Good deal Sailor,it looks to be in fairly good condition. Check the ways, if they are rusty maybe some rust eating solvent and some lube may work. If that doesn’t work you may have to take the tables off and clean the ways real good. Check the jibs first, make sure they loosen when the lock screws are loosened…more rust eater. A good straight edge long enough to across both tables is needed to check for parallelism. If they are not parallel then the cut will not be straight. Check the belts, they may need to be replace if dry rotted. The bearings should be ok since the jointer had not been used much. Jointers are great machines, simple in design and easy to work on, I’ve never owned a Grizzly but have had several jointers over the years. I had an old American 16” jointer I used in my pattern shop that I rebuilt and used fo many years. In my home shop I have a powermatic 8” jointer that I was quite impressed with. Good luck with your new jointer.
