Not sure but looks to be a KingSeely made for Sears. Could be in the 1950s. Blade should not be a problem if ya look up jointer blades suppliers on Google or Amazon.
Probably a 6” jointer.
What’s the asking price?

It’s a Craftsman from the 1960s I think. The
outfeed table is fixed to save costs. Only the
infeed table is adjustable. Worth maybe $100
but values depend on local supply/demand.

A few people would be interested in the machine
for its original base and motor. It’s restorable
if somebody was interested. I’ve seen those
reflective trim plates called “jeweling” and they
were on other tools from the same era.

That would be a good guess… kind of hard to narrow it down much more based on that picture. Here is a catalog entry from 1959 for their 6” jointer that looks like a pretty close match:

If it does have the fixed outfeed table look for a better jointer. It’s a terrible design all jointers should have a adjustable outfeed. It’s worth it’s weight in scrap if it has a fixed table

All of my jointers have a fixed outfeed table… not really much of a problem. Table length is more important.
