Re: Planers versus jointers

You're right ... and while I do have all those items on hand, I still wouldn't have taken on that job without the/a jointer.

A planer makes both sides parallel to each other, they do not flatten. A jointer flattens a side, then a planer can provide a second flat surface.

I kinda agree with you, in that you can live without a jointer if you have to, and if you are willing to fasten temporary pieces of known straight boards or other edges to run against the fence of the table saw. A little twist in flooring is not a big deal, it will be fastened down anyway,and T&G is even better.
