I would pass. I see 8” jointers for $200-$300 all the time. Only way I would go higher for a 8” jointer would be if it had 5 HP motor and a Byrd head with a tossed in dust collector, and a bag of skittles.
I seriously wouldn’t go over $300 for this machine. It’s a standard dovetailed ways straight blade 8” jointer probably from the 2001 era of jointers. For reference, I bought my GeeTech 8” jointer of the same class as this Grizzly for $50 at an auction.
I love how that post says jointer with handwheels! That’s like saying “this car I am selling has a steering wheel!”. And the vacuum system? I see a hose. No dust collector. Hmm..maybe he is asking for $600 because there is a dust collector outside of the picture and he forgot to mention that. Even then, a dust collector is $150 for new.
