I inherited this from my grandfather's shop. I couldn't find any information on this specific model until I found this website. THANKS! I was able to cross-reference it to Jim Finlaw's Tomlee jointer http://vintagemachinery.org/photoindex/detail.aspx?id=32102. It needs cleaned up, but did run fine when I fired it up. The bearings are in very good shape, with no vibration. I doubt the motor is original, it's got a grounded wire to it. The table is smooth, no rust, has a lot of potential for me.
