Reliant 6" jointers sold for about $300 when new, so in great shape now I wouldn't spend more than $150 for one, and it would have to be in almost like new condition for that. I own a couple of Reliant tools, a 1" belt sander and a 16" band saw, bought back when I was raising 4 kids and had very little extra money to spend on tools. They are very much the quality of Harbor Freight and I don't expect either of them to survive much longer. I've had to make several replacement parts for the band saw, and the motor on the belt sander is running very hot in just a few minutes of use. Save your money and buy a better tool than a Reliant.
