I am just starting to gather some wood working equipment so my knowledge and pocketbook are a bit light.
An G1182 is up for $375. My hunch is that’s a bit high but not bad. All help welcome.

I would think $200 is a fair price, and even then maybe on the high side depending on your location.

It varies with the given market place, but depending on condition, I’d think $200-$300 would be inline. Comparables tend to be $600+ now.

I paid 225 for my 1182 about 4 years ago. It’s an older one.

Thank you for the replies.
I live just north of Harrisburg Pa in a rural area. Most of the $200 jointers for sale around here are usually old craftsman. This was a one owner and kept well so I really didn’t want to wait nor did I want to travel a hundred miles. The gentleman was close, his small private shop was neat so I bought it. The next on the list is a Grizzly 17 inch band saw.

Thanks

It’s a solid jointer and should serve you well. Mine 1182HW has been going strong for > 17 years now.

It’s funny. I see those craftsman jointers for $200 and ones like the 1182 for the same price.

Good luck with your jointer. I live in that general area and prices on used equipment are higher than most…....For this area it seems like a fair price. If you find a band saw in decent shape jump on it. Seems like used band saws in the Harrisburg, PA region are in high demand.
