I think the most important consideration is the length of the bed. There are a few 8” options that don’t require 220v service and there are a few “long bed” 6” jointers that can give you some additional length, but those of the 8” variety, if space isn’t much of a factor, would probably serve you better in the long run. Finding an 8” jointer for less than $300 bucks might be the hard part.

You never need the extra capacity of any tool, until you do.
