Jointer purchase

Hello everyone,

I've been in the market for a jointer for a long time and finally have found one in my area for a pretty decent price I believe. Delta 6" Jointer with stand in excellent condition. Model number 37-190. Cast iron table measures 46 inches long and is fully adjustable. The fence is also cast iron and is 29 1/2" X 4 1/2". I've got him down to $225 for the item. Does anyone happen to have any input on to whether or not this is a good deal? Also, does anyone have any information/reviews on this particular model?


Thanks everyone

The price is good. It looks like it was well cared for. Just make sure its all the jointer you need. The jointer is a little too short and for my needs, I really need a 8" jointer. I bought a 6" jointer nearly 40 years ago and rather than replacing it I've been enduring a machine that's not right for my needs. Its easier to put up with something than upgrading something you have.

just be prepared for less than optimal dust collection with that chute as it's not easily attached to a dust collector.

there's a solution to every problem.....you just have to be willing to find it.

Looks to be a fair deal for both parties on a capable jointer if it checks out. Not a steal, but reasonable IMO.
