Hello! I’m attempting to purchase a used jointer. I found a Delta 6” bench top jointer (37-071) for $200. Sounds like the blades are still sharp, only used a handful of times, but there’s a light layer of rust that’s coating the fence and the plane surface. The seller said that he was able to lightly sand off the rust in a small area and doesn’t think it would be a problem, he’s just not been using it. Would anyone be able to help advise whether or not this is a good deal and a “safe” purchase with the rust?
