They re 2k new, sure, but again, jointers have very few moving parts, so provided the thing is made halfway competently, the PM60 copies are just as good as the original. I say this as someone who owns both a PM60 and a 90s Taiwan import. They re the same machine.

So I can just get an 8” Grizzly new and it’s essentially the same as this? A jointer is not even a must have for me since I have a planer I’ve been getting by with.

That may be true but I’d bet that one you get a stand alone jointer you won’t want to go back.
