Comments:
I bought this jointer from a gentleman in Boonsboro, VA on 30 September 2017. It has been converted from direct to belt drive and has a few other owner-made repairs. I was told that it saw service in a high school woodshop for some years.
It runs well but I have questions about the oil cups and how best to keep her bearings in good shape.
