Hey Glen,
I used a 1.5 hp collector for quite a few years and it worked fine for one to two tools. Anything other than that it did not suck enough.

Last fall I installed an Oneida cyclone (3 HP) and I couldn’t be happier, I can run a few machines with their blast gates open and they all have great suction.

You need a fair amount to clear the chips from your jointer and planer, so if you plan on using them one at a time, I think they would work, but if you are running ductwork to each machine, then it won’t have the suction you need.
