I have a chance to pick up the above jointer for $100.00 but don’t know much about it. The price sounds good and there’s some rust on the top, but that’s about all I know. Most of the Powermatic jointers I see are yellow, but this one is green. Is that because it is older?
Can anybody fill in the blanks for me? What to look for etc. Are there any inherent problems with those machines, or that model? What size motors come on this model, how many cutting knives does it have? These are some of my questions.
It doesn’t appear to be a table top model, but I could be wrong. I would appreciate your input. I want to jump on it if it’s as good a deal as I think, but I don’t want to get stung either.
