    Jointer for wood turning update

    Drill press conversation aside I did ask about the Jointer they had for sale. I could use it I suppose to put pc's together for turning other things.
    See Picture below............
    It is a 6" Delta ................$250 asking............not sure what is worth.......
    Thoughts? ..............thanks Dan

    I'd offer 100 no more

    I agree with Don. $250 is way too high. My Grizzly 6" jointer was just a little over $300 a few years ago when I bought it. I might be willing to go higher than $100 for the Craftsman drill press, but not for the jointer.

    I agree with Don.
    Mine might be the same model as the one you show only on a wood stand. I paid $50.00 at a garage sale. Great deal. When I bought it I actually didn't know what I would use it for. I don't use often but it saves the day, and project, when I do.
    Offer $100.0 if in good shape.

    If you are going to use dust collection now or in the future I don't think you'll be happy with that jointer.
