Can someone look at the above CL ad and tell me what you guys think of this? I have searched high and low online and cannot find a delta/milwaukee combo like that with legs like it has. Because of that I can’t really get any info on it.

Does anyone have any experience with these? Or if it would be worth while? I’d mainly be getting it for the jointer part.

Also the bed of the jointer looks sort of strange to me? Does it look ok?

Thanks

The bases are certainly unusual. Those
are accurate little table saws and the
jointers are good basic machines. They’re
from an era when machines were made
pretty well.

Jointer looks fine to me. Just a little surface
rust on it.

Looks like a 37-595 combo but on a home made stand (notice the door hinge mount on the motor!). Consists of a 10” tilting top table saw (#1160, or 34-307 when on a steel stand) and a 6” jointer (#654, or 37-207 when on a steel stand). Also appears to include a #265 moulding cutter head. Serial number dates it to 1946. Here is the catalog entry:

For historical sake and to preserve it after the CL ad is gone, here is the main CL picture:

Thanks guys!

What’s weird is it appears the table is much bigger? It looks like someone fabricated an extension.

How hard would it be to get things like blades for the jointer?

Thanks

That is exactly what it is – an extension table bolted between the fence rails… very common.

About as easy as clicking some buttons and having a credit card handy… there is nothing special about them, and just about any of the 6” and 6-1/8” sets will work (Like this Freud C400 set or the C350 set or this Powertec set etc…)

Nice to have a spare set… but the ones in there now can be sharpened over and over again until they are just too short to be held in place – which is a lot of sharpening cycles.

Cheers,
Brad

Thanks guys!

Do any of you see the draw back of the older craftsman jointers like this one:

or this one: https://tampa.craigslist.org/pnl/tls/d/craftsman-jointer/6236516131.html

The space savings might be a little more helpful than the vintage delta/milwaukee. So I’m keeping the options open. Any idea what a fair price range is?

Thanks!

Craftsman jointer doesn’t hold a candle to the Delta/Milwaukee. Two different animals there, the best deal is the Delta setup. Craftsman jointers were mainly for the weekend woodworker. Both tables adjust on the Delta rig, only one table, the front table adjusts on the Craftsman. Have fun, make some dust.

Looks like the first one comes with a moulding cutter, kinda neat don’t see that too often.
