I got the itch after putting my main jointer out of commission, and bought the 3 toe that you see in the back. It’s made by The American Woodworking Company sometime prior to 1925. It’s been in service since then in Lenoir NC at Thomasville furniture factory until they filed for chapter 11 in 3rd quarter 2018.

I purchased it at auction, and it was very sad seeing another big American company go under. While I was having it loaded, I couldn’t help but thing about the families of the 1000+ employees that were laid off right before the holidays.

I plan on making some youtube videos about it which I will post here at the conclusion of this episode..
