That is sweeeeeeet. I’m guessing that mobile base is key.

Judging from the pix and seller description, this thing is a steal at $300. If I were anywhere close to Springfield MA, I’d be on my way to look at it.

I don’t know if I should admit that I already have TOOOOO many jointers and only two hands.
1} 6” bench top variable speed Delta POS
2} Antique 6”Delta Rockwell…all cast iron , of course.
3} Antique 4” Delta Rockwell…ditto
4}Ridgid 6” , waiting to be reassembled…cast iron with enclosed steel base
and
5} my most recent , Powermatic 6” 54A long bed
Anyone looking for a jointer ? LOL

Dear god that’s a lot of Jointers.
Might I ask what’s the reasoning?

Hi Tyrone,
the first one I bought due to space limitations and lack of knowledge.
the second one is my first REAL jointer , purchased from an elderly man ,selling out his shop equipment.
I had moved into my new house at that point.
the third was a lucky find that I refurbished.: )
the fourth was from a friend that was moving and needed the money.
and #5 , the Powermatic has been my dream for too many years , and I also bought that from an elderly man moving to Florida.
My plan is to rid myself of all but the latest and the 4 inch model.: )

I was going to say I learned on one just like that in high school but it was even older than this one. I graduated in ‘65 so it was several years old then. They are good old solid machines.

thats a sweet looking jointer, love the cast base
it looks like rockwell/delta 37-220, the best 6 inch machine r/d ever made.
i used to have one too, i replaced it with an even older beaver 3800
