Huh? What are you talking about? Biscuit-slot cutting machines?

I think he is referring to a younger that squares up adjacent faces.

$200 jointer might be worth it if its an old Jet or Grizzly thats been in someones possession for while. You get what you pay for usually though, and with quality you get to dial it in and not have to keep tweaking it every time you run something gnarly through it.. You might like something like this which i've used before: http://www.grizzly.com/products/6-x-28-Benchtop-Jointer/G0725?utm_campaign=zPage&utm_source=grizzly.com

Wood working stuff is often good to buy older, used stuff.

You can get parts and repair older stuff, and it won't fall apart.

Yea,  this is type of machine I'm looking at..

I feel like,  I'd probably need a jointer   and a thickness planar..


seems like for most --wood-- stuff,  they go hand in hand.

Jointers, like the one pictured above, usually work pretty well initially but aren't made for heavy use. If you need to surface or square a few smaller boards occasionally, that class of tool should work fine. If you plan to frequently joint anything over six feet long a more robust used tool may be a better choice. I have a cheap Delta that's similar to the Grizzly shown above that I sometime take to the job site; its light weight makes it handy. Just realize that it's not going to replace the 500 pound shop version.

Remember to keep your fingers out of the knives. It can dull the blades quickly. :)

Yeah if you're squaring up a bunch of rough stuff that would be the best.  Kurplop has good advice too.  Start watching craigslist
