A work buddy has offered to sell me his Jointer http://www.searspartsdirect.com/model-number/11/3206931/0247/0725000.html
For $200.
The machine has not been used all that much, and is in good condition.
I have been thinking about thecurrent model Ridgid floor stander and the Delta benchtop.
I don’t know if I really need a Jointer but I have been lusting for one for a few months.

Buy or pass on the Craftsman?

I have an older Craftsman 6” jointer. Very useful tool in the shop. You will use it. $200.00 is as high as I would pay. Try for less.

I just bought the same exact model off of craigslist for $100 3 weeks ago. It was in excellent condition too and on the original stand. If I had more in the budget to spend I would get one with a longer infeed/outfeed table. For $200-300 you should be able to find something used that will have a longer infeed/outfeed table. That being said, after 3 weeks of use, it has been great. I just haven’t tried to run anything longer than 6 feet yet. Also this model came from the factory with either a 1/2 hp or 3/4 hp motor. Find out which one it has, obviously the bigger the better.
