So last weekend I fried the motor on my benchtop jointer. I've been looking around to see whats out there. Now mind you I am not a cabinet maker nor do I build large furniture or anything like that. I do have lots of rough cut lumber that needs a straight edge though.
I see several of the older Craftsman jointers listed in auctions and sales from time to time. I assume that are the heavy cast steel and all but do they work well enough to fix up and use today. Here is an image of one I see in an aution for tomorrow. I have no information on it at all.
