Modified version of Matthias Wandel’s jointer, using marble tiles underneath the metal tables, an induction motor and segmented cutterhead. I still need to get it on the stand I made for it (guessing it weights around 160-180 lbs). I’ll then take it apart and seal/paint it.

Closer look at the marble:

Where did you get the cutterhead?

-- Measure Twice, cut two, three times, plane, join, sand, coat, sand, coat, sand, coat, buff, wax, polish, brag. It's a process.

I picked it up on ebay for $50.

Thanks. Yours looks really well thought out and finished. I’m not looking forward to taking it apart to paint and seal it.
