I went by and looked at the jointer.

The tables and fence were flat, the knives were sharp and free of nicks, all the controls worked smoothly, it had no rust, and not even the tiniest bit of vibration. I’d have guessed it was new.

With tax, a new one would be $435. He wouldn’t come down much, but I was able to take it home for $275, for a savings of $160 or about 37% over buying new.

I got it back home and put back together. I haven’t adjusted or cleaned anything yet, but it’s working very well and I’m extremely happy with the purchase.

Thanks for the quick assistance. You guys are great!
