Looks like it probably came from the same factory as some of the former Grizzly, Bridgewood, Sunhill, Jet, Woodtek, GI, and other Taiwanese imports. If so, it’s a well proven design, but seems a bit overpriced at $650. Looks to be in nice shape, but with no warranty or mobile base, I’d think $450-$550ish is more realistic. New Grizzly 8” jointers start at $825 ($975 shipped).

Price is high but they are good machines.

The company now goes by the name
KUFO = “King of UFO”

Ok. I couldn’t find much on it either but it does seem a little high for the price but looks sure nice.
