I found a jointer on CL that is listed as a Ram-Machinery 6” Hand Jointer Model 046. Is it worth $100? Will I be able to find parts?

I usually shy away from off brand tools, for the same reason you mentioned – parts availability.
That said, I have never needed parts for my Jet or Delta jointers. Blades are the main replacement item, and those are widely available.

If you don’t own a jointer, and this one is square, the very worst thing that can happen is you can relist it at a later date for the same money…
