When we heard that this giant walnut tree in Brandon, Manitoba had reached the end of it's lifespan and was being cut down, we started to get all of our ducks in a row to ensure that this beautiful wood became lumber rather than firewood.

Bought this circa 1953 Beaver Canada 6" jointer from a fella on kijiji who had it rusting away in his garage, Belonged to his father. Weighs a ton for it's size! Re-packed the bearings, replaced the motor...turned out to be a real work horse. A very useful and dependable machine. They don't make-em like this anymore!
