Well somebody is cleaning out an old pattern shop from the looks of that.

Why can’t sellers just take at least 10 minutes to try and make it look like something that someone just must come and buy? Sure the brand names help, but people are looking at the images….

If you want a 20 inch jointer the appearance f that one won’t turn you off.

Yeah, exactly dhazelton. If you’re selling a bulldozer, there’s no point in getting it detailed.

L. Power and Co. Jointer made sometime around 1910-1920, and weighs in at about 1400 lbs or more! They do clean up nice, and with a 5HP motor, can easily be run on a VFD:

I think it’s probably too small for my needs. Not quite enough room to land a plane. :-)

Would be sweet if I had a big enough shop and time to do a decent restoration.

I think I’ll hold out for a 24” model.

Ya that and the 36” BS I posted for sale a few days ago, the shop would be a tilting if on the same side!!! I will pass on it, the fence is a bit short.
Not too many 20 inch wide boards out there unless a glue up.

The word small has a new meaning having seen that one! Nice but no room for that in the shop at this time. LOL
