Found this local 6” jointer on craigslist for $100. What is it and is it worth $100 in working condition?

The seller says he thinks it may be Chicago Electric?

What size is the motor? Most bench top jointer by Delta go for over 100 used in my area.

I think as long as it runs, cuts, and all the adjustments work then it is worth it. It looks like they have added a mobile base, and most of those run $40.00 each by themselves.

Take the $100 with you and then offer 80 or 90 when you get there. If they balk, then give them the 100.

That’s the Harbour freight jointer, made in china, pretty heavy. Reg price around 280$. Good deal for 100$

I agree with the Central Macheinery (HARBOR FREIGHT)

Looks like the Harbor Freights have it. As for worth, have you tried it out yet? if it cuts smooth and true and you can get replacement parts, its well worth the 100 bucks. I’ve bought several tools from HF that didn’t cost very much, but paid me back 10 times what I paid for them and they still are part of my workshop.
