Thanks for all the info. I called the seller and passed on it. While at a woodworkers yard sale today I met another shopper who overheard my dilemma. He has a Ridgid 6” jointer for $200. I may get that. It, too, has a 46” length and hand wheels for the table adjustments.

I just need it to square up and slightly reduce the dimension on 2” x 4” western red cedar planks for kayak paddles. If I ever need anything better I can always get a better machine.

Anything wrong with a $200 Ridgid planer? He says that he has set it up and shimmed the tables and all is perfectly flat, square, and true. It sounded like he knew what he was talking about.
