Nice score dude! Half my shop ( Delta Unisaw table saw, Powermatic drill press, 1 HP Steel City dust collector,Jet 14” enclosed stand band saw, Kreg prescesion fence, Veritas shelf pin drilling jig) is made up of awesome Craigslist scores! That is a great jointer solid as a rock. If you paid a ridiculous amount for it you might want to chuck the knifed head and buy a helical cutter head. Grizzly sells three different kinds, and they retrofit onto all their jointers. They vary in price, but if you got the jointer for a song then you might want to think about it. Index-able spiral or helical cutter heads are the shit! No knife sharpening or aligning EVER….and glass smooth finishes, and the best handling of figured woods…period. You get a nick or they just get dull, you rotate the little square cutter head to a clean side! That top will clean up nice. I would take the fence off and maybe work them both with some wet/dry automotive paper with your ROS and a little lube. Work your way up through the really high grits and that thing will look like a polished mirror!
