Reading in an old FIneWodworking on old tools, babbet is not that hard to deal with.
30 inch, must take a good 10 HP to run!

Will make a 30" cut. Table is 34" wide w/rabbet ledge. Overall length is 84"? long. There are some poor photos of it posted [here] in July 2019. Better photos of it posted owwm.org in Aug? of that same yr. Mine is flat belt pulley drive.
I keep it covered under tons of stuff, [in tractor bay] so rain can't get to it. According to a catalog reprint [@ owwm.org] it weighs approx 2200 lbs. Originally came w/ 5 HP motor. Cylinder (safety) head is 5" dia.

To whomever buys this, I'll buy your smaller hand-me-down! :cool:
that lil thing? I sold my 8" Delta to another member. I'm quite comfortable using my 12" Crescent. But if I had the gumption to restore the Porter, I'd do it. Even tho many say pouring babbitt is easy enuff, w/the kind of luck I have, had, trying to fix stuff - I've learned to NOT, try. I'll leave it to someone else.

It would only help your case to have some photos, some details about condition and a price listed.

Im not interested, but if I was I’d expect those things to be listed in the ad to save everybody a bit of time.

Good luck with the sale. Have you listed this at OWWM / Vintage Machinery?

it was posted over at OWWM.org two years ago, with several photos of it. I had asked members on owwm about what I would need to do to restore the jointer, and so posted shots of it from several angles. A couple of members [privately] told me what I could price it at.
I thought I had photos of it here - on this site. But your statement implies otherwise. Will correct that,...just need a drier / sunnier day.

I posted the link to your old post above that includes all the information including pictures from the shop crawl. Thought that would help but seems like it’s getting overlooked.
