I am looking for an older jointer some where around North florida south Georgia and even Southern Alabama

I dont mind a restoration project as long as the bed is 6” let me know what you have or if you have any leads on where I can find one. I like the older rockwells and similar designs.

for reference my cabinet saw is a 1953 all original unisaw except the fence.

Thanks

what have you tried so far ??
I see one on C/L right there in your city.
I had one just like it for 20 years and it served me quite well.

Aside from Craigslist, ebay is a good place to
look. Auction sites like IRS auctions sell off
equipment all over the country but tend to be
mostly larger machines.

http://owwm.org has a buy/sell board.
You have to join the site to view it.
