I've just got this nice old jointer and I would like to put it to good use.The guard is broken and I wonder if anyone knows where to find one?
The cutter head turns on ballberings and has a 7.5HP motor with three belts.
I didn't had much time to get into it yet,so I don't know it's age but it,s probably a latter model since the cutter head is turning in ballbearings.
What was it's color originaly?
I would be greatfull for any help.
