If it’s actual the JWP-15HO (title of post says JPW-15HO) and in good shape, $250 seems like a great deal to me.

I just about fainted when I thought you were looking at a JWP15-HH for $250, that’s the kind of deal that would be worth driving across the country for.

Oh, one other point is that it may be wired for something other than standard 120V household current. Just something to keep in mind.

No luck with the numbers / letters in the title , so I went with this one :

“This machine was produced in Asia, and was sold under different brands e.g. Grizzly, Enco, MSC, etc. ”.......

Be sure to check the condition of the blades. You may have to replace them. And be sure the motor is in good condition and not overheating after a few minutes of use. And be sure you receive the blade setting tool. If the owner has a replacement set of blades, be sure you get them as well. If not, be sure to order a set once you accept delivery.

This sounds like a great deal!
