Looks like a nice stout little jointer. The Knifes don t look right to me.Maybe its the angle of the picture. I just dig the oversized cutting circles old jointers have. Even small ones.
Back to the Knifes the bevel angle looks wrong or they are too thick. Be careful with that part could be a booby trap.
Nice looking little machine.

I plan digging into the knife isses a little more on this. I can take a more direct picture of the knives. The pictures were from the original craigslist post.

I spent the most part of last night working on the tops and I am amazed at how much they shined right up. Is it new? No but it is starting to take shape. I will post some more pictures of the cleaned tops and of the knives. Maybe some imput on a perfered wax for the top and some imput on the knives.

-- I would give you two thumbs up, but one and a half will have to do!!
