Yes. I tried and failed to make that clear. Sorry.

I think we're on the same page. I was simply showing it as a modern comparison to the saying you used. When wiki first came out, I spent so much time correcting bad information that I got burned out on it. I'll say it's come a long way and is kind of like webMD, I'd use it for curiosity, but when I start crapping blood, I'm going to the doctor. :-)

Check out the front page of this manual. I think this shows the method that used to be more commonplace. http://www.owwm.com/pubs/1141/880.pdf A few years later these instructions are no longer in the jointer manuals. I've never had the guts to try it.

That would sure take the work out of resetting the jointer blades. This old jointer doesn't have any method to adjust the blades up and down, just two set screws that hold the blade in place. (I suspect newer jointers would have some mechanism for fine adjusting blade height. Guess I'll have to assemble the big one some time and find out.)

You will also need a thin open end wrench to handle those set screws.
Think old time ignition wrenches if you go back that far.

Does the magnetic gauge hold the blades in place as well as hold itself down to the table? The ones I've seen are basically a flat rod or the like and movement of the jointer blades to touch the rod is up to the user.

Take a look at Jointer Pal. It's a brand of magnetic knife holder. I have one and it works fine on my 8" Griz.     mahalo,     jo4hn

There are no markings on the motor I have, and I doubt it's the original (although it could be). The owner manual specifies a 1/3 to 1/2 HP motor with a 4" pulley so that the cutting head is running at 3500 rpm.

Thanks for the info, Dave. One of these days I'll get a belt and try it out. A 4" pulley might be a crucial piece of information.

The same can't be said for the jointer.

Indeed. I can measure the pulley on mine if desired. I also have a PDF of the manual, Puckdropper.

I may request a copy of the manual later, but don't think I'll need it right off. Once I get it running, I may have more questions.
