I think I would pass on it. It's obvious it's been stored outdoors and in bad condition without a motor. I believe harbor freight has one for $250.00 that is new with a motor.

i though it looked in kinda crappy shape and if you have to buy a motor you might as well buy a new jointer. i just hadn't heard of this brand before. i been looking on CL for a good deal on a good old one.

Looks like it was a good quality machine. From what I can find it was made in Switzerland or Germany. Too bad it was neglected.

What a great project jointer for your shop.
If you've watched restore threads on here, you've seen some amazing transformations of neglected and rusted tools.

Offer him $75.00 and let him get you for $100.00
Buy a new motor for a couple of hundred.
Put some sweat equity into it.

In the end, you will know this machine inside and out and will always be able to care for and maintain it.

I think it's a great opportunity.

.......and we'd love to watch you do a restore thread

Learning more about tools everyday

Italy, actually. Not only a jointer but a combined jointer/planer and with a mortiser too. Quite a good machine but in that shape and without motor? No, I would pass on it.

I can agree on that if you have a big interest and skills in machine restoring. It's definitely of a quality worth a try. Finding parts could be a challenge though.
If you are just looking for a usable jointer there are better options.

I wished I lived in your neighborhood. For about a 100 bucks more you could get this 20" jointer off ebay in Mansfield. It would need a phase converter though but that's not a big deal.

I better go hook up the trailer and get on over to Ohio.....

As to the first machine, it is not that bad. It has a lot going on, planer, jointer, horizontal mortiser. 3hp single phase motors can be had for chump change, if you know where to look.

Somebody bid on it. http://www.ebay.com/itm/WOOD-Plainer...item4ac2233685

I keep looking for a big old jointer like that but they are always too much money in Texas or they are on the east or west coast more than a 1000 miles from me.
