I acquired this (for free!!) but there aren’t any tags on the jointer itself. It does have a Westinghouse motor. Does anyone know what brand this is an approx age?

Is that a jointer from a shop smith?

My guess would be an old craftsman. Not sure of the age maybe 1950’s

Yea definitely a Craftsman. Says 1970’s. It will need to be gone over and the cart it’s on needs to be beefed up a bit. The original knives measure 4 1/8” x 5/8” x 1/16” Can’t seem to find exact replacements but looks like an 1/8” thick knife will fit with the original wedge.

Have your say...
