I think it is used for jointing wood…............. :p

But in all seriousness, looks like a steal if you like refurbishing stuff. I just refurbished a craftsman open end planer and I like it.

I would check parts availability unless you like making parts.
It did also not state the size.

It might be a great deal and I personally think it is overpriced, but, just my rule of thumb. That is 1/3 price or less of new for used(unknown condition) equipment. Maybe 65% or so if it is in :new: condition. The fixer price is less than 10% of new price for my ideas.

Appears to be one of these (from the 1964 Sears Tool Catalog):

The one in the CL ad looks to be in really good condition, either really well kept, or possibly restored in the not to distant past.

Cheers,
Brad

PS: According to the CPI inflation calculator, that machine would cost $1,045 in todays dolars :)

Thanks, gents.

Too scared to pull the trigger on it. Too many unknowns for me. If it stays on there for a bit, maybe I’ll make an offer.

Brad, how do you find this stuff?! Consistently blowing my mind.

Don’t even think about it unless your low on aggravation.Those
Craftsman jointers with a fixed out feed table are the worst.I don’t even know why they made them.

I wouldn’t use one without the porkchop, but that’s just me. You could fabricobble something up.

If there are too many unknowns why don’t you go and run a stick of wood through it and check it out? I’d offer no more that a hundred as it’s missing the guard.

You may not be buying the jointer, but thanks for posting that I saw someone build a double bench grinder setup using that exact stand and now I know what to look for. If that was closer I’d offer $100 so I can put my Baldors on the stand and I’d scrap that jointer.

I definitely wouldn’t use it without a guard of some sort, original, homemade, etc.

AJ was convincing enough to get me to pass on it.
