Vintage Wodworking Machinery

Vintage Wodworking Machinery was founded as a public service to amateurs and professionals who enjoy using and/or restoring vintage machinery. Our main mission is to provide information about vintage machinery that is generally difficult to locate. This is accomplished primarily through contributions of the users of this site.  Many people have graciously contributed documentation of old woodworking machinery that is in their personal collections to this site so that others can share in its use.

It has a large database of manuals and photos of old machines. Chances are, if your machine is from a well known manufacturer or even a lesser known extinct manufacturer , you’ll be able to find the manual for it there. They have a very active discussion forum full of people who love nothing more than their old tools and helping people get these machines going. The archive has 10 years of collected wisdom, and if you can't find what you need, just ask.. You’ll probably get a quick answer.
