I have acquired a floor model Jet joiner with a new house purchase. I want to sell it, but have no idea of its worth. Here are the details.
6” long bed joiner
3/4 hp
Model # JJ-6cs
Serial# 5034969
Bed length 3’-8”
Sits on a roller stand base

I have pictures on my iPhone, but don’t know how to add them

For comparison, I paid $600 for an 8” Delta long bed with spare blades two years ago. It mostly depends on your location. I am south of Chicago.

I bought a 6” delta jointer some years ago from a craigslist ad in Kentucky. I paid about $250 for it and I still use it today. The Jet model you have seems to be a bit of an upgrade from my delta, so I’d guess you could ask around $300 and see what happens. Of course, your location could impact what price you could get for it.

I take it the infeed and outfeed tables are ~3’8” each, not combined? Normally jointer bed length is spec’d for the combined (infeed + outfeed) bed length, unless specifically stated otherwise. There are benchtop 6” jointers with little more than 3’8” combined length. Your machine is much more desirable than those, assuming someone has the floor space.

Look on craigslist in your area to see what similar machines are listed at.

Thanks guys for the replies.

It is a floor model and the bed is a total of 3’-8”.

BTW, I’m in Michigan

I have the same Jointer, and mobile base. It’s a solid machine, and yours looks to be in good shape. I would think $300 would be a fair price if it’s mechanically sound. Your market may vary, I’m in the Pacific Northwest. Someone here bought one just like it in 2011 for $200 and declared it a steal, and yours looks to be in better condition.

It’s going to depend on your location. In northern VA here, that would probably go for about 4-500

I think the most your gonna get is about $50. In fact I’ll give you that right now, if you also ship it to NY at your expense! JK of course. (but serious).

I see that model all the time on my local craiglist and estate sales. Without the mobile base… at $300 they go fast. At $450 they sell eventually. There’s one currently on my CL at $900 that’s been there for a few months. I think that’s more than they sold new.

Depends on your local market, but with the mobile base and nice condition, I’d put in up for $450 and take anything higher than $350.

Thank you all for your input. After all the research I have gathered, I am going to put it on Craigslist for $400.00 and will take best offer. Just want it gone and in the hands of someone who will put it back into service.

Thanks again
