The 37-205/207’s were workhorses, sold basically unchanged for decades, and will last several lifetimes. The cast iron base (37-205) is more desirable than the flare leg stand, but the jointer itself is the same. As for worth – that depends a lot on condition and location. At the very least, figure about $50 on top of purchase price for new bearings and a belt. And unless you have a cracked cast iron part (and even then most likely), parts are available from many places, including your local hardware store.
