DC Ross Posted April 25, 2009 Report Share Posted April 25, 2009 Hey all, I'm going to be upgrading my shop soon, and I'm debating whether or not to get a new planer. I have a 12" that's okay, not great. Since I just bought a Jet 16-32 that I wasn't planning on getting just yet, now I'm not so sure I need a planer (I was planning on a 15"). I could definitely stand to save the money and the space. In lieu of using a planer, here's my thought to surface and square rough stock: face & edge joint the body halves, resaw to approximate thickness, run that new face on the jointer, glue the halves, then run the whole mess through the sander. Does anyone see an absolute need that I'm not thinking of for a planer? Thanks! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
