    That is the Jeremy Schmidt design and the one I built. I used square steel tube instead of making the 2 main sections out of flat stock, which reduced the amount of welding. If you shop around you...

    If I understand the OP correctly the desire for a bigger or better bandsaw is separate from wanting to make knife handles more efficiently. I doubt having another bandsaw will accomplish that goal. ...

    I would really like to see your restoration but after turning off my adblock (photobucket requirement) some of the ads apparently contained malware, which my virus protection was fortunately able to...

    After doing that I get some clear pics until my virus protection stops everything because of some malware.

    Congrats on the lathe restoration. Once you get into lathe work I think you'll be surprised with all of the cool stuff you can make with it - bowls, tool handles, finials, etc. It also makes for a...

    The unique part with respect to Northfield only as far as I know is the bracket that holds the cutterhead guard. It is like no other that I've seen from other Northfield 12MD owner's pictures. ...

    Has anyone discovered a unique part on this jointer, at least something that doesn't appear on most other Northfield 12" medium duty jointers?

    The gray paint is definitely original. Northfield apparently changed from gray to green paint around 1967 according to the Vintage Machinery website. I still may restore the machine and paint it...

    I have 4 different types of mobile bases on woodworking machines. By far the best is the Industrial Mobile Base by SawStop. A few pumps of the hydraulic lift and it moves effortlessly in any...

    Thanks. What appears to be rust on the table is actually flash rust from the fence that was taken off with a Scotch-Brite pad. It was from the fence sitting on my truck BedRug that was slightly...
  11. My new to me Northfield 12" jointer PICS

    I picked up my new to me Northfield 12" jointer yesterday. The seller couldn't have been nicer and helpful in the loading process, always a major plus in the buying process. It seems to be in...

    Ditto on NFs customer service. I contacted them to ask about the machine I intended to buy and Jeff, their sales manager couldn't have been more helpful and patient with all of my questions. ...

    I would've tried to beat you to the punch on the Supramax but it was way too far for me. You folks in the NE and rust belt area have the pick of the litter compared to the iron deprived SW. Wood...
  16. Excited about getting my new to me Northfield 12" jointer!!!

    As the title states I'm really excited about picking up my new to me Northfield 12" jointer. Slowly but surely I'm making headway in my pursuit to replace my Asian machines with those that are more...

    The Accu-Finish is a slow (very slow) speed grinder as opposed to the 3600 rpm Baldor tool grinder. A variety of wheels can be used with it including plate mounted diamond wheels. I wouldn't use it...

    After spending a little time with the Accu-Finish grinder this morning I can see that it will be more useful than first expected.
  19. Which one - Porter 300C or Northfield (medium duty) 12" Jointer?

    As mentioned in previous posts I've been looking for a better quality 12" jointer and the two mentioned above are available somewhat close by. Any opinions on one over the other? Both are direct...
  20. Accu-Finish grinder used in woodworking?

    I just picked up an Accu-Finish grinder that seems primarily used in the machinist community. It's a slow speed grinder similar to a Tormek but without a water trough and flat grinds instead of...

    No direct source that I can recall and I don't have much experience with surface grinders to back up my statement. I'm just a hobby machinist with a surface grinder. However I've been told and have...

    Jointer 3 Phase Power Advantage

    One of the advantages in 3 phase power for surface grinders is that it reduces ripples in the finish caused by pulses in the motor. Does that same advantage translate to jointers that use 3 phase...

    12" Jointer Mobility?

    I'm about to purchase a larger jointer and question its mobility. All of my woodworking machines with the exception of a Oneway lathe are on mobile bases. But with a 12" or 16" Northfield jointer...

    In my travel to look at a Northfield 12 jointer there is also a Northfield 16" jointer enroute. My eyes were focused on a 12" jointer, moving up from an 8" but would the 16" serve me better in the...

    Nice looking jointer John. I can readily see that it was a "slam dunk" decision. The question on checking flatness was really directed to Andrew since he apparently made it an important factor in...
