Has anyone seen or better yet bought on of these 12” jointer/planers?

I would be interested in just the jointer part if it were any good.

About $1900 is a good price for a 12” jointer.

I haven’t used the Jet jointer/planer before. But I have used a Felder 12 inch jointer/planer and it was beautiful to use. The only things is that you really need to work in order. Do all your jointing first and then do your planning. Because lifting and changing the settings gets to be a pain.

What ever you get, you want a spiral head cutter. It’s the cat’s meow.

Gary,

A guy at my wife’s work just bought one. I’ll ask his impressions of the machine. I too am interested in these cheaper combo machines.

Chris,

Sorry, I don’t know how I missed it.
