Just to confuse the issue, you can build a 12” jointer using the cutting head from a lunchbox planer. Google “homemade jointer.” The guy did a really nice job. The one part I might change would be to use an induction motor rather than the planer’s universal. More power, more torque, more durable, less noise. You’d have to do some adapting for correct pulleys, but should’t be hard to do.

Being torn between philosophies ain’t for sissies.
