Just picked up a used Bridgewood BW6R 6” jointer off craigslist. It required very little clean up and the previous owner took excellent care of it. I measured the tables and found the outfeed dead flat and the infeed has a small section in the center thats 0.0015” low. Fence is also dead flat. Installed a fresh set of blades and ran a few test pieces and it cuts very nice. Overall I’m extremely happy with this purchase. Here are some pictures. Enjoy!

-- - Jei, Rockford IL - When in doubt, spray it with WD-40 and wrap it with duct tape. The details will attend to themselves.

Lew, its a shame they are not manufactured anymore. From my limited experience they seem to be quality machines and not extremely expensive.

At one point, my entire workshop was “Bridgewood Green”. Have upgraded a few things since Wilke Machinery stopped selling it. Really miss the quality for the price of the Bridgewood product.
