Did you run some test pieces first before you tore it down? That is not much rust. That will clean up great. Then mask of the JET logo and paint that sucker Jet white to match. The photos look to me like it has had almost no use, it has just sat around in someones way.

No. I could tell by eye the tables were not coplaner. Multiple chips out of the blades. Decided to just go through it. So after several productive searches, I ordered a straight edge from Garrett Wade. Funny story. The straight edge was on sale, $24.95 for 38”. Added to the cart online, lost connection. Logged back in, went to cart to checkout, now it’s $29.95. Kind of torqued me off. Reloaded the page several times and the original page ALSO said $29.95. So I just went ahead and placed the order. But it was still bugging me. So I went back to the original page about 30 minutes later and the darn thing was $24.95 again! That was Friday night. I emailed CS but no reply. Sunday, I called CS and they changed the shopping cart price to reflect the sale. It showed up today. Looks good. I guess. LOL. Looks like a heavy piece of straight aluminum.

Anybody noticed the snow on the temporary floor? Just a little cold in my shop. One of the reasons for the jointer in the first place. The doors are rotten and I will be building new carriage doors, based on the recent FWW article.

What are you planing on doing with the old blades? If you are not going to use them, I would like to offer to buy them as I need some A-2 steel for a project.

When you get this puppy up and running, you will have a great, well equipped shop. Best wishes, Rand
