I am just getting into doing some woodworking and my grandfather said he had an old jointer that he bought years ago from a woodshop that closed down. He told me that it needed a few things and he had never had the time to get it up and running again, but he wanted to give it to me. As a newbie woodworker on a budget, I was ecstatic. So I brought it home and started looking at it to see what all needed done to it.
Mostly everything looks in pretty good shape, but it needs new blades (blades are missing), a new cutterhead pulley (old one is cracked), and just a little bit of cleaning up. The problem is that I haven’t been able to find replacement parts for it anywhere. So, given the wealth of knowledge I’ve already found on LumberJocks, I thought maybe someone here can help me out.
Basically, I am wondering if anyone knows where I could find replacement parts for it, or am I better off to just sell it and try to find a used one elsewhere that is within my budget and is currently operational. I’ve googled the name and serial number and found nothing in the way of parts. I did find a site that said that model was built in 1944, but that’s it.
