i really don't know about the color, but the gent did say that it was open base...maybe splayed legs but i don't know. i didn't even ask about color, but it seems it might have been before the newer white paint jobs.
looking over Sam's list from the archive, it was the only item that didn't sell. wonder what that means???
i am leaning towards getting it anyway, and finding out the hard way what it's all about. i wonder a little if i should get a jointer before i get a planer, but the price seems right. i haven't been able to find a used jointer in the DFW area so the timing seems good.
plus i have one of those Rainbow vaccuum cleaners that i plan to sell. it should be bring close to the cost of the jointer.
If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space.
