As far as the jointer I would recommend the Hammer 31, this one is my third jointer so far, been working with it for the past couple years and it performs flawlessly. It is a 12” model and the price is comparable to a good quality jointer fitted with a spiral cutterhead.
For the bandsaw, if your budget allows, Powermatic’s PM1800 is my choice. I have never had second thoughts about this purchase, it works perfectly, I own a couple 14” Jet and Powermatic bandsaws, this is the first heavy 18” for me and was purchased with a lot of research behind and experience with Powermatic tools.
Just my 2cents.
