Seems reasonable for prices around here anyway (Boston area). I got my Jet JJ-CS6 for just a shade less money. It was newer than that, and it better shape. No repainting needed. But Powermatic carries some cache, and older motors tend to be good. A jointer is a simple beast, and if needed it could easily be worked on. Check the flatness of the tables before you buy, but assuming they look good and the motor powers on you should be in good shape. I might ask if they’ll go to 200, but depending on how desperate you are for one you shouldn’t feel bad at 250.

While you were asking around the deal went away. Or was it you who bought it ?
