i was given a 4 3/8 craftsman planner/jointer
manufactured in the 1950's
i little rusted, i took about an hour to buff the rust out.other wise it
looks like it was never used, still has sharp (orginal) blades.
i found its parts list and user guide on the internet (good ol craftsman).
it recommends a 1/2 horse power moter at 1750 rpm on a 5 inch pully to get
the desired working rpms.
i found the moter at harbor freight.
now all i need is that 5 inch pully.
so far i cant find one doing an internet search.
there is some local parts junk yard close by but i would like a new one.( i
may rethink this according to price)
