That is unique. Can’t say I have ever seen, nor heard of such a combo. I wonder how well the jointer performs???

At first I thought he just had both on one stand until I saw the label on the saw that said it was a combo!

A common hobbiest configuration in the 1950s-1970s. I don’t
recall seeing that particular one before as the colors make
it look like a 1980s-era version. By that time imports were
causing a fall in machine prices that made standalone machines
more attractive to American buyers pricewise.

There are some machines that actually use have the saw and
the jointer sharing iron… true combo machines. The most
interesting in terms of being a serious machine is the
Yates American version.

Oh. Wait. The Cresson-Morris is a really weird version from
pre-OSHA usa.

You know, there are a ton of different designs… interesting
study of designs ingenuity.

More info for the obsessive:

... then there’s the European stuff… whole other can
o’ worms.

I didn’t know Craftsman made a Saw/Jointer combination.

I would think if it was cleaned up and a new table saw fence was added, it could be very usable.

I have been watching all the old episodes of new yankee and norm used this jointer (not attached to the table saw) for a few of the earlier episodes…

I have seen a couple of old small Rockwell combo’s around here at yard sales. Small table, maybe a 7 1/2 inch blade, and a 4 inch jointer, think that they were from the 50’s.

My father has a combo machine that has a saw, jointer, thicknesser, morticer and spindle. It’s a bit small and you have to swap the belt around a bot to use different machines, but they are all there.

I have one of the small Delta Homecraft combinations, an older version with the tilt table, not arbor. They are fairly common and sell anywhere from $50 to $200 depending upon the sellers knowledge. I bought mine so I could use the Delta 3/4 hp motor on a 14 inch bandsaw that is three phase, but have yet to amputate it. If you find one that is complete and cheap they would be handy if you didn’t already own either component. The weak part of that jointer is the soft metal they used on the fence lock mechanism. Go to and look at the photo index by machine type/combination. I think Atlas made one as well.

That jointer looks like it might be related to the ShopSmith jointer which is a common major accessory for us ShopSmith users. I have one.

Can’t imagine that fence is very accurate.
Novel concept
