Handwheels are easy to find. You can buy new ones for cheap or pay slightly more for an original part off of eBay. It will likely be missing a belt guard as the original belt guards were sold as an accessory. Keep in mind that any machine of this age will likely need bearings replaced in the motor and on the cutterhead. If you are unwilling to do that level of work then let this one go. That being said, these are rock solid machines and the cast iron bases intact is relatively rare, so if I were in the market for a jointer I wouldn’t hesitate to drop 250 on this one.
