Rockwell Delta Milwaukee 6 inch jointer

I had used a 4 inch Delta Homecraft jointer for several years and had been very satisfied with it. An employee transferred into the office where I worked. While chatting with him over coffee one day he mentioned he had some woodworking tools that he wanted to get rid of. I went to his home that evening and one of the tools was a Rockwell Delta Milwaukee 6 inch jointer. It was heavy cast iron and appeared to be in excellent condition. We came to an agreement and I took serial # 90-1129 home with me. My birthday is Nov. 29 (1129) so I figured this tool was meant to be mine. I mounted it on a Craftsman tool stand and connected a 1/2 hp Craftsman motor. It has been a great addition to my shop. I don't know the age of the jointer. I would appreciate any info on the jointer's build date.
