Well, my neighbor and I went and looked at the the two tools and I ended up getting the whole shooting match for 200.00. The band saw is in great shape, no excessive vibration, tires look good, huge table. We had to do a lot of experimenting to figure out how to get the jointer/planer to work. The old guy had forgotten how to use it and didn't have the manual anymore. Finally figured out how everything works on it. Kind of interesting how you use the different functions: large table on top for jointing up to 8" wide boards. You loosen lock pins, flip the fence and top over, and use a handcrank to set the planing height. It has a chain underneath that raises the bed at four points, and it adjusts very finely. You feed stock in the opposite direction from jointing since you are now moving the material under the cutter drum instead of on top. Its modern enough that it has the lock style safety switch, but not so recent to have cheap parts. The lock pins, etc. are all heavily machined. Also came with an extra set of blades and some molding cutters. Its heavy!!! I think I did pretty well on the deal.
