Hard to pass up a real steal, isn't it?

I think it's a decent tool but is 400 bucks little much for a price?

It would make a great anchor (for a while).

You should be able to get a much better jointer than that for $400. I would think something in the 100 dollar range would be the max for that jointer.

Found you an awesome table saw to go with that, in case you want to upgrade there as well:

I paid $145 for this Jet 6" a couple months ago. And it came with a spare set of blades. So if that is any indication.... Now I got a heck of a deal. But look at the quality difference.

Either I'm really awesome as sarcasm, or you're all really bad at picking it up

I'm not getting rid of my grizzly for this lump of rust.

A haha or laugh face or something indicating humor instead if dragging people on thinking you actually purchased the garbage. I mean it can be cleaned up bit would have to be damn near free to justify the effort it needs.
