8 inch Powermatic from CL

I found a 8 inch Powermatic Jointer on CL for $450. The model number is 60. It looks fairly old. Does anyone have any advice it this is a good buy. Thanks

If it works, grab it and run. $450 is a good price for any 8 inch jointer

I need cheaper hobby

Should be a great jointer. I have a PM 50. The 6" version.

Definitely a good buy if it's in good shape. I also have the PM 6", Model 54a and would love to have an 8". There is one that is in decent to good shape here in town and the guy wants $1,200 for it - no thanks!

Even if it doesn't work grab it and run if it's repairable.
