Pretty insane. Whats the cost on one of those?

My only concern is that since it’s a combo machine you’d want to have smaller version of one of those machines so that you didn’t have to switch back and forth with smaller stock. I’ve used a combo before and it can be a pain cranking that wheel up and down up and down.

Still better than my lunchbox planer and benchtop jointer

That is a monster. There is a sawmill near by that has something similar to it and has a diesel engine.

I could possibly lend you some of the money, how much were you looking at?

Sharing I think would be out of the question As I don’t think my hand truck would lift it.
Just the same I would expect there should be a lot of work around for it

Very cool. I love these guys. I’ve been following them on facebook for a long while. Their work is IMPECCABLE.

Nice guard on the jointer setup. Probably need to call that operator stumpy pretty soon.

I think if your wife loves you she will buy it for you. LOL

I agree with the Viking. No matter how slick the machine converts I would prefer to have separate ones.
I have yet to use all 16 inches of my jointer but I do love the 4 foot infeed and outfeed tables.

Hey, aren’t Vikings and Swedes natural enemies?

If she loved me that much I would marry her again, just kidding. Swedes were vikings too. If I had my choice I would go with one of those grizzly combo machines in a heartbeat to save space.

I had a very old 20” joiner for a few years. It was a real monster with a homemade fence that never really worked well. It nearly took my thumb off one day while we wrestled a heavy timber. I got rid of it after that.

Manhandling heavy stock is not something anyone should ever aspire to and furniture slabs of wild, hard-grained lumber can be very uncooperative.

In this case, you might consider thanking God for unanswered prayers.

If I drive 20 km, I can use a Watkin 24in over and under. Mostly I get by with a 16in over and under for rough stock and glued panels. You would be surprised how cheap that sort of stuff can go for second hand. Mine, a SCM 2000d, is 40 years old with a macho slot mortiser and I would be flat out getting $2500.

A guitar maker I know in Sydney has an 8 year old CNC he bought for $25,000, over $1000,000 new.
