I guess i should’ve been a little more clear. Sorry about my vagueness.
The planer is needed now to clean the pallet wood for the flooring. I already have a router table that was given to me for a heat pump job i did. I found an old delta planer/jointer on cl for 50, Just needs a good cleaning I’d call it a jointer only but that’s how they called it. Anyway, going tomorrow to look @ it. If it don’t work out, I’ll use the table saw with jig to give a jointed( flat edge). The miter & nail gun(finish nailer are for my trim work & a few other small projects. As for the flooring, i think I’m glue & face screw( countersunk) & cover with wooden dowels to give a very old log cabin flooring look. Anyway, thanks for all the answers. I know it’s basic, but the reviews for the entry level cutech planer seem good enough for me to start. I can’t find any deals on planners within 100 miles of me. Did find a dewalt 735 for 450 but it looked very abused. The planer is the biggest, i may spend a bit more on it & hold off on others
