I just made a new addition to my shop I up graded my jointer. My old one is a 4” craftsman that was my Dad’s it is almost as old as I am, I think that the only reason I didn’t up grade sooner is because it was my Dad’s, but I final gave in and started looking on CL. after about a month of calling on jointers that I was interested in and being told “sorry I just sold it”, it happend I answered an add for a powermatic 6” long bed model 54A for $650.00 after doing a quick web search to see if it was worth the $, I found that if it was in good shape (as the add claimed) it was a good deal. Fortunately it just 5 minutes away from were I work (what luck) so I jumped in the truck and went to take a look during my lunch hour. to my surprise it was all the add claimed and more it had not been use very much, it came with original manuals, tools and 2 unopened sets of knives that are standard with an new one. so I bought it for his asking price. It is now set up in my shop i just added a picture of it to my workshop page. I have used it several time and it works like a charm.
