    I guess I need to find someone to buy my old 12" Oliver jointer, now!
    That's terrific, congrats!

    Glad someone finally got that one- I was eyeing it and the price is good. I was more worried about finding someone to transport it. Looked like he has some easy access in that garage though.

    Apologies. I've put it in my profile now.

    I'm in Memphis, TN.

    The garage door will be a huge help. My father and I moved the 12" Oliver jointer by ourselves into a Uhaul trailer. I think we just take these kinds of things as chances to prove ourselves even more.

    So, we're heading on Monday to pick this up, but I'm hoping someone has some information they can provide. I'm getting conflicting information from sources and the owner isn't home this week to measure.

    What size is the arbor on the saw? Is it capable of 12" blade, but has a 5/8" arbor?

    It should be a 5/8" arbor. SCM/Minimax made them this way to make using a typical dado stack easier as well as, presumably, to make it easier for folks to use existing blades when they upgrade to the Euro machine from a North American style saw. And FYI, the Forrest WW-II 40T and 48T 12" blade does come in 5/8" arbor so you don't need to use a bushing but any 12" blade with a 1" bore can be used with a bushing. I bought my 12" WW-II 48T blades from Silvers Mill for very nice prices.

    And this is why you never assume! I just included two blades and my 6 dado stack with the sale of my Grizzly saw. Guess its time to upgrade blades too!

    It is also nice that you have the option to also use 10" blades on the machine. I use them sometimes on my CU 300, rather than the 12". That way the specialty blades I already have in 10" do not have to be duplicated.

    Don't forget to readjust the riving knife though.

    Mine has a 1" arbor and can spin 14" blade. I think that the 1"er was an option.

    This was a big benefit to me after I bought my S315WS slider...using the same 10" blades I already owned without changing the bore until it was appropriate to replace them.
