It amazes me to look at the ads in old magazines. The prices appear to be higher than the same size and brand that is available today. It seems like 8” jointers were selling for around $800 in 1980. That is right around what you can expect to pay for an 8” jointer at Grizzly today. No doubt that the $800 jointer in 1980 is a heavier duty machine than what you can buy for $800 today.
