Around here a 6” straight blade Jet was sold for $575 and a Powermatic 6” was sold around $700. I looked at both of them and they were in great condition. Have not seen a Delta I would want yet, they seem to be old and worn when they come up.

The Jet/PM at 6 years should be close to 50% which would be $450/550. The two I looked at could be wiped down to look like they were 6 months old, so I would have been willing to pay their selling prices.

I passed on both, not b/c of price, b/c I would be the next guy selling them for an 8” later in the year.

No shipping, no tax, with a mobile cart and in great condition and you can check the tables for co-planer flatness before you accept it!? Sounds like a great deal to me.
