I found some Duro jointers on the Vintage Machinery web site but not that specific one. They look like a solid machine but the beds are a little on the short side it appears. The ones I saw were mostly circa 1950s.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Sorry, no idea but I would have thought maybe early 60's ? I probably started reading those two publications around then.
