I agree with MRunix(brad).When I was looking for a jointer I asked other members what they recommended for $200,almost all warned me about the ” motorized bench top models” a few had good service and no complains but even those guys moved on to the older ,heavy cast iron 6” or 8” jointers.
some of these older models may need bearing /belt changed but not all.the only thing you may have to do before putting it to use is to clean up some surface rust ,but as mentioned above, keep checking CL and jump on a deal when you see one,driving a couple of hours to get any tool is part of the fun.
