I just got a new old addition to the collection which will be lovingly
restored to original condition. It is a 1922 Thomas Robinson & Sons Type ME
18" Jointer/thicknesser combo. It is 99.9% complete and unbutchered. The
only parts missing are the height adjuster handle (bot right of second
pickie) and the guard. Pictures posted in binaries.pictures.woodworking.
Adjuster handle easy enough to reproduce but the guard has me scratching my
head a bit. The lever and counterweight are there but the guard assembly is
missing. The various parts for the guard are easy enough to manufacture but
the mechanics of the guard system have me a little stumped.It appears that
the fence side pivots of the fence but I have never seen this type of setup.
If anyone happens to have this setup or any pickies from other angles it
would be much appreciated.
Any sugesstions to good sites for old machine restoration would be
We took their criminals so why can't we have their machines as well? How
were we to make them work for their crimes with no machinery .... Most
quality early imported machinery is Aus was English and German origin. Very
little from the states in machinery, mostly hand tools from the states
