i m going to watch it for a few days to see if it sells. I m in no real rush to buy a jointer, since I d put either a drill press or bandsaw ahead of it in priority. Thanks all.

I would like to recommend, before you hand over cash for a used jointer raise the infeed table till it’s even with the outfeed do this by eye. Then sit your straight edge that you brought with you and check that it sits evenly on both tables.If you have to adjust the infeed again to bring them true do it.
You don’t want to see a droop in the table alingnment. Or a gap in the center.If it checks out proceed to the fence and see how flat it is along its length. These are the things that matter on a jointer everything else like knives and bearing and belts are easy to replace if you have a highschool education.:)
