I have had the Jet 6” jointer for more than 10 years now and I really like it, I wouldn’t mind having the 8” jointer for flattening the faces but the 6” works great for me and it fits the space much better than the 8”. I have an older delta 12” planer and that is the one I always really needed to be wider. After glueing wide panels together I always wanted to run them through the planer lightly. I solved the problem by getting a Jet 16/32 drum sander and now the planer is plenty wide enough and if I want to smooth a panel or door I just run it through the drum sander. The best part is that it is on wheels and just rolls out of the way.
