I don’t think I would go for a Mastercraft jointer unless money was really tight. I guess it depends on what you need it to do. Carpentry level stuff and light cuts are likely OK but I wouldn’t want to work one too hard or use it where a real quality job is needed. Also, their jointer likely has a fairly short bed, meaning that it is only good for fairly short boards. Better than nothing, but there are lots of better jointers that aren’t very expensive these days, like small Deltas, General International etc.

Hey, maybe one of us should tell our foreign friends here on LJs why the heck you’d even look for a jointer at what appears to be a tire store !
