I am in posession of a 1924 Oliver 166 16" jointer with a motor on head drive. The cradle (for lack of a better term) that supports the motor and head is missing the rib on the outfeed table side. Perhaps it was broken when the previous owner did work on the head. The casting rib is missing altogether, however the other 3/4 of the casting is complete. Where it bolts to the base in the front and rear is fine with no cracks that I can see. Does anyone know someone who has one of these fine machines for parts? Can it be run safely with that part of the casting missing? ANY help would be greatly appreciated.

I am also looking for one of the round table locking knobs for the infeed table as well as one of the fence locking knobs. I could have these machined, but would prefer one of the originals.
