876 miles, 15 hours of driving, about 2 hours of disconnecting, loading and strapping down and this gorgeous 1945 16 inch Oliver Machinery jointer is now sitting safely in my shop. Can’t wait to get it set up.

In its old shop

Wow. How many Busch's does it take to lift that off the ground?  [poke]

Jealous.

As of 10/17 I am out of the Dog business and pursuing other distractions. Thanks for a fun ride!

Got the Rotary phase converter rewired for my shop. Updated the connection from the RPC to the mag switch for the jointer. And it lives. Takes about 2 minutes to coast to a stop. Gotta get some wax on the bed and put the fence back. I think the fence weighs more than a hundred pounds.  [eek] Coming along.  [big grin]

Nice piece of equipment Ron...what's the HP rating needed to run this beast?

It has a 5 HP 3 phase direct drive. A 10hp RPC should do fine but the previous owner had it hooked up to a 15HP unit and I got that. Needs a 50 amp 240 circuit for it.
