In theory it could work. There are small Sand-Flee machines that look very similar to a miniature jointer.

My personal preference is to avoid creating the tearout in the first place.
For instance…

Version 1. Joint and plane with straight knives, some tearout happens, drum sand to remove tearout, ROS to prepare for finish.

Version 2. Joint and plane with helical cutter, virtually no tearout, ROS to prepare for finish.

Basically it helps me skip a step.
In the long run, a helical head (with 4-sided carbide cutters) is actuallt saving me money vs. HSS straight knives.
