Yet Another Tool Acquisition - Jointer and Planer

 So, I picked up some new tools.  Actually, I've had one for a long time, but I'm missing parts.  The one I've had but I'm missing parts is the jointer (some call them "joiners", but this isn't joining an old tool support group and is instead intended to create joints, so I'm using the official term of "jointer").  It's a Craftsman 113.20651, or an 6 1/8" jointer, made in April of '74.  The 113 indicates it was made by Emerson Electric.  (Yes, that's a can of WD-40 sitting on it, and a distributor cap).  The blades to be ordered are Craftsman #9-2293 (sometimes just referred to as 2293), an update to part # 18112.  The manual is available at if needed.

The parts I need make up the fence assembly, or parts 21229 (the fence body), 67009 (cutter guard), 21232 (fence end plate), 21736 (fence tilt scale), and the knobs and spacers/shafts (21440-plunger assembly, 21430-stop pin assembly, 47624-spacer, and 62331-knob lock assembly).  I can make most things fairly easy if needed - not too worried about the pins/plungers/knobs/spacers if someone has measurements of them - I can easily make the parts myself.  The fence, end plate, and the tilt scale might be a bit more difficult to make (though I could do exactly that if push comes to shove).

And recently, i've added a planer :

It's a Delta portable planer model 22-560.  It is in good shape, I'd like to fire it up and see how sharp the blades are, but I'm not sure I'll get to that any time soon.
