Knives aside worthwhile machine to upgrade to a shelix head?

Only you can answer that question. If it’s made in Taiwan, chances are it’s just as good as the others from Taiwan, which is pretty darn good! There’s not much going on with a jointer, if the castings are sound, tables flat, fence solid (and able to be squared to the bed), then sure it’s probably worth it – IF you face joint highly figured wood lol.
Otherwise buy a spare set or two of knives at $20-25ea and keep spares on hand ready to go.
