IMO…the jointer should be next…you can’t make anything without being square, right? I picked up my SteelX 6” floor jointer from Grizzley on clearance for 269.00 with shipping and tax. It isn’t a Powermatic, but it does great job for me.

I do recommend a floor jointer over a benchtop because of weight, vibration, and size of stock that can be milled.

Besides a jointer is easier on a wallet than a band saw when you include all the accessories.
