    So tempting!

    Probably should finish this shop first though.

    That makes me the first kid on my block to have a 12 inch jointer.

    Congratulations. That should make a fine machine. Good luck with the process.

    Way to go George, giving a new home to poor old neglected beast! I know that old jointer will love you for it!

    Well I have gotten a new motor,belts, fabricated a mobile base and a few other odds and ends.
    I have started it up and it runs quite smoothly but you know you are not working with a six inch machine anymore.
    I am taking off the tables to get ground since they are a bit cupped.
    While I am at it I am investigating putting on a Shelix head on it.
    The white is a piece 1/2 UHMW for a new blade guard.

    The old motor was so heavy I had to take it apart to load it on the truck to dispose of it.
    While I was pulling it apart I noticed it was packed with old saw dust and who knows how old that stuff was.
