I'll give the new owner your email address so you can walk him through it. If it wasn't a jointer I might load it up in the truck and head out of the city. But it's way too heavy for that, and I no longer have my trailer, so this thing ain't goin' nowhere except to someone else's shop.
When I need something fixed I drive out to farming country. They have people who will fix assorted farming equipment, and take a stab at any other machine repair jobs I might have, for a very reasonable price. But, it's a two hour drive each way.
I haven't solved it yet. I had an electrician come out and look at it. They said they could run a line from the existing box by creating a "tandem" circuit and that this would give me 100amps in the shop. They would use an existing conduit underground and just pull the new wire through. Then they would install about 10 new sockets for me. Unfortunately the price they quoted for this was 6,500 which was way to high for me. Frankly it just sounds high overall but they were the first and so far only electrician I have contacted so I don't know how high it was.
