I dissagree that jointing with a router or TS will burn them out quicker. It’s just using the tool for what it was designed to do. If it does, you should re-evalueate where you shop for tools :). I could make the same arguement and say because I don’t have a jointer, that is one less thing in my shop to potentially break, and to buy replacement knives for.

I’d also disagree a tad on a “decent” used jointer for 50 to 100$. I would say the entry point (aside from a once in a lifetime deal) is around 150 to 200 for an old 6” delta in decent shape.
