FS: 8" Jointer - SF Bay Area

I am in the process of finishing the restoration of an 8" American brand jointer. It was built 1925 - 1930. It was originally a Babbitt bearing machine that was converted to ball bearing. It is a wedge bed style jointer with tables that slide on ways in order to provide easy access to the cutting head. It is a three legged machine. Here are the stats:
Overall length: 7 feet
Cutting Head: 8" with three wedge held blades
In feed table: 13" x 47"
Out feed table: 16" x 33" including a 3" rabbet
Motor: 1 1/2 horsepower 110/220 motor
Fence: 4 3/4" x 56"
Out feed adjustment wheel: 8" diameter
In feed adjustment wheel: rear [opposite the operator] mounted 16" diameter
Weight: 1200 pounds [estimate]
I put a Starrett 36" straight edge on the tables and they appear to be dead flat. The fence has a slight bow end to end. I will probably have it Blanchard ground flat. The entire machine was sand blasted, primed and then painted black. Email me at jgtratcomcast.net [replace "at" with @] for more information and pictures.
