  • RIP Big Joe



    Was at the junk yard and stumbled across this. Sad sight, kind of pissed that I missed it when it got there. But look's like it was dead when it came to the junk yard.

    Man,
    That is a sad sight. Just think though, Big Joe may come back as a couple of mill-drills.

      That was one of the first Taiwanese clones,oh well off to China to come back again.

      Is that an IH Cub wheel weight in the background?Those are worth $75-100 each here.Also make good ballast weights for grinder stands.
      I just need one more tool,just one!

        Looks like 2 cub weights. One on each side of plow disk.

          Looks like Big Joe might have gone through a fire. Warpage?

            As mentioned, in a few years, Big Joe will rise again, Phoenix-like, from the ashes. I predict a few Chinese mill-drills or 3-in-1 machines with some voids in the castings from slight traces of burnt Big Joe.....

              It looks like Joe was set up to do some grinding when he was pulled from service.
