My old Craftsman jointer's motor is wore out. It has a plastic housing that has cracked with age allowing the armature to slip backward out of front bearing and vibrate really bad. Motor and housing are no longer available from Sears.
The jointer is model# 149.236220 and the motor is a Northland 5/8 H.p. #73523. I was wondering if any one might have a motor or even the housing from a bad motor. Otherwise I guess I will try to build a bracket and use a different motor that I can mount outside the unit.
Any ideas would be appreciated as I am in a really small shop and the new bench top jointers I have looked at leave a lot to be desired. This one is heavy cast iron and does a good job for what it is.
