Topic tags/keywords: question jointer

All i know is its “in good shape and works fine and theres nothign wrong with it” Its a older craftsman. Its heavy duty he said, weighs over 200 pounds. He was originally asking 70 for it. I offered 45 and he said he would take that.

Hi Brantley,

I have this same jointer that I recently purchased off of craigslist. I paid $110.00 for it. Mines in great shape, no rust, the cast is perfectly flat, and the blades cut through wood as if it’s butter. If yours is in similar condition I’d say you found a hell of a deal. Good luck with it.

Looks like a 6” Craftsman. Good deal, even if you have to buy a couple parts.
For $45, use it like you stole it.

Fixed outfeed table makes it a bit more difficult to get it setup when changing blades but they work fine once they are set up. I used on simlar for years before getting my 8” central machinery jointer.

Man you don’t get a lot of bang for $45 in this day and age.It seems that even a decent little hand planer will cost much more.You did very well.imho Alistair

IMO, both you and the seller walked away happy on this one.

Have your say...
