Kelly , that was essentially one of my solutions offered. I said to
take a rabbit off both sides though. ( because my jointer can only do
a max width of 3/4 inch for the rabbit.) Keep in mind that this only
works for boards just a bit wider than the jointer.
After rereading his question and the responses, without a doubt the
ONLY answer is GO BUY A NEW JOINTER!!! It's obvoius he was just
looking for help with justification.
Tim, go buy that new tool!!!

Sheesh! Take off the high spots with the jointer to get a rough level.
Half and half will even get you in the ballpark if you pay attention. As
easy as trying to get a rabbet on a twisted piece of crap on the tablesaw.
Can you say bind and kick? Of course you can.
If it's just cup versus twist, slide the fence to make narrow and reduce
either edge of the frown to take the pressure off the middle as you run it
through the PLANER. That's where the money should go.
Another idea, that might work - a router sled? I've seen them described
in a whole bunch of magazines. Good for flattening dining tables, bench
Get it reasonable, then push it thru the planner.
