I found this on Craigs list I have never owned a jointer before and have been checking Craigs
missed out on a Model 53 Powermatic then saw this one it is a old Craftsman 351 227240 looked in ok shape except for the blades and they are ordered.
wondering if i got taken I paid $100 for it?
it seems to run very quiet and smooth.

A hundred bucks for a 6 inch long bed jointer is a good deal. I’m ASSUMING it’s made by Emerson and is basically the same as a RIDGID. The slightly older ones have American made motors which are preferable to the Mexican motors and now the Chinese motors. Nice score.

Indeed 100 box for such a nice jointer isn,t that much, in contrast it’s a bargain.
