The lack of decent used Jointers in my area has started making me a little desperate. So I’m interested in this JET JJ-6CS, but the guy is asking 600, which seems really pricey. What would you offer on this jointer?

$600 is way too high for that machine. If I was in the market for a 6” jointer, I’d be offering $200 – $250 for that one.

What tools sell for obviously varies by region, but Im with John on the price. Here in MN that would probably be about a $250 jointer on craigslist. At $600, I think you can probably get a brand new grizzly delivered to your door.

+1 on the two above comments. and that jointer is almost ancient! there’s a guy who has obviously drunk the jet kool aid.

If he bought it new he paid about $400 for it about 15 years ago. if it’s in really good shape with sharp knives I think he can get $300.

$250 would be my absolute top dollar. it you are willing to spend that much then I would go for a long bed 6” or an 8” from grizzly.

After checking out the Grizzly website I’ve decided to go with a new Grizz 6 inch, have it delivered and still save nearly a hundred bucks! Now I just need to start saving a little cash.

$600 for a used 6” jointer tells me the seller would rather keep it…..I see no reason to interfere with their wishes!
