Project Information

Well as I cant figure out how to link the pictures to my Blog, right now but this is an update. Not sure that it should go under projects right now as it is a work in progress… however if you would like to follow the progress of this I will be updating my blog later this afternoon. Thanks for looking.

To link photos in your blog you need to host them on a picture hosting site such as flickr or photobucket. You then link to them using the insert image button at the top of the box where you are editing your text. I belive there are a few good posts on how to do this. Try http://lumberjocks.com/help/writing/embedding-pictures



Oh and it looks like you have a nice little jointer.

Nice looking jointer. It has either been well preserved or well restored (or both).

This jointer looks a lot like a ShopSmith jointer. The fence is virtually identical to the ShopSmith fence. I wonder if there was any connection between King-Seeley and ShopSmith. As an FYI - King-Seeley sold woodworking products through Sears from '47 to '64.

Nice jointer. There is one of these for sale near me and I am probably going to purchase it and restore it. I like your signature. I have a Tee-Shirt that says "He who dies with the most TOOLS wins."

Good looking jointer, I like solid cast iron, but you look kinda young to be playing with serious woodworking machines. Just sayin!

richgreer- thanks for the info I was on owwm.com the other day and found some good info, it seems that sometime in the late 50's they took the King-Steely mark off the name plate and replaced it with a slogan. So that being said it leads me to believe that mine is between 47-59. Either way I am pretty happy with the good deal.

Gotwood1962- but you look kinda young to be playing with serious woodworking machines. Is that why people ask me what I want to be when I grow up??
