Default Just purchased a used PM model 54 joiner

Hello to all, I signed up for this forum as I believe I can download a manual for a Powermatic model # 54 that I purchased used. I need a manual as the joiner is in pcs. and I do not have the swing guard thing. Probably an important part, but I am new to this. My main interest is woodturning which I started about 5 mths ago. I got this joiner so that I can prepare hardwood boards which I glue together and turn vases, boxes etc.

There are a couple models that start with 54.

But this should get you going.
When I bought it, we had to take it apart to fit into my Camry.

One other thing. the spelling is 'jointer' with a "T".

Be sure to come back and post pictures of your jointer and things you turn out.

The swing thing (guard) can be made with a notched dowel attached to a flat piece of wood.
A much needed safety item.

Hey Ralph, thanks for the info and manual. I bought this jointer at a estate sale and after I got it home realized that a few parts are missing. Items 1,2,3, and 35 listed on page 20 of the manual that you directed me to. If by chance someone is parting out a Powermatic Model 54 I would be interested in purchasing these parts. I did not have to pay alot for this jointer but it is not much good without the fence base (item # 1 on page 20 ot the manual.
