Anyone have experience with this jointer, or an opinion of it? Used asking price is $300. The unit is the older/blue type, probably about 1998-ish in age.

I don’t know what condition it is in , but seems pricey for a 6” model of that vintage. All depends on what it looks and sounds like : ) Mobile base, extra knives, dust collection port,legged or cabinet stand, etc. ?

I have that exact jointer. I bought it used for $300 last year. It came on a mobile base. It has worked OK for me. I bought a 4 inch dust port for it since it didn’t have one. My HF dust collector has no problem keeping up with it.

I hope to change out the blades soon but I don’t know how. :-(

It’s a good jointer. Made in the same Taiwanese “Geetech” factory as the Griz 1182 series, Bridgewood, Sunhill, GI, Woodtek, and others. $300 isn’t too bad, but I’ve seen better deals. A new Sunhill with 56” beds (from the same factory that Jet was made in) is available for $250 plus ~ $100 estimated s/h.

I found a 1992 Model of Jet JJ-6CSX in a salvage building supply warehouse. The motor was fried and had lots of surface rust, but beds looked ok, cabinet was still in good condition. Beds had a lot of paint overspray and what appeared to be spray clearcoat. Blades were in fair condition- no nicks, just rusty. Got it for $75!
Bought a new 1.5HP motor from Tractor Supply on close out for $99, paid $50 for some sheet metal modification on the cabinet dut to larger motor and a few cans of paint.!
I think it will work out fine as soon as the dust collector cover arrives.

Mine looks exactly like the second picture KnotScott posted, mobile base and all.
