In this episode I go over how to use a jointer. The jointer I use is a grizzly bench top jointer thats mounted on a shop fox stand.

As far as the planer goes I have looked at some planers but its probably going to be a while. Even having a small bench top jointer like this makes a difference when you are building a project. I cant remember how many times I have cut dados with my router and the shelves of a book case wouldn’t go all the way in. The router would go up and down on high and low spots so the dados weren’t 1/4 deep across the bookcase. Which caused the dados to be 3/16 in some places. And thats a pretty big problem. Since I have gotten this jointer I havent had any problems like that. I hope it stays that way.
