Help a girl in the hobby out. I’m ready to level-up in my woodworking and am searching the classifieds for 8” jointers.
Problem is, I’m a newbie at this. (Brand new to LJ!) I have a couple of old American made Delta machines, and they’re fine. I don’t know much about tuning up or maintaining old tools, but am starting to learn.
I’ve found an old American made DJ-20 for $900 or an old Powermatic 60 for $750. The Delta isn’t really in the same league as the PM is it? Are these reasonable prices? They both seem to be in great condition, tuned up, and working fine. If the sellers have accurately represented them, in any case.
Which would you buy?
