Last March I bought a F. and J. 16 inch jointer. I listed some pictures of it last March. Well its been a busy year and I am just now getting back to redoing it. It came out with babbit brgs. A machinist friend of mine (he is the one with the horizonal boring mill large enough to handle the job) has offered to help me retrofit it with ball brgs. So with that offer how could I not accept. That will make a good old machine a great old machine. Cant wait!!!!
