Unfortunately I don't know much about the machine. I purchased it from a gentleman in Newhall, California (a neighborhood in the City of Santa Clarita). He had bought it from another down in Orange Count, California. It re-appeared on Craigslist a few times, starting $225 and slowly dropping. The gents on this site suggested offering $150 with nothing to loose, so I did and the seller took it. Now it's mine. It was in working condition when I bought it but I decided to do a complete tear-down anyway including new knives, bearings on the cutterhead, and paint. The motor was relatively new (Dayton single-cap 3/4hp motor) so I wiped the outside of it with a rag and left it alone.
The only piece missing that I know of is a knob on the fence itself for adjusting - no biggie, though.
The Jointer should be the old non-metallic "Pea Green" color. It came in Gray with Pea Green underneath. However, Pea Green is not my favorite so I layed on the "Charcoal Gray" from Rustoleum. The red bits are "Cherry Red" from Krylon.
How it arrived home. Notice the Pea Green peaking through.

Cleaned and piled...should I part it out?

Finished and it looks great next to my '61 Unisaw - it's a keeper!
