I’m just a rookie, so my 8” jointer is plenty big enough for me! Speaking from a lack of knowledge on this, just when or what size should have a power feeder? I am imagining the effort it takes to use a 12” or larger jointer…

Hey Mike
Yea an advanced rookie for sure .I’m still working up on rookie. I have a 12” jointer and as long as I keep the table clean and waxed it’s not hard to use. I would imagine a large production shop that does a lot of face jointing might want a power feeder.

Maybe a model “A” engine :))

Funny, when I was a kid in Southern Indiana we had an old Oliver tractor. One had to put a charcoal grill under the oil pan in the winter to get it fired up. Once running it would run on kerosene, deisel fuel, waste oil, or whatever one could find. Wonder if this is the same Oliver that made that jointer?

How would you budge it… let alone move it… plus getting it on / off a truck!

It would cost more to just MOVE it!!

Plus, I think it’s a tad too long for my garage… LOL

That is one awesome jointer!

You guys reminded me. In my dad’s old furniture shop, the new guy in the carpentry area would get jointer duty. They start their first day with a scrawny or chunky physique. After a 6 months, they were chiseled from stone.

I remember those days. No one wore dust masks, there wasn’t a dust collector, no one wore eye protection, and we’d have a finger altering accident every year.

That Jointer reminds me of those days except there isn’t a 2 foot tall pile of shavings in back of it.

-- Thanks for all the lessons!

LJers, Does this one feed left to right? The fence and pork chop seem to make it so; cause my little 6” Craftsman feeds right to left w/fence on back and pork chop reversed to this picture. I’d just like to upgrade to an 8” single phase w/an adjustable outfeed and spiral helex rooler.
