Hey, you ever get kicked out, it will make a dandy bed, kinda firm for my liking, but throw one of those padded things on it, and yer good to go.

2300 pounds, WOW. Did you spring a nut moving it?

Looks like it’s in excellent condition.

My motto is: If you’re gonna have something, have a big one….You have exceeded my expectations greatly…..!!

That sucker looks like the same size that David Marks used in his shop on “Wood Works”......!! Nice….!!

That Newman will still be going when the Grizzly has turned to dust. Where did you find it, School, government, other?

You need to power it with a steam engine or vintage hit and miss engine of similar vintage for even greater visual impact!

I like too. So much character. I watched the video two things that bothered me . Starting with a vfd and the orange push blocks.
I wonder what the head diameter is? And is it stamped with the hook angle on the head.
Just for my own notes.
I admit I have a jointer obsession
