This is an 8" Rockwell jointer I picked up at auction. It was mostly complete missing only the fence tilt lever (kindly provided by Keith Bohn aka Unisaw A100). It had a 1 1/2 hp 3ph motor when I purchased it now replaced with a TEFC 2hp 1ph. It had been left in the weather for a short while before I purchased it so it had a nice "patina". I completely disassembled it and bead blasted all of the rust off. Lubricated the ways and all other moving parts. Applied gun blue to all of the black parts. It now has a nice new paint job. Eveyrthing is working very smoothly now. Well worth the effort.
