Looking high and low for handwheels. I think the originals were either 4” or 5”. I picked the jointer up for free and $60 gas money. Put a 1.5 HP Marathon motor in it. Almost finished fixing it up. Thanks

if you find them, please let me know. I got a 37-315 last year and I’ve been looking for a hand wheel ever since.

Make ‘em out of wood. They will work fine, look nice and cost nothing but a little time and effort.

I took the handwheels off an old Wallace 6” jointer that I had and was going to use them. They have 3/8” holes but I need 1/2” holes. I was going to drill them out but didn’t want to chance ruining them. I decided to just leave the machined aluminum knob on there that someone else made. Now I have 2 handwheels for a Wallace jointer. Oh…..........I have the porkchop too if someone needs one.

Well, the jointer is pretty much done. Waiting for a knob (locking handle for the fence slider) and the locking handle. Runs smooth and quiet.
