Found this jointer online. It comes with an extra set of knives. What would be a reasonable deal for this. The owner said it is 10 years old, but only has about 20 hours on it.

He said his bottom line is $350. That seems like a good deal. It is about 120 miles from me. I think it is worth the drive to check it out.

At that price, you better be on the road right now. He could easily get twice that.

I would think that this would be a good deal assuming everything works and that the tables and fence is flat.

Unless there is some serious problem with the jointer, that is a great price. I have the same model built in 1999. I bought it used about five years ago and it has worked fine for me.

If I heard of a deal like that I’d rip the back pocket of my pants off trying to get my wallet out. It’s a steal at that price.

Talked to the seller extensively. Sounds like he has a smaller Jet Jointer that he uses nearly all of the time, making this one expendable. Going to pick it up tomorrow. Will post pictures when I get it back home. Thank you for all of the replies.
