Good evening gentlemen. I acquired these items quite cheaply. I have no clue if they run. No clue if that motor fits that jointer and no clue where to start the refurbishing process. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

That motor looks 3-phase, I highly doubt it belongs with the jointer.

The motor is three phase 5hp. The there weren’t any other motors laying around so he let me have this one with the deal.

It looks like you paid scrap prices because you bought scrap metal. Is anything complete? What are you trying to do with them? Are you a woodworker?

Sorry, but you’ve posted some very challenging pictures. Can’t tell what you have…

Looks like a Biesemeyer fence and rails, those have value.

Edit: Biesemeyer fence, cant tell if those rails are for it or not.

The pictures are terrible, and way too close to actually tell what’s what.

The Biesemeyer fence is complete with rail.

The jointer is a “lobo CT-200 8” ” it looks EXACTLY like a GEETECH jointer. It is incomplete at this time with no motor. The plan is to see if the 5hp motor will fit. Im thinking of getting a VFD (variable frequency drive) to be able to run the motor off of single phase power.

The bandsaw is in bad shape it is a transpower unit from tawain which currently isn’t set up to run in the garage I have to swap it out to 110V tonight.

the table saw top wasn’t what I thought it was I thought it was the bottom plate to the bandsaw.

I will take some more pictures of it tonight to show what I picked up but for 200 bucks I wasn’t expecting it to be easy.

I imagine that motor most likely went with the table saw. Pretty sure a 3ph/5hp motor didn’t come with a generic Taiwanese jointer. As stated, if you want much advice, you’ll need to post some better pics. And post them right-side-up…

If that motor runs, don’t waste it on a jointer. Sell it and buy a good single phase 1-1.5 hp motor for the jointer. You should still walk away with a little cash in pocket.

I was thinking of using the motor and that table top and building a table saw would it really be that hard to source the parts required for this?

Also for that fence would it be easier to completely replace the table saw top with the one that already has the fence mounted or mount the rails to my table saw? I have a Ridgid 3650 currently

Those do not look like Biesemeyer fence rails although they may work for it. But even so, it appears you are also missing the guide tube.

The rest of the stuff is unidentifiable given the pictures you provided. Post some better pictures, and a clear shot of the motor data plate at least.

Cheers,
Brad

The square guide tube is in the garage already I can post it but it’s just squat tube with a table measurer on it.

The router table on the floor is junk. You can build a better one out of a few pieces of plywood.
