Delta Model 37-207 Jointer

So, I’ve gone off the deep end… When I started this whole “wood working thing,” my idea was to keep it simple and aimed at a system that could do basic cabinetry work and still be collapsed and put away in a minimal space when not in use.  And then, like I typically do, I got deeper and deeper into the craft and began to obsess on the vintage machines those before us used.
