    I guess it depends on condition and savings. New $1000 tool here adds another $100 in tax. Like new with no tax, maybe. Supply and demand in the local market will determine the price. I...

    why would one spring joint 3/32" stock? My jointer is dialed in, no need to ever spring joint a board, certainly not veneer. How would you put enough clamp pressure on to close a spring joint?
