If you search on “drum sander plans”, you will see many free plans to make a drum sander. That would be, in effect, your jointer with a sanding head. Swapping out a jointer head for a sanding drum would not be very practical IMHO.

I’m with Papadan on skewing while jointing. I can’t skew my jointer head, obviously, but I can skew the board that I’m jointing. I do that every time the board that I’m jointing is narrow enough to allow me to skew on the jointer bed.
