Hello all, thanks for your help in advance!
I finally was able to buy a planer over Christmas. I love it so far, but soon realized what I already had thought which was that a planer isn’t much good without a jointer! I had been flirting with buying a decent bench top jointer for budget and space reasons.
So my search began on craigslist. I just found a Delta x5 6inch jointer for $325. This is at the top end of what I had saved up. It is in pristine condition, it was just used for one cabinet job 5 years ago and the owner had kept it waxed but not used it.
Is this a good deal? Will I be happy with this jointer for some time? I am just a weekend warrior so it won’t get tons of use.
IF down the road I wanted to upgrade to the helical head is this something I could do on this model?
