I thought I’d share this just in case anybody was interested and happened to live within driving distance.

thats a beautiful beast. Great buy even if you had to tear it all the way down and rebuild it.

Really is a nice machine, such deals never show up around me. Truthfully, as much as I want a bigger jointer, that one may be a tad too large.

Very cool ,now all you need is a crane to load it and unload it. The price seems like a real deal,but machines taken apart make me nervous whether all the parts are there or how well the machine worked before it was taken apart. Thanks for sharing this,cool tool.

I used a 16” when I was at my second shop. I am of the opinion that it cant be too large a jointer. If you only want to use the first 2” then move the fence. The down side would be knife wear but thats the case on any jointer. Now if its too big for your shop then thats understandable.

Hmm, what would be the cost of a helical cutter for that? Double to triple the price?

Quite an investment. That assumes it would fit.

Less than I would have guessed, but you’d almost certainly have bearing and machine work to make it fit: http://www.grizzly.com/products/15-Shelix-Cutterhead/H7768

That’s a really good price really and worth it, even if you had to change out the bearings, etc

Charles, I’m envious. It is 4 hours from my shop.

If you happen to go over and look at it and decide not to buy it, I would love to hear what you learned about it.

Have your say...
