Topic tags/keywords: steel city jointer craigslist 406550 tool

Found this deal on a steel city 406550 8” Jointer on Craigslist. Wasn’t planning on purchasing a jointer but if it’s a good enough deal I might act on it. /tls/6099325675

I know the reviews of steel city is greatly mixed and CS is non existent. What do you think of this unit, it’s asking price and what do you think a reasonable offer would be?

I thought Steel City went out of business. Can parts be found?

Steel City is now called Cutech and yes parts are available. That jointer is going to be even heavier than others due to the granite beds. If I could, I would consider buying it at that price IF things all checked out flat and square. Especially if equipped with a helical head cutter.

Here’s the Steel City website that came up from a Google search. It looks like they started in TN but relocated to Chicago, IL.

I think that’s a good deal for 500.

I believe the 8” is only 2 blade quick change knives not the spiral.

Have your say...
