If the equipment is in good shape, I think half the price of new is in the ballpark. Ultimately, you have to decide what you’re willing to pay. It sounds like you think it’s worthwhile. If this is the equipment you’re looking for (no significant compromises) I’d go for it.

You can always check out Grizzly; frequently you can get a lot more machine for your money. You’re paying a premium for Powermatic. Only you can decide if it’s worth it. I had a horrible experience with them with an 8” jointer, but it ultimately worked out OK. My Powermatic bandsaw and mortiser were great from day one.

Thanks for the input. I have no issues with grizzly, my tablesaw is a Grizzly. Unfortunately Grizzly/shopfox is FRESH OUT of 8 inch jointer’s and do not know when more will be available. Best guess from customer service is sometime around March, but even that is not confirmed. Unfortunately – i am not that patient!
