I’m hesitant to suggest this, given the mixed reviews. But there are combo machines out there. For example the 12” JET is about $2000.

Now, this sounds like a lot of money but if you think about it, I bought a Dewalt lunchbox 735 and a Powermatic longbed 6”.
.
Planer $569.00

Jointer $1000

So I spent $1757 for the pair and they take up a good bit of room in my tiny shop for 6” and 13” capacity.
Just sayin.
