I have jointed long board but it is difficult when you are alone. In school we were taught to get a buddy to help “tail off” the board but these days I am alone more often. in-feed and out-feed tables or rollers would be the answer and those could make the process limitless I suppose…...if you could get them level. The shortest board that should be jointed is 12 inches according to the safety rules in most jointer manuals. I have had one board jerked from my hands in a jointer and it was scary. I was not remotely injured but it was a thin short board so I started believing those owner’s manuals.
