Jointer choice decision

There's a delta jt360 jointer for 275 and a grizzly g0452 for 300 on craigslist. Which would you prefer and why. I'm torn heavily at the moment.

Tough choice. Delta is better quality but if it needed fixin, Delta could care less about you. Parts can be very difficult to get.

Yes, several years ago Delta has pretty much suspended selling parts for most everything they sell.

Ive got that model grizzly, it's a solid tool. Ive not had any issues with mine, so I feel pretty safe in saying it's good buy. Can't comment on the Delta though

I need cheaper hobby
