I’ve got a lead on a Powermatic jointer, table saw, and drill press. What do you guys think is a fair price for the three of them? I just want to make sure I am in the right ball park. Jointer is 8”.

I like Powermatic tools. The old ones were very well made. I have the same saw. I see them priced around 800. I’d say a fair price for all 3 would be $1200-1400, but I’d try to get them for $1000 or less.
Good luck.

Anything under 1400 is a great deal imo

You could go 2400-2800.00 if you had to and be able to sleep at night !

About $700 each. I could be wrong about the
drill press… I think some of them are sought-after
but I don’t know a lot about it. It could be
worth less.

I would say it depends on location and whether they’re single phase or 3 phase. Generally people have a harder time selling 3 phase so that can be used to lower the price considerably. I think Loren’s estimate is realistic and still a good deal for these machines. As a hobbyist these machines would never need to be upgraded. If they can’t be tested you can also take off a signif amount of money. He could also be selling TS blades, jigs that could also increase the value of these machines. You could always offer $1500 after seeing the machines and see what the seller’s counter is.

I would jump on those if I were you…I agree that anywhere around $1,500 would be a great deal.

If they are in good shape and electrical power details are right for you: TS 800, jointer 750, drill press 500/ package deal maybe 1900 for all three
