Does anyone have any details on David Marks' 12" jointer. I caught a portion
of the recent episode which profiled his shop but was unable to identify the
maker of that jointer. Just curious.
I can't ID a brand but here is a link to the episode:
It is a 16" jointer, not 12" and it says it was aquired used. That is his
actual shop, not a set.
More than likely it's a Yates, Yates-American, Oliver, Faye
& Egan, L. Powers or just about most any other near turn of
the century three-toed jointer.

Funny you mentioned that, I spent a good portion of the afternoon there and
was really impressed by some of the old machines still in use today. I even
found one of my old jointers profiled on there which I thought was cool.
Nothing stellar but it is a 1967 6" Craftsman. I bought the joiner, a
bandsaw and a shaper from a fellow some years ago. He bought all three
pieces brand new from Craftsman in 1967, same year I came kicking into the
world! I gave him $250 for the lot and still use the bandsaw now and then.
The shaper and jointer just kind of take up space. Id get rid of them but I
have a soft heart I guess and just cant part with them. I got a few original
manuals and paperwork with them too. Neat stuff I thought.
I have a 60's vintage Craftsman jointer that worked great, except it
sounded rough (uneven) The other day, I put a link belt on it. You
would not believe the difference! It is now truley a wonderful
