Jay Fay and Egan make a 16” jointer that looks similar to the porter in design. I have a restored 12” of the pedestal design from the 1890’s and it has been a beast.

The trouble I thing you will run into is that I only see a hand full of these machines in serviceable condition pop up on CL a year. That is in Michigan. Limiting yourself to 16” only makes it even harder. I’d shoot for anything from 12”-24” and see what you find.

It all comes down to how much you are willing to search / wait and pay.
