Re: Help identifying this 8" Jointer
If the price is right as someone mentioned a new head is a very viable fix. Even if you are unsure of the machine, if you remove the head and send it to Byrd they will make a duplicate with carbide inserts. I have a Bridgewood jointer and when I inquired about a new head I was informed that the model I have came with 3 different heads from 3 different manufacturers in Taiwan. As a lot of them those jointers were sold in the US they had the specs for all three and sent me PDF files which allowed me to determine which one I had.I have an older Powermatic shaper and it is that shade of green. It is hard to tell from pictures as the Asian stuff is copied from North American to begin with
