I’ve been out of the loop with a new job and getting the house into shape and am finally able to start looking into the shop (still need to paint and tile, some). I’m now in Colorado Springs and needing advice.
I’ve been watching locally for a used jointer for my shop, haven’t owned a good one so in need of advice. I am looking for a good long bed 6” or 8” to replace the 4” wanna-be. I’ve been reading up on some reviews adn am open to most builds (Jet, PM, Grizz etc). Unless there is a really good deal on a new I think I am going with a used one. I have been comparing some of asking prices of used with Grizzly new (seem to be the most ‘economical’) and sometimes the Grizzly is winning out. I don’t want to spend more than $400, $500 for a gem, for a used (is that reasonable?)
I saw this ad for a Jet 6” and wanted to know, is it a good deal / what’s a fair price? what should I look for? any previous owners?
I also came across these two as a comparison. I’m willing to drive a bit if needed.
thanks for any advice you have.
