I thought they has a jointer, waiting to get a proper power connection.
The reason I brought it up is that the surplus sales tend to have extremenly low prices because they really want to just get rid of the stuff. Last time I went I was the last one out (having loaded a couple of sets of map drawers) and the guy said if I wanted any stacking chairs I could have them for free...
As for the power requirements, a quick look will reveal whether the motor is a standard frame motor, in which case it could be replaced with a single-phase motor. Cost depends on motor size and availability of second-hand motors.
Unfortunately UW Central Stores does not post pictures or model numbers for what they are selling. I've never tried calling ahead to see if I can get the information.
If is is Too Big To Move chances are it will not sell and (assuming I go to the sale) I can report back with details. They may be willing to take an offer a day or two after on unsold stuff. Of course, it may also be Too Big To Have At Kwartzlab...

A planer would be great, but I think a jointer would be more immediately
useful. I haven't been to a TON in a while, so I don't know if the jointer
powerup is already achieved. :-)
