    It’s most likely a 6” jointer. Look through the VM.org photos.

    i have the very same jointer - 6" - but mine has a 3/4 baldor motor. it's really a great machine - very solid. i can't imagine you'll ever need any more than that size motor.

    8" is a pretty big piece of machinery. I'd say it's a 6". 3/4 hp should be ok.

    Looks a lot like a 37-207 (open stand). I have Grandpa's Monkey Wards version that the phone company bought him when he retired. Still works like a champ.

    The pork chop got broken before I was old enough to remember. That is a painted wooden replacement he made. He can't be blamed for the green wire holding the 4" dust port trailer park modification either. That was all me .
    I always forget . . . Is it the letter "S" or the letter "C" that is silent in the word scent?

    Thanks for the advice guys. Something with wrong with the VM.org site but I've gotten a lot of confirmation now that this is a 6". If it were 8" I would think more of it but there's really too many other ok 6" options out there that I'm gonna wait for something better to come along.

    It was working yesterday - but they’re probably doing some maintenance now. Or hiding eggs.
