AKA….TOOL GLOAT !!! Rockwell/Delta 37-315 8” jointer
I finally was fast enough on a Craigslist ad to get a awesome deal. The tool gods were kind to me today. I have been wanting to upgrade to an 8” jointer for awhile. The poster of the ad responded back to me within an hour and I was off and running. From the pics he had on the ad I knew it would not last for long. Even better it was only 10 minutes away. 2 minutes after arrival I was rolling it up into the trailer. Yes, the mobile stand was even included : ) . He had purchased it in California 15 years ago from a commercial renovating company that bought it new to do one job and then it sat with that company collecting dust. The gentleman I bought it from rarely used it, the reason he let it go, so he estimates there may be only 10 to 20 hrs of use on this fine piece of old iron. The knives have only been ground once. Gotta just love it!
Oh, and the BEST part….runs like a dream…for the awesome bargain of…...$100 !!!!!
Heavy sigh…I think I’ll play the lotto today too….or have I used up all my luck for the next ten years?
