Where do you live Canada? Reason I ask is I see the Ridgid at HD all the time and it’s never been 650 in Texas. More like $450.

The jointer is a very simple tool. Cutterhead, fence, and motor, so in my world paying $300 more for a little better fence is not worth it when it stays @ 90 degrees 99% of the time and $300 will buy another tool or a ton of wood.

Quality is important no doubt, but quality and price is not always linear. Is the Delta worth $300 more than the Grizz, Ridgid or Craftsman?

It is if you think it is and are willing to pay the $$$.

I agree with Bull, check CL.
