Planer, jointer, router table from CL

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

I need cheaper hobby

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.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?

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 😁
