I have a 6 inch delta joiner that is in good shape and works well. I decided I don’t need 3 joiners,so one must go. this one is on a craftsman stand with a motor and switch.It runs very quiet and smooth. I live in ct. and can’t ship it. I think $200 is a fair price so feel free to let me know if your interested. I could even deliver it if its not to far.I just sharpened the knives and set them in and it cuts very nice. These older machines are made well. Not like the new stuff that are made cheep and sometimes a hassle to use. I would always prefer something older that needs some work than something new and over priced.

Looks pretty clean, $200 is probably fair depending on the market in your area. No doubt it would be worth more with an enclosed Delta base, but from a functionality standpoint would serve someone well.

Since I posted these pictures I’ve bolted it down and now all you need is a 4 inch pully and a belt and your good to go. I have seen so many tools for sale and the people don’t even bother to clean them up. So who would want to pay alot for something rusty with worn out bearings that they then have to referbish. I believe it’s better to do the work for you so you can just get to work. Hopefully I will get as much as I can for for a good machine.

YEAH THERE ARE SOME GOOD DEALS OUT THERE SOMETIMES. I PICKED UP A NICE BRIDGEWOOD 8 INCH JOINER FOR 500 BUCKS. THAT WAS A REAL FIND WHEN YOU CONSIDER YOU’LL PAY A THOUSAND OR TWO FOR A NEW MACHINE.

Also the one I have(the delta 6 in.) was made in the 50’s so its not made in china.the quality is much higher.
