Does anyone know about when this was in production? http://lawton.craigslist.org/tls/3461641214.html
My son is going to look at it today, he is setting up a small shop in town to relieve some of the work load out here. I can’t find a thing about it, he said the seller had no idea what he has. Any input would be appreciated.

I am going to venture a guess. That jointer has the look of a nice industrial machine so it may have something to do with the brief ownership of Belsaw by Powermatic (http://vintagemachinery.org/mfgindex/detail.aspx?id=86). I recommend searching this website to see what you can find out.

Pacific rim import c. 1980s. There were table saws too.
