Manufacturing Info

I've seen that several folks on this forum can throw out tons of info about a tool. Is there a good website somewhere that matches manufacturing numbers? I'm trying to find out who actually builds my jointer (to buy accessories). Thanks.

If you have an older tool, you can look it up on www.owwm.com or www.datamp.org. Both site are very good sorces of info on older shop tools.

Thanks for the responses.
I knew I should have just put the make and picture in .
This one's new (works good), but knowing where to find all that info might be helpful down the road for other tools. I was just wondering if there is a specific website out there that links the numbers to the info. Thanks again.

Probably the easiest way to find out would be to call Sears customer support. You can't go by the first three numbers anymore it seems. I'm guessing it's a Steel City, but thats only a guess. As you know alot of tools are made overseas nowdays and alot of them look alike.

What I have found is a lot of tools made here and over seas look alike because they were made in the same plant. When I was looking for a floor model drill press, I looked at the one at Sears. It was over $300.00 at that time. I found one in Houston Texas at a tool warehouse for $120.00. Same Drill press with the exseption of the name plate and mine had a metal belt housing. Sears is plastic, and even the owners manuals are the same with the exseption of the name printed on it, word for word. When I first found www.owwm.com on the web, I couldn't beleave how many differant brand names came out of the same plant.

I get a little tickled when some one wants to know what brand of tool is better, When most tools came out of the same plant.
