My first vintage iron!
« on: March 20, 2017, 09:08:26 pm »
Sorry for not posting in awhile,life has been busy,but I needed to post this because I know some of you guys have an appreciation for old iron. This past weekend I found this nice old jointer. It is a 16" J.A. Fay &Egan. It was advertised as a12" machine but when I got it loaded I realized it was a 16"er! Bonus! It is very complete for its age,1923. I plan on a complete restoration. It has a 3 knife round safety cutter head with ball bearings,and both original guards. I look forward to any advice or comments from you guys, thanks.

Nice machine.  You'll love it when you get it up and running.  I have a friend who has the same machine.

You might be able to find out more information about the machine at vintagemachinery.org.

woodworker9, I did my research on vintagemachinery.com before I bought this, and there is the same machine on there , same color from the same institution just 2 numbers older on the serial numbers . It's a great resource. I have lots to learn.
