Thanks everyone for the advice, I ended up buying it a week ago and spent part of the weekend (not including the packer game) cleaning it up, oiling the moving parts, and repacking the cutter head bearings. It still has some work to do, but I ran some boards through it and what a machine! I’ve been using an old Rockwell/Delta 4” model with a 24” bed for a few years and this thing just blows it out of the water.

I started a post on my blog that I’ll be updating with photos and videos of the restore process if anybody is interested. Check it out at http://davidwahl.org/2012/11/new-to-me-powermatic-60-8-inch-jointer/
