I thought I would post a review of a “vintage” tool I refurbished a few months back. I currently have a small shop, and was looking at bechtop jointers.
Happened to mention my search at the office, and one of the guys indicated he had an old jointer that he was no longer using.
After $50.00, and his help to lift it into my truck, I was off on a re-furb project.
As the price of new tools continues to rise, along with the cost of fuel and food, I think there is more opportunity to do some bargain hunting. After a few weekends, I ended up with a nice looking jointer.
—New knives $6.00 w/shipping included from E-Bay
—Primer and Paint $12.00
I’ll most likely upgrade to a larger unit when my shop is built (in a few years) and I move from the basement, but until then It’s enjoyable to work on a piece of cast iron US history.
