Planer, jointer, router table from CL
 
1 Attachment(s)
Someone in my local area is selling an old Sears 6" jointer, a Freud router table with fence and a Delta planer for $150 I was wondering if this is a good deal. To me it sounds to good to be true any thoughts from anyone.
I attached a picture of the items hopefully the picture comes up.

Grab em and run. Looking at the one picture, non of them are the fantastic tools, but for $150 total you can do a lot worse

As far as I can tell from the small scale photo, the jointer looks to be the same one I have had for over 30 years. It alone is worth the $150.

If you don't have a jointer, planer, and router table, buy them.
They will get your woodworking moving along.
In the future, if you find a better machine at a good price, buy it an sell the one you are replacing.
That's the way I built my shop. No need or plans on replacing anymore. But then again..........!

The planer setup alone is probably worth $100-125 ($75-100 for the machine, $25 for the stand), that puts you into the jointer and router table at $25 a piece, so this is a very very good deal...if the router table includes the router it becomes a great deal

I have a PC 12" planer like the one pictured. It should have two detachable sheet metal infeed/out feed tables to go with it. You will need them.

As far as the tools being too good to be true, I am not sure that is a given. Woodworking tools are big things. Sometimes people just want them gone. The difference between spending a few weeks trying to sell them for more, milk every last dime from the sale, when more is only a couple hundred bucks more just might not be worth the aggravation.

His fire sale could be to your benefit. Good luck with your purchases.

I would jump on that if I only had $200 left in my bank account 😁
