So I’m looking for a brand new jointer in $600 price range. The only ones I could find are 2 diff 6in from grizzly (sold out on website) and rigid 6in jointer from home depot. Its just hard for me to justify the rigid when a couple years ago. Home depot was selling the exact same jointer @ $200-$400

Whenever I go through magazines from a couple years ago. You can find jointers everywhere 6in for $400. Now any jointer you look for, the starting price is $800 – $1000 for bare essentialls.

Any help would be appreciated.

-- Thank You Trevor OBrion

The Ridgid and Griz are the only new jointers in that price range I know of. The only time I remember the Ridgid being near $200 would have been a closeout. Yesterday’s pricing is really irrelevant….you’re ready to buy one in today’s market, so today’s market prices are in play. Unless you’re willing to buy used, $600 is entry price AFAIK.

I have a ridgid sitting in my shop that needs a good home for $350, If you are close enough. Otherwise I would go with the 350 delta or the ridgid. Best of luck.

I would recommend buying used. There’s not much to a jointer. If it was not abused, a used jointer will work just as good as new for much less money.

Trevor:

Like Brian, I also have a Rigid that I want out of my garage. I am in Reno, if you are willing to drive that far.

I ended up purchasing the jet 6in jointer, brand new. So it was shipped to my house. Alot easier that way. Thanks everyone for your help
