I picked this up from a Craigslist ad recently for $200. SCORE!! I wanted the CSX with 1 hp motor, but this one will do. And with this being about half the going price for a newer CSX, I can put that money towards some chisels or a shoulder plane. Looks like it’s seen some action, I had to clean a bunch of surface rust from the fence and tables. A thorough cleaning did wonders, and now I need to pull the knives and get them sharpened. Everything seems to work fine, even the bearings are in good shape. The only snag is that the safety guard was missing. I downloaded the manual and I think I’ll get the parts on order for that. I guess it was a bargain for a reason. No biggie, a jointer is a pretty simple machine so it’s something I can work on.
Thanks for reading, and have a great day.
