Guys’
What would a 1985 PM 60 8” jointer be worth? It is in good condition.

I can buy a Delta 8” with long beds for $400 so I would think in that range but let some of the other guys step up. We don’t have many PM tools available in my area.

It will depend a lot upon what machines cost in your area. If there is an abundance of people selling 8” jointers it will be less. A 1985 Powermatic machine is made in america and new enough that it might not have a lot of missing parts. I bought a 1960’s PM 60 for less then 400 at a school auction but considered it a steal. I usually see them going for 600 to 700. I am in Maryland.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the replies. Can I still get parts for this jointer?
