Because of my accident I needed to sell my Grizzly 8” jointer/planer. I needed the $$ to buy a wheelchair. Bummer. I had only had it 11 months.

After I sold it I told myself I’m better off without it, can do it on the router, table saw, etc. But then, yesterday afternoon, I saw an ad on Craigslist for a brand new, still with the grease on it Sears Craftsman Pro jointer. The guy wanted $400 for it. It was still in the box! I went and looked at it, he set it up, and the thing is brand new. I bought it. :)
