Where do you live Raymer I’ll find you a jointer.

Thanks man, but I picked one up tonight. It isn’t exactly what I was looking for, but I love older American made machines. This is a Delta-Rockwell-Milwaukee Crecent 37-301, 8” jointer.

The guy ran some tests pieces, which looked good except for the piece it missed due to a chip in the blades. He did throw in an extra set of Freud knives though.

I am going to restore this machine back to as original as I can. As far as I can tell it is only missing the original power switch box and a few round head screws and thumbscrews for the rear and front panel. I also noticed the belt was flapping a bit and probably need to find a V Link belt?

I know it’s not a new Grizzly or Powermatic, but I got it for $500, which I am happy with. I don’t think I can go too wrong for that much invested in it honestly for an 8” jointer. First thing is to get rid of that ugly green and repaint it the Delta Gray.
