Selling my 8” delta jointer. Great machine with parallelogram beds for easy coplanar adjusting. 8” cutting capacity, 76” long beds with extra long infeed table. Machine was manufactured in 2000, and is in great shape. I currently have it tuned very well(beds coplanar, knives set properly, fence 90°). Has a 6” dust port and a mobile base. I also have the owner’s manual stored somewhere. It is at grade with my driveway, so it will be pretty easy to wheel out on its mobile base and onto your trailer/box truck etc. Upgrading to a 12” jointer. Located in SW PA.

$975 OBO

The DJ-20 is a great machine. The extra bed length makes it quite easy to get flat, square stock.
You should find someone who is interested. I sure like mine.

I sold the last one i had for $800, it sold fast. With your price it should sell just as quick. I really liked the dj20, if i ever own another one i would not regret it.

Good luck with the sell.

Thanks, guys. Yeah, I love the machine. I just happen to have a stockpile of 10-12” boards, and I wanted a helical head. I think the byrd head through grizzly is $350 for this machine if future buyers are thinking about it.

If you’re looking for a 12”, there’s a Grizzly G609X on CL in Dallas, PA for $1500.

Geez…. I would snap that up in a heartbeat if you were closer. Great Jointer at a great price. I would need to rent a truck and you are probably ten hours away in said truck. That, and I would have to disassemble it to get it down some stairs to the shop.

Sigh…..

nice machine – - but 1500 miles is too far for me.

I hereby take the extra “teaser” photos to be an offer of “free delivery within 600 miles”. If I am correct and you can land it in my driveway, I am the proud new owner;-)

The helix head is $469 for that, is someone selling it for less?

Grizzly for $385. I knew I wasn’t going crazy. That is the Byrd brand too, not their knockoff.

The distance isn’t the problem for me, I just don’t have that much cash on hand. Wish I did though.
