Topic tags/keywords: jointer

A guy locally is selling this jointer and asking $400. It looks like it’s in pretty good shape (https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/2854532154584045), but $400 seems way too high. Just googling and it seems like used ones were selling for $200-250 years ago.

Does anyone know of a resource that shows what its new selling price was when Delta stopped making it?

link didn’t work for me, but $400 is the around the top end of 6” jointer pricing in my area.

unfortunately, pricing is all relative. how long has that jointer been listed? maybe offer him $300 and see what he says.

Strange. It still shows up when I go to look at it. At any rate, it appears to be in pretty good shape.

Fixed link – click here

$400 would be on the very top end of what it’s worth. Here is the photo from the ad:

Didn’t get to see it on the link, still says may be sold etc. Looked up a stock pic of the model, and I don’t think $400 is a very good price but much depends on your region. With a jointer there really isn’t anything that can be considered an accessory or an upgrade unless it had a helical head installed, which would make $400 a bargain. Pretty simple tools, if it’s not a long haul to go look at it, I’d go take a peek offer $250 and maybe settle for $300. For a new one, your best next alternate would be “the Ridgid 6 jointer for $600

I paid $600 for a used Delta 8” long bed two years ago near Chicago. I think $400 would be pushing the upper limit for that unless it has a helical head.

I got one of these used off Craigslist quite a while back – but without the mobile base. If I recall, I paid $275 for it.

That jointer was $500ish back in the day. I almost bought one but a 12” fell into my lap. Was a Taiwanese unit of good quality.

There is an identical one in ATL for 325 in as good or better shape.

The owner of the TX one doesn’t really understand dust collection though. That chute is one of the dumbest designs I’ve seen.
