Nice find! Get a nice motor for it and she’ll be in business before you know it.

That’s some good looking old iron. I think you will really like the end mounted fence, it’s nice to have the extended support for your material. General used this style on their 6” jointer for years. Adjusting the tilt can be touchy though. I used to have a jointer with an end mounted fence and found that by tightening the lock down just enough so you could tap it and move it it made adjustment easier. Grizzly sells nice handwheels that will probably fit at a decent price. Check out the bearings, google up a manual to see what the speed and pulley size should be then drop the proper 1hp motor in that bad boy and your on your way.

I have the motor and pulleys and they work fine, the picture of the base was after disassembly, the bearings seemed to be ok but I’ll look at them more closely later, the belt that was on it had such a memory in it I couldn’t roll the pulleys by hand but by chance I found a link belt in the trash at work and it was a perfect fit
