers, Uncles all had there digits as well.
The jointer did work. The day I picked it up I plugged it in and run it, took a small board and pushed it through.
I am scrapping the wooden stand, hopefully make a metal one. Thinking of using this for rough lumber only. Price was right. “WAIT 36 years and NO CASH INVOLVED !”
