BC, if we lived closer we could go in on it! Then buy a power feeder and Bam were in the game. This looks like a real beauty! I was once at a fellow Lumberjocks shop and he had a 24 inch jointer with power rollers (feeders) and thought to myself man was a sweet machine! I through 300 Bd Ft of Blue Oak in no time then he str8 edged it all on a sliding table saw for me. I then went home to my humble shop :<(

Have a great New Yrs Buddy!! Let me know when you need help moving this LOL

Pressing down on the board to be joined keeps it from flattening out :X

I was about to start a forum entry on my 12in Silver manufacturing jointer I just picked up but this blows me out of the water. I just jumped into the old iron / big machine group. I think I’m in over my head and budget!!! This 24in machine is amazing!

BC, that would look nice in your shop. Remember to invite over a buddy to help you lift it. Should take but two of you and a couple minutes to move it. : )

Wow Wilson! If you owned this and the wife sent you to the dog house, you could throw a mattress on it and sleep on it! After unplugging it for safety reasons of course.

What a beautiful looking machine. They have a 16” yates at the Door and window shop where I pick up scrap for the toy operation at the Mason Dixon Woodworkers.

They don’t even hold the board down. The wood is so heavy he just pushes it with one hand. They have a blade that takes carbide inserts 16” long. It does a great job in bringing their wood to flat.

I’ve got a buddy that refuses to use his 12” jointer because it’s too imposing to him
