  1. I'm looking at two used 16" jointers and I want to hear any advice on which one is better, or if neither is worth getting.

    One is a 1959 Wotan (German) and is 3 phase, 220 volt.

    The other is a late 1980s (the owner thinks) EMA (Italian?). I don't know about the electrical.

    If I could get either machine for the same price, which one is the one you would choose? And why?

    When I get enough money down the road I would consider changing the head to a new helical head.

    The alternative to one of these machines is a new General International 16" with a helical head, which will cost me about $8K all in.

    Thanks for any insights.
