Been watching the local pennysavers & Craigslist for months for a jointer, always too much money or too far away, or too late. Bingo - 10 miles away, $150.00. Works like a charm....happy camper!

Nice looking old Grizzly. A great deal. :thumbsup:

10 miles is like next door.

Looks like the previous owner took very good care of the machine.

There's been a couple on CL local to me about like that. Both under $200. If I didn't have a newer 6" I'd have bought at least one of them by now.

That's an older Grizzly G1182HW, made in Taiwan in the same plant that the Jet, GI, Sunhill, Bridgewood, and others came from. Wood Magazine picked it #1 in a 6" jointer comparison over the Ridgid, Delta 37-190, Delta 37-195, Sunhill, Bridgewood, and Jet back in September 2000 IIRC. I bought mine in 2001 and it's been performing like new ever since. Original price was $297 plus $55 s/h. You got a great deal on a nice jointer that appears to be in really good shape. Enjoy!

FWIW, Loma Tools is still selling the former Sunhill CT-150 6" jointer with 56" extended beds for $250 plus ~ $100 s/h...brand new old stock with warranty. For those looking at new 6" floor jointers, it's a great deal on a very well proven tool.
