If you need a jointer to progress in your woodworking
it is a good deal if used ones are scarce in your area.
I’d grab it I were you and you don’t have a jointer
and need one. It will serve you far better than going

For 100 dollars, it’s worth it if it runs well. If the model number starts with a 113.xxxx it’s a USA built Emerson tool and those are well thought of.

I have the same jointer, A good entry level unit. I am looking forward to a Powermatic but until then this will get the job done. I learned to watch my tuning skills to get good results.
