I was on craigslist the other day and saw a post for a powermatic jointer for $350. Normally when I open these ads I see the old blue style. In this case it was a gold colored jointer Model 54 (not the 54A). . Called the guy and he told me it was built in 2000. He used it once in the few years he had it and he bought it used as well. I went and looked at it and everything looked real good. The blades where still very sharp no rust on the tables. We plugged it in and it ran smooth as silk. So… I bought it.
Got it home now and am looking forward to getting a base built for it and then checking all the square items on it. All in all I hope I did good, Just wondering if you guys think I did well too.
I talked to powermatic and all parts are available if I end up needing to fix anything so that’s a Plus.
