Topic tags/keywords: question

You guys are my last hope as I haven’t been able to find anything on this brand. The seller knows zero about it or jointers in general. All i have to go off of is. This picture and what looks like the name “Artisan” on the front with a logo. I’ve seen a few artisan jointers but non that match this one, its typeface, or logo. I also can make out “made in Taiwan” on the front. I really need to know if i can find parts (blades) for this thing. I should mention i don’t know much about jointers either. Thanks!

I can only caution you to not depend on the information that is on the cabinet below. It may or may not have anything to do with the jointer itself. Years ago I was trying to buy a band saw from someone who nothing about it and gave me the model number off the cabinet. Consequently, I couldn’t find any information about the band saw. Insist on getting additional pictures, names, numbers, etc. from the machine itself. Or, go see it if you can.

Knives(blades) should be very easy to find. Here is one source for them, https://www.holbren.com/high-speed-steel-jointer-planer-knife-sets/

Looks like a Delta clone Knives and bearings will be the only parts you should need. Those are readily available after market
Looking at the picture closer it looks like a direct copy of the 37-220

Thanks all. It’s like an hour away so i think i’ll go take a look at it given what you’ve all had to say. If knives and bearings are available thats what i was most concerned about. Appreciate all your help.

Pre Grizzly Taiwan was already busy copying American made tools. On 6” jointers both Delta, and Powermatic were cloned, and some of the early machines are as golden as the tools they were copied from. Names would be all over the place, and tracking heritage on some of the off brands is a hard search. Basically either the casting failed, or they didn’t, so if it’s still whole, still square, the motor runs, and the blades freely spin it can be cleaned up, and used to joint wood.

I always bring a chunk of something hard to run across them. Seller says no trial then the price is then set at 10 American dollars, because I can get that in scrap. If it runs, and you aren’t jumping away from it saying what is that NOISE, I’ll go as high as 100 on one looking like that picture, pristine, running and doing it well, you could spend 250 to 400 and still be way under the cost of new. Jointers are very easy tools, not much too them, not much to fix to completely redo them.
