I look everywhere, And i dont buy them if they sell over $500. The other lucky factor, no one wanted to really take it out of the basement.. Luckily i found 2 suckers that helped me! I took it apart to make it easier. I dont think anyone else really thought of that. It is heavier than the old powermatic one i had last fall. That was 3 phase, rusty, and i sold tjat for $600.

This one has a nick in a couple blades, can they be sharpened?

Now it’s trashed…I’d get my money back then! ;-)

Actually…definitely. Or replaced for ~ $40 at Holbren, Hartville, Amazon, Grizzly, Rockler, Woodcraft, Infinity, etc.

Buy another set from Holbren, it’s worth it having spares and the aftermarket are usually better then the OEM.

I just ran the jointer! Not to bad! A lot of vibration of the wood and surface. I will have to used one a lot to get used to it! It did a really good job, especially for having some minor nicks.
