I picked up a Rockwell 37-600 jointer on craigslist for $50 not too long ago and I never got around to adding it to the blog so here it is…
This is what i got from the buyer. He was even nice enough to deliver it to me. When I got it a checked for flatness and listened to the motor and cutter bearings. All sounded good enough.

I was thinking about sanding and painting for a complete restore. After cleaning the rust off the fence and tables and doing some wet sanding I was pleased with the results. I decided to use the jointer instead of waiting. I removed the cutter head and polished that up nice. The bearings were good to go. I sharpened a set of knives and set everything up. I have been using the jointer for about a month now and I am very pleased. Another great deal from Craigslist. Here is is all cleaned up.
