Topic tags/keywords: jointer phoenix los angeles for sale

I am looking to buy a used jointer. Anywhere between southeast Arizona and Los Angeles. I am traveling to Ontario, CA soon and would be willing to take a side trip if anybody has a line on a good used jointer. I live in the middle of nowhere AZ, so there is never anything used for sale near me.

Thanks for any help.

I talked to a guy who has a Rockwell 6” on a wood stand with motor
and switch. Sounded like it was in working condition. From his
description on the phone it may be a Rockwell/Beaver style with the
36” tables. He was asking $75 for it. Not a great style of jointer
for making beds and table tops but compact and a lot of iron in it.

It is in Whittier. Let me know if you want his number.

6” jointers under $100 are not uncommon in the L.A. area. There
were several machinery manufacturers that built them here. A guy
in Mission Viejo has a Boice Crain 6” he wants $100 for.

The Boice Crain looks like it has 1/2” thick steel tables welded to a frame
instead of the more common cast iron tables. I’ve seen the welded
tables on other jointers made in California, as the Boice Crane probably
was. Parts will be hard to find, but the tool looks complete and aside
from bearings and knives (which are generic and easy to get) parts
probably will never be an issue for you.

Thanks, for the help. I am back from my trip and picked up a Jet 6” with mobile base for $330 in Phoenix.
