Hi everyone I could get this jointer on ebay
What do you think its value is? I realize I may need to replace the motor
with a single phase motor, but otherwise what do you all think?
Only if he likes old iron, does not have to ship it, and has a motor lying
Freight will run $100, a motor another $100, runs the price up to $350, plus
the time to rewire, new switch, and clean up. Not sure if it goes for good
deal status any more with a open stand Jet for ~$400, closed stand for
~$500. Did ok, but not great in my book.
It may be better quality than what you can buy in the sub $500 range, but
most of us would be plenty happy with a Grizzly for the same money.
Deals like this is why I bought my Jet 6" closed stand jointer. I shopped
for a used machine 2-3 years. Everything I found was overpriced, and/or
It is hardly a gloat. If it turns out to have nothing more wrong with it
than a little surface rust it was a good buy. But, in all likelihood it
will be a nearly unusable POS. I have seen high school shop tools, but
never one they stopped using years ago but didn't bother to try to sell.
It is a gamble, and I don't think it was a good one.
