Item Description:
Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing.

Twelve inc Colladay Jointer in very good condition. I own this Jointer and a 12" Newman and looking to downsize a little so I'm willing to part withe the Colladay.
I searched for prices of similar pieces of equipment and it appears that $3,500 would be a fair price for this piece, of course any reasonable offer will be considered.
Buyer will be responsible for pick up and delivery of the item.

Joseph O. Colladay began manufacturing woodworking and iron-working machinery in 1867; he operated under his own name. At some point the name became Jos. O. Colladay & Bros. (There appears to have been a time during which both names were used.) By 1919 the name had changed to Jos. O. Colladay Co., Inc. In that year the business was purchased by Lawrence C. Power, who changed the name to Colladay Machine Works. Power had founded L. Power & Co., but had left the firm.

All of the Colladay patents we have found were granted to one William D. Herschel. Before working for Colladay, Herschel had worked for C. B. Rogers & Co. and First & Pryibil.
