I found this jointer on Craigslist but think he is asking to much as I found you could buy this for about $300. What you think.

If it’s really only used a few times that doesn’t seem like a bad deal to me assuming it doesn’t have problems.

I like my grizzly equipment and this jointer for $300 doesn’t seem like a bad price

Yeah but he is asking $375 for it and I found reviews for it saying they were buying them brand new for $300.

Cash talks. I had the same jointer and while it was good I quickly out grew it. If you have the room look for an 8” jointer. They are all over the place and at decent prices. If you are set on a 6” the Grizz was a good little jointer. I sold mine for $250. Used machinery usually starts at 50-60% of retail prices. I would take cash, wave it under their nose and see what happens. If they dont accept it, move on and find another one.
