I had an old craftsman jointer and hated it. Lousy fence, out feed table fixed. Some only had 1/2hp motors that is undersized, you should have at least 1hp IMO. I sold it for $100 and it had a stand. I then bought a 6” older Delta 1hp and it was a world of difference better. Really no problems with the Delta, however a MiniMax combo 13” showed up (Chicago CL) for $750. Was able to sell the Delta for what I paid for it. I could have gotten by with the Delta, but bigger is always better. To get anything used decent it will cost you around $250+ IMO. I don’t have any Grizzly tools, but people seem to like them.
