Going down to look at an older Jet 6” jointer jj-6csx tomorrow morning. It’s the old blue color so I figure that’s a good 10+ years old? I just talked to the guy and it came out of his dad’s garage hobby shop so supposedly has very little use. I asked about bearings, blades, belts, and rust – he said none of it should be a problem except for some minor surface rust on the table and fence. Assuming it’s in good shape, his asking price of $300 seems fair to me.
The new jointers I have been look at are the Grizzly G0654 and the Ridgid JP0610. If I have to put any money at all into that Jet, it makes more sense to me to get one of the new ones with a warranty, but if it’s $300, sharpen blades, and start jointing – then the Jet seems like the deal.
