Picked up this past summer off c-list from a MWTCA member who in turn picked it up at an estate sale. Best I can tell, I am the third owner, with the jointer simply passed through by second.

From appearances, definitely has been regularly used, but not abused. Seems to have been well cared for. All original and intact, except cutterhead pulley, which the seller replaced, the original having a somewhat wallowed bore. Features foot-actuated caster option, factory stand with chip chute and switch control rod. Newish knives, no nicks but could benefit from sharpening. Runs smoothly.

Will get new bearings, sharpened knives and a thorough cleaning, but will probably stop there. Condition is such I will go for presevation, rather than restoration, with this one.
