WTB - Wide(ish) jointer
« on: June 15, 2020, 04:24:38 PM »
I have read, understand, and agree to the terms of posting an ad on the Forestry Forum.

I'm starting to seriously look at buying a wider jointer (currently have an 8") and thought I'd throw this out there to see what was available on the used market.

A 16" would be real nice but space and money are both considerations so a 12" might be more practical.

Would like to stick to single phase. I don't have three phase available and while a converter wouldn't be the end of the world I'd prefer not messing with it.

Same goes for units that need to be rebuilt or have other work done. I realize that would get me a better deal but right now I don't have enough hours in the day to take on another project.

Thanks,

Alan

 I've a 12" American [brand name] jointer I've rebuilt. Everything that moves has been replaced with new U.S. made parts except the  magnetic switch which is chinese and the laminated knives maybe german. New parts include 3 hp single phase motor, belts, sheaves, bearings etc. Less than 1 hour on everything. Ok, maybe not the knives.

I'm asking $2500 o.b.o. It's one of the 3 legged patterns. Seems like the bed length is 93" and round cutter head with conventional knives.

I built the thing up over a very long period, I was planning on replacing my 8" with it but figured out I have really no need for the extra width.

I've never listed it on this forum under for sale as I don't have any pics of it. It's currently surrounded by shop clutter and I just keep putting off clean up  needed for a decent pic. Hey, I'm a procrastinator, what can I say?  

Before the gasket blows I will see that 5% goes to the board if you ended up buying it.

Thanks for posting. I'm chewing on it. Price doesn't seem bad. Biggest obstacle is the drive from Iowa to Arkansas. Time is short and I prefer keeping my old truck closer to home. A bit much for the Corolla and trailer to haul. :)

I can relate to the old truck and distance issues.
