Looking for some advice on this one. I hear they are real work horses. Obviously I'd restore it, but is the price in line? It looks pretty rough and I haven't seen it in person. If it's complete and in good shape is it worth it?? Considering a resto, maybe a conversion to belt drive?? etc…
The listing reads;
have an all original Oliver 144-BD 8" Jointer. 1950's era VERY heavy duty. Original SINGLE PHASE, 1 HP, direct drive motor. Jointer starts up great and runs very smooth with hardly any vibration. Incredible smooth running machine compared to most of the newer units costing thousands more. It has been stored inside for a few years so the blades will need sharpened or replaced. Paint is staring to flake off but obviously that does not affect operation. Great candidate for restoration of perfectly usable as is. Fence is not shown in pictures since I had it removed from the machine but the original fence is included and also in good condition. Asking $750 OBO.
