My experience with jet tools is not a positive one for tools that use to be considered a good mid-range choice I found they do not hold up well to nominal use that even a hobbyist would expect. I’ve also seen and read about Powermatic not being the tools they use to be.Since I have had good service from all of my Grizzly tools including my12” spiral head jointer, it would be a grizzly jointer and I would recommend a upgrade from the one you have listed this one has a spiral head a vast improvement over straight blades and for just a little more you could ether get a 8” jointer or a spiral head 6”Jointer. from the one you have listed.
