It is only a jointer ......

A jointer/planer is a combination machine which will thickness plane as well as joint. This machine will only joint and is called a jointer on the name plate!

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Read again. It says "joint or plane" several times on said plate.

You used a ( / ) between the words jointer and planer which implies a different machine. Yes, a jointer will "plane" but it's not a "planer" which is a commonly used term for a thickness planer. I own a jointer, a thickness planer and a jointer/planer.

A jointer/planer or planer/jointer is one of these:

You are selling a jointer:

The plate describes "jointing" which is the process of squaring and edge to the face and "planing" which is the process of flattening the face. These terms are used as verbs, not nouns, the name of a machine.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

I'll take it. Please drop it off at my home. I'll pay you on delivery.

Regarding the term "jointer/planer", I have heard it used to describe what we call a jointer, usually by older people. I consider the term "jointer/planer" to be archaic when used to describe the tool shown above.

The current, modern use of the terminology defines three different tools:

* Jointer - The tool pictured above. It has a fence, which is used to make a right angle for a jointed edge. It can also make one side of a board flat, but not necessarily parallel to the other side. This is the reason for the archaic term "jointer/planer."

* Planer - A tool that flattens the top surface of a board, parallel to the bottom surface of the board. I use a DeWalt DW735 planer.

* Jointer/Planer - A combination tool that can be used as a jointer or a planer (as described in the two definitions above). You configure the tool for whichever use you need. Some people report that they are a compromise, not quite as good as their standalone counterparts. Sometimes they are frustrated with the time it takes to convert from one use to the other and back. They may be an option for people with limited space or resources.

Good grief, that's how I saw it labeled all over the internet, didn't know it was going to be a trigger...

Ever heard of Grzzly?

Here's a link to their jointers:
https://www.grizzly.com/jointers


here's a link to their planers:
https://www.grizzly.com/planers


Here's their planer/jointer and notice the ( / ) in the title:

https://www.grizzly.com/products/Gri...Series/G0634XP


Call it what ever you want, but the industry is specific about terms used to describe their products and this is one. The Google folks are probably not woodworkers, so don't have a clue. The folks who manufacture the machines know what they are called and well as some of the woodworkers here ... just sayin'.
You would think that the folks at Fine Woodworking magazine would know what it is and that's why I posted this link:

What to Look for in a Jointer/Planer Combo Machine - YouTube
Understood, thanks. And to be clear about how and where I searched. When looking up the model number to date this machine it was listed as a jointer/planer nearly everywhere that I looked that had information in regards to that model number. So, I wasn't looking at some random sites/postings, it seems to me that there is a misconception with a lot of the community itself. I will say that I was never able to put an accurate age on this machine.

I was only kidding, of course, because @mbsfield does not know my address to deliver it. I thought he or she might get the hint. I can't believe that mbsfield STILL hasn't said WHERE this heavy tool is. Nobody is going to buy it and have it shipped to them. The cost of shipping would double the cost of the tool. Duh!

Heavy tools like those almost always sell in their local markets. It costs too much to crate and ship them, and how do you deal with damage on arrival? Return the unsatisfactory tool? Eek!

It looks like a beautiful, wonderful jointer, but anyone serious about buying it would want to see it in person to assess its condition. Otherwise, it is a pig in a poke.

Related, but way off topic:
I learned something new yesterday. The expressions, "pig in a poke" and "let the cat out of the bag" may be related. Who knew?

Shouldn't be such a big deal...

Pretty easy to see from the pics what it is, might have been a big issue if the OP called it a planer only, or a table saw, etc.

I figured you were joking , that's why I didn't address. Tbh, freight shipping isn't that bad (location dependant, of course), it's $100-$200 for most likely. Naturally, that would freight would be for the collector or that guy/girl looking for this particular item. The machine in question is in the North Alabama realm for those that are interested. As far as damage, shipping would be insured to cover both ends. I've tried selling in town for awhile, now, but no one has shown any interest. I don't have a need for it, although, I do have a need for a power hammer. Naturally, I'm a blacksmith not a woodworker by trade.

I bought this particular piece of machinery from a woman who's father had recently died, this was his machine, and I was trying to give her a helping hand. I've had it for 3 years and used it twice, like I said, I'm not a woodworker and I can only use so man cabinets. At this point it's just costing me money in my storage unit, had to store since I'm in between moves, and my priority is on my metal working tools. Great piece of machinery, I just need to move it to someone that really has a need for it.
