Looks like it's a JP0600 Emerson made RIDGID jointer. That would mean that it was made prior to Sept. of 03 but that shouldn't be looked at as a minus. That base should make it more stable than the current RIDGID offering.
I decided to change calling the bathroom the "John" and renamed it the "Jim". I feel so much better saying I went to the Jim this morning.
I concur with BadgerDave, it does appear to be the JP0600. I have an uncle who had one (before he drove into it - don't ask). A very functional unit - only slight drawback is that it is a bit top-heavy. However, if you put a bolt or two (couple of big Tapcons, maybe) through the feet of the base into the floor to secure it, you're set. I've seen these go only as cheap as about $150 on eBay, but then you have to add shipping and everything else to that. For $180, if it's in great condition, that's a bargain.
