A couple of weeks ago I asked for any advice as I was thinking of getting a
combined planer thicknesser. Well just to show that I listened, I didn't get
a combined unit but went to a tool show here in UK and bought myself a 13"
portable thicknesser and a separate 6" jointer. I also got a little carried
away and bought a bandsaw, a dust extractor and a spare set of blades for
everything. The show prices were below normal catalogue ones to the extent
that I virtually got the bandsaw for free. All bought from Axminster Tools,
No connection etc. So far all is working well and I am a happy worker.
Thanks to those who replied with advice, it was certainly appreciated and

I did something similar and bought NuTool kit. The thicknesser failed
as soon as I turned it on, but the planer is a little beauty. As luck
would have it, I have just come across a combination tool (very like
ShopSmith) which has a very solid 6" planer on a cast iron bed, so the
planer has to go, probably on ebay.
