I would keep an eye on Craigslist and any auction sites you know of (not talking about ebay, I’m mean real auctioneers).
So far, I’ve gotten at least half the big tools in my shop off Craigslist.
The jointer for $75, the bandsaw for $100. They were both older models, but work great. The jointer needed a new fence assembly, but I found that on ebay for $25.

My best score, was the Delta 36-982 table saw for…. $225.
It’s a $900+ saw and was under 3 years old. You know the story… bought for one project and sat in the garage.

You can see both saws on my workshop page.

With a little patience, you can find really good deals on Craigslist or some regional auctions.
