As I understand it the asking price of $250 for the Makita 2012NB is pretty much spot on while the asking price of $450 for the Jet JJ-6CSX is way off the mark.
I don’t want to insult the guy but I am prepared to offer $500 for the both of them which is almost half of what he seems to want for the jointer.
So a couple of questions:
I am just getting started in this hobby and just have started to recognize the utility of a jointer and a planer. It may be that I would be better served to wait until I have a pressing need for such tools. I’ve already struggled with wood warping in storage and a few plans I’m looking at attempting to build are going to require some specifically dimensioned and perfectly butted pieces of lumber. Is it appropriate to even be considering this degree of purchase at this stage of my journey? I should note that I do have a very basic table saw and that space is at a very high premium in my shop. In fact, the vast majority of work I do involves lugging tools and materials upstairs and out onto my carport. Dust collection will definitely be an issue as I don’t foresee my lugging the jointer up and downstairs as it specs at ~140lbs.
