Cast iron can also be filed and scraped by hand. It is really
not very hard metal.

While I can relate to the desire to discard an old machine
that has a defect, I’ve also found that some defects
are correctible if you care to.

A smaller jointer can also be taken to a machine
shop and milled flat without taking the tables off
on a mill with a “modest” work envelope 48”-60”

Check out this new 12” jointer being auctioned right now:

It’s going to be a good deal for somebody. Freight can
be a dealbreaker of course. Such machinery acquisition deals
are not that scarce if you keep your eyes open.
