A friend has this machine. It is still in a corner, buried under many things, so no good pictures yet. Any ideas about it, how old, ect? Thanks.

Ive never heard of such a beast exist.
I almost bought a direct drive porter with ball bearings. But the infeed table was badly worn it had a wonderful low buzz when it ran. The head would spin for 13 minutes after it was turned off.
See if you can get more pics I have a soft spot for jointers :)

Amazing how quick the replies come in. So much knowledge here. I had looked at OWWM, but didn’t find it. The friend passed last fall, and this machine will be for sale. I don’t have the real estate in my shop to give it a home. I would hate to see it scrapped.
