Hey everyone, just found this place while looking for reviews of a Planer/Jointer combo machine and have a question to anyone in the know.
I am a noob when it comes to these tools and am looking to get a J/P combo machine for small projects for me and also for my work and was wonder on what to get. I found a Makita 300mm 2030 combo machine for $500 but not sure what to look for, here is the craigslist post and was wondering if it’s a good deal. Everything I have read is that they are awesome machines that are built to last, just don’t know if being old I will run into problems. That is a reason I am looking at the 8” Jet combo since it is new. There is another Makita for $250 but it’s missing a roller and there are no pics so I assume it is pretty thrashed.
I will keep it at my bosses shop so space isn’t a big issue, the Makita looks like it is pretty long.
Any advice would be great.
