I was surfing around and found this

http://www.dynamitetoolco.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=JET-707400&gdftrk=gdfV2469_a_7c555_a_7c1883_a_7cJET_d_707400

What do you guys think of something like this? I can honestly say that I don’t usually have wood over 8” wide that I would need to plane, I would go so far as to say 4” is normal, and 6” sometimes.

I have been wanting both a planer and a jointer for a while, so if this could fill my needs it would be great, but I don’t want to throw money away by buying a machine that I won’t use because it is to much of a pain, or doesn’t work as advertised. So, give me your honest opinion :)

I have not used it. I read a really good review somewhere on this site about it though. The guy stated the crank arm would not do full rotations due to the feed plate, but I think that was when cutting at a very specific depth or a specific thickness of wood.

-- I started working with wood because of the biscuits.

I have been happy with mine but have not been living with it long enough to give a full review (Have not used it in planer mode yet. Also, it was cheaper on Amazon ($250 + free shipping)
