I knew I wasn’t the only one! LOL! I sold my late 60s or early 70s Powermatic 20 inch planer and model 60 8 inch jointer and set up a Delta 15 inch (a 450 pound machine so you KNOW it was made back in the day!) and the 12 inch jointer. Kind of a trade off to make room for the big jointer.

We will be building a new shop this summer and I’ll have some room again. I have my eye on a 36 Cressent bandsaw myself. Do I NEED it, well, no. Will I buy it anyway? Yep, as soon as I’m under roof!

I use a small power feeder on the jointer and, while the Grizzly I have works just fine, I’d love to find an old USA made replacement. Any ideas? Same with the drill press. I have a new Porter Cable from Lowe’s that actually does a very good job bt I’d love to have the 60’s era Delta from which it’s cloned.
