Topic tags/keywords: jointer powermatic 54a

Found a guy who is selling a Powermatic 54A Jointer for $700. He said he bought it in March and has only used it twice. What do you think? I can probably talk him down. Then I have to convince my wife. :)

Sounds steep to me for a used 6” jointer. Is there a warranty?

on Amazon for a grand, new. I think 5 or 6 would be a better deal.

Not sure my wife would even notice if a jointer turned up in my shop.

good question on the warranty. will ask. I think I can talk him down to $500. I have an old Jointer that I can never get tuned right. Maybe I should just look into fixing it up. To this point, it has given me nothing but frustration.
