We very seldom joint an edge on a joiner. We made straight lining jigs to use on table saws. We’ve got several and even have some we use to straight line short to long face frames.

I bought a new jointer in 1994 and it still has the same knives in it..lack of use.

But, sometimes the jointer will do for us what a table saw won’t so we blow the dust off the jointer and use it.

We use to do a lot of sandblasted wood signs and had to glue up some wide and long sign blanks and the table saw worked best for straight lining the edges.
