I love these old jointers! I have two at the present time, one gets used regularly, the other is awaiting refurbishment. They purr like a kitten and do a good job, though these days I follow up with a few licks from a hand plane. I’m running one with a 1/3 hp motor, and I feel my late grandfather’s presence in the room whenever I run it. This would be the last power tool I’d part with, if I went off the grid. Great restoration work, Hairy!
