I have the Jet JJp-12HH and I’m really impressed with it. I have a small garage, so trading in a 6 inch jointer and Ridgid planer for this was easy. Face jointing took me a while to adjust to since it has the Euro style guard, but now I like it, much safer! I expected the planer to be a bit of a compromise, but it is great. I think the fixed head and movable table is a better approach than the movable head like in the lunchbox planers. I get far less snipe with the Jet planer than I did with my Ridgid. Switching over is very easy, the entire top lifts up as one unit.

I have a lot of wide white oak, so this is perfect for me, but as SirIrb says if you don’t use many wide boards it may not be worth it unless you need the space.
