Must be nice having an 8”. Perhaps one day I can sell my 6” and get an 8”.

Billy
I made the mistake of purchasing before purging. Not enough room.
Some needy LJ needs to make me an offer…....you never know…

Gary, I’ve got the same long jointer in my tiny shop. There’s just no good place for these rascals in a small shop. It sure is a nice jointer, though. Having said what I have, I wouldn’t turn down an 8”.

RONFINCH….what’s a 1000 miles between friends..lol. We could set up a delivery chain with LJ’s between you and me.
Bertha…..Having the 8” long bed AND this long bed is like having 2 sumo wrestlers fighting for the same space. ( I’m tired of rolliing this around getting it out of the way)

Gary, Now that is a crying shame, having to get shed of a nice piece of equipment like this. But I know what you mean as I have to move my 6” everyday. My dream shop has no mobile bases. lol And a FLAT floor. I hope you find a deserving home for this beauty.

I can imagine, Gary. Do you remember what the PM mobile cart set you back? Mine’s sitting on a home-brewed version and yours is much more handsome. Knowing PM, though, I bet it was expensive.

Great deal on the jointer. I can’t get it but still great. Not meaning to hijack but can someone tell me why PM has such a huge following? I mean compare to something like Delta, Jet, Laguna, etc.? I’m just curious and happy to hear responses via DM.

Al….I believe the base was $169. The cheapest I’ve found online is $151 plus shipping, so not much lower.

Chris…..They’re like Lays potato chips….you can’t have just one. I have three PMs and the quality is top notch, even their overseas products. The PM’s seem to hold their value more too.

Thanks Gary. I just wasn’t sure. That explains a lot! :)

Bently…I would keep it if space would allow just in case the 29 year old 8” Rockwell decides to take a crap on me. So far the old girl has performed flawlessly so time to let the PM go and gain some valuable floor space. The mileage on it is buildiing from rolling it around so much.

Also to SSMDad, they’re the high end of the medium end. Kind of the best stuff around until you get into the really premium machines like Martin, Altendorf, etc. The’re built rock solid, so they keep their fans. I prefer the older green ones to the newer yellow ones, but I only own the yellow currently.
