Topic tags/keywords: jointer question

Is this a decent jointer for $200??

6” Jointer with stand motor base

This is all I could find online
Mark 1 was a Taiwan made machinery brand that was imported and sold in your area by Tool Town. They were later rebranded Foremost and sold up until about 2 years ago. They are quite well made, the bandsaw and jointer were particularly nice.

For two hundred, how wrong could it be, and it’ll be gone by tomorrow night.

What Seattle is only about 2 days, well yeah of hard driving, but jeesh, a hunnert bux is a hunnert bux


Prices vary so much, where you are that could be a great deal.

I don’t see any rust and it looks like the infeed and outfeed tables are both adjustable. For $200 I say go for it, you can likely sell it for the same when it is time to upgrade.
