I saw an ad on Craigslist for a Powerline 6” jointer, but I don’t know anything about them. Does this look like a decent deal?

My first impresions:
No guard system, although the hole is there.
It is actually an overgrown benchtop with the motor down below.
I don’t like that fence system, I’ve had problems with those years ago.
No chip exhaust that I saw.
Where to buy the knives?

With all that, if the guy comes down to say, $150, I’d probably still take a hard look.

$200 seems high to me. Depends on what’s available around your location. Unless they are a very unusual size, after market knives shouldn’t be a problem. That looks like a quite old Taiwan jointer.

no guard, no dust chute, needs cleaned, and a knock off to boot. around here knife sharpening is around $.50-$1 an inch. I wouldn’t go much more than $100 IMO

Looks like a HF jointer. $200 is too much for that one IMO.
