    Thanks for the reply I posted over at Owwm.org and the 1 rely so far says it is a ball bearing machine. I have decided to purchase it and will be picking it up tomorrow. I feel like I may be starting down a rabbet hole of old machinery.

    Here are some more pictures. The seller doesn’t know if they are Babbitt or ball bearings. Any ideas?

    Thanks again. After researching that I may have to pass if it had Babbitt simply for the fact I can’t handle that fix and wouldn’t want a large paperweight to get rid of

    How can you tell if it has these types of bearings?

    Thanks for the info and appreciate it. I am leaning toward offering a little lower just for my drive and hassle of getting a forklift from a friend to unload it at my place

    Thanks for the info. I am having seller send me some more info and pictures. He said there is some pitting around the edge of the beds. He bought it a couple years ago from a cabinetmaker closing up shop. THat cabinet maker had replaced the motor at some point. He bought a large drum sander so he says he doesn’t use this anymore. Also said he would hone the knifes after use. Any idea about if the blades are bad what the options would be?

    That is the biggest thing I am worried about. Seller says it is about 1500#. The seller says he used a skid loader and tilt trailer to move it a few years ago and offered to use the skid loader to put it onto a trailer I would have. I have access to tractors but not sure if they could lift it off the trailer. He is asking $750

    I came across a 1924 Fay and Egan 506 Lightning 12" Jointer for sale. It is single phase and seller says it works well. Anybody have any input on the machine? Is it worth buying? What should I look out for? I like the idea of a vintage machine and love the 12" size. I have a 30x30 shop that could accommodate the machine. It is an 1.5 hour drive for me so I wanted to get some info before I committed to making the drive to look. Also any ideas how to load/move such a beast of a machine?

    What made the biggest difference as far as aesthetics was ripping some osb down as the crown molding and painting it with some extra charcoal paint we had laying around.

    Yeah I will need upgrade the electric when I get bigger tools in the future. Currently each wall has 3 double-outlets and are on separate circuits, however only 15 amp

    Thanks for all the replies. Been busy with the new house and shop. The shop door wasn’t installed properly and was leaking under the threshold which necessitated me putting in a new door. I took your advice and put a couple coats of white paint on the walls and ceiling to brighten it up. It helped but I think I will be putting in a few more light fixtures once I figure out how my workflow will be. Still needing to move some things back to the shelves after painting but I am excited.

    Woodshop footwear

    I know most here are looking for steel toed shoes but if you are looking for tennis shoes. I couldn’t recommend Hoka brand shoes more. They are all I wear at work and I stand/walk on tile floors all day and they are the best shoes I have found.

    I am planning to make the Jay Bates bench and I already have a small(3x4) Paulk style outfeed/work surface.

    I probably won’t paint because I really don’t like to and am not sure how the osb would take it. I am about painted out because we are painting the entire house right now and have had enough for a long while
