After purchasing a TS from a fellow LJ member, I have been on the hunt for a planer and jointer. I finally found both for sale on CL. I picked them up this morning. After seeing them run and perform, I made the deal. Neither are new, but both are in great shape and seem to work great. What I got was:
Ridgid 13002 planer (the original replacement blades were still in the case under the outfeed table, coated in oil and like new, so a little bonus there).
Jet JJ-6CSX Jointer with mobile base. Blades are showing signs of wear, but haven’t been reversed, so it has that going for it. This thing is super quiet and smooth running.
I gave $375 for the pair. Both could use a good cleaning which will happen as soon as this latest weather nightmare is over. I’ll post some pics once they are cleaned up. There is no rust at all, just lots of dust from use.
Any advice on what I should look out for or anything special I should do during the cleaning phase?
