Bought some new (to me) machines

My neighbor was moving and had to sell some equipment. I bought a few things and want to ask you guys how I did. For $300, I bought a Jet JJ-6 Jointer, a Delta 22-560 Planer, and a Guardian Power BDM-58-5S Drill Press. The planer is next to new and the jointer and drill press need cleaned up really bad from sitting but are mechanically sound.

Sounds pretty good Bud,
Do you have any pics you can post? Not familiar with model numbers.

Nice! If you've never owned a planer or jointer, you'll wonder how you got by without them. You've just gained alot of capability.

FWIW, I had a 22-560 before I bought my 22-580. Nice machine! It had some aspects that I like better than the more expensive the cord holder and easily removable dust chute...I think the engineers took a nap when the bean counters released the final 580 design without their approval!

Heck, unless they are trashed, the jointer and planer for $300.00 is a good deal. I have heard a LOT of good things about the Delta Jointers (Except the Shopmaster bench top model)...

If you haven't owned a planer before, you will be amazed at how useful it is. With a some alternative methods you can get by without a jointer, but a planer is simply a must have...

I wish I knew anything at all about the drill press. But I don't... As long as it works wel.. you got a bonus.

Interested in my woodworking, workshop and whatnot? See, want to see my other interests such as hunting, fishing, off roading, and camping? See
