    DJ 15 6" jointer?

    My local craigslist has a couple of these jointers for 450. What can anyone tell me about these machines? I have heard some love them and some hate them. What is the consensus here about the Delta DJ-15 6inch jointer?

    Good jointer for a 6". Long tables for the size. My first jointer was the DJ-20, bigger brother to the DJ-15 and it was a nice jointer.

    That is as good a 6" jointer as any that has been made....period....it is in every respect a 3/4 replica of the DJ20...Delta stopped making it a number of years ago...and replaced it with less well made less costly 6" jointers....Norm used one for five years on NYW and replaced it with the DJ20 (Norm would not have used it for five seasons if it was not a good tool)...it has a 3/4 hp motor that will handle any work placed upon it...if you can be happy with a 6" or if its smaller footprint works to your advantage for premium shop space then this deal sounds promising (DJ15s originally sold for about $1100-$1200).
