Praki….. I am in Bakersfield unfortunately I will not be able to deliver.
I am upgrading to an 8". I have purchased an old Crescent 8" that is a big change. The new, well new to me, jointer is a 2hp has 4 knife cutter head and is SOLID cast. When I looked at it I jointed a 2×4 that was close by and took off close to 1/4" and the jointer didnt even know it was being used. It didnt bog one bit and produced a super clean surface, square and no tear out even through a knot. Now I just need to figure out how to move the beast. It weighs in the neighborhood if 1200#.
Don….you are right about that. I am picking it up in the AM. I cant wait to get it here, I have a friend who has a truck mounted crane on a service truck and he is going to lift it and put it in my truck. Then he will help unload as well. If I ever move the movers are gonna hate me….....lol
bye the buy where are you finding all this arn at man
Mostly on CL. I did come across a unisaw that I am restoring now by chance. I bought the delta 14" bandsaw from a CL listing and saw the uni sitting in a pile to be sent to the scrappers. I asked about it and it was given to me. Kinda cool
Todd…I had been looking to upgrade for some time. I got lucky with this one. The man I bought this from bought it from his neighbor many moons ago. His neighbor purchased a 12" Northfield, the thing looks like an aircraft carrier!!
I was lucky this morning and got to meet a fellow LJ, 3fingerpat. He made the 4hr drive north from San Diego and bought the jointer. I want to say that he is a great guy and I hope the jointer works well for him.
Just to set the record straight he does have all his fingers. But I will let him explain the nickname.
