It has absolutely no value whatsoever, and nice guy that I am, you can give it to me. Seriously, storing it may be a challenge (rust prevention) but if there is any way to hang onto it until you’re ready, I’d suggest that.

Which do you need more – the 20” jointer or the tools, materials, or vacation your could buy with your profit?

Thanks guys. I’m not hurting for cash at the moment so I think I’ll hold for now. Maybe this will push me to figure out a larger shop situation.

A 20” jointer sounds awesome

Honestly I would keep it. slather it with grease and sock it away. massive tools like this are really a nieche market, and unless you have the right buyer you may not get the price you would expect. I wanted & searched for a 15” planer for a long time. Everything that I found used was way over priced(700+), a turd, or sold instantly. I found a 20” and ended up getting it for a little over $600.

Have your say...
