Just bought a Powermatic Model 50 jointer/planer off ebay for $205. It looks well built with a little rust on it. I think with a little touching up it will make a nice addition to my shop as I was in desperate need of a jointer. So, How do you think I did on this purchase? Here’s the ebay LINK

It looks like a lot of machine for the money. Well done indeed.

I’d say you did pretty good if you’re not going to have a lot of freight on it.

SHould be less than a tank of gas in my truck there and back to pick it up, so that won’t be bad.
