Also, it has a replacement motor on it, but I have the original one – which also weighs a ton.

Is it worth having the original one repaired just because it’s the original one?

This is a 6” 3-blade jointer with a 45” bed. Nothing exotic, but it does look cool. The guy I bought it from actually removed a table top from it – it was being used as a steam punk-looking table!

For the most part it’s good to add more pressure to the outfeed side after a fair amount of the Board has passed the cutter head. Often I’m just pulling wood across the head with a single motion I have two different pusher or pullers with a single handle. I keep both hands on.
Davis and Wells made some good machines very well built. I have D&W tablesaw love it.

Thanks Aj.

Yeah, this thing is a serious piece of work – as evidenced by it being around 70+ years.

I feared that the relatively short bed might be an issue, but I was able to run a 5-1/2’ board through no problem.

Have your say...
