That is absolutely not a good deal IMO. That is a dovetail ways jointer that looks like it’s been pretty roughly handled.

There’s not a lot of moving parts in jointers, so there’s no real durability concerns, but $800 is very steep for what is ultimately exactly the same as the 1990s Taiwanese imports that are exact copies of that jointer and routinely sell for half that price or less.
