Any Opinions on this jointer? Person is asking $350 and claims it’s in perfect condition with recently sharpened knives and a mobile base. Photo seems to support his claims, Thanks for your help

If it’s actually in great shape, $350 isn’t a bad price. It isn’t a steal, but it’s certainly fair. I’ve never used this particular model, but jointers are simple machines. Most manufacturers have gotten them pretty well figured out and Delta has been making them forever. This model looks new enough to be made overseas, but the horror stories you hear about asian manufactured products come from a small percentage of the machines that are made. Most work great. Just make sure that the beds are flat and then run a few test cuts.
