I have these two jointers in my storage room. Unfortunately, I know nothing about them, particularly whether someone can use them or whether they should be tossed. Can anyone give me any information on them?
The top one with the rusty bed is a Sears box-bed jointer from the 1970s. My first jointer was one of those. Probably a 113.3068 or 113.3069. The stock number will be on the tag.
The lower one is a Sprunger Brothers with an aluminum cutterhead. Likely older than the Sears jointer.
Given some elbow grease, new bearings, new knives, they should make serviceable jointers. I suspect that the Sprunger will need a stand and maybe a motor and switch.
No motor or stand is pictured for the Sears.
I'll play around with the Craftsman, missing parts or not, I have enough spare pieces sitting around that I could do something with it. If your tossing it soon, shoot me a pm. I'm free anytime to come pick it up.
