I just ordered a Hammer a3-41 jointer/planer. This was a BIG decision for me! A few of my friends have the Hammer J/P combo machines and one even has the Felder combo machine. I also stopped by the Felder/Hammer showroom when I was in Sacramento a few weeks ago. Of course this is a huge expense, but it was also tough for me to decide whether I really wanted a combo machine or if I should go with a really nice jointer and a separate planer.

Anyway, after much research and vacillation I finally made a decision!

I am interested to know how many other LJ s have pulled the plug on this one and if you have any tips for me.

Charlie, good choice. Excellent machine. I have the A3-31 with spiral head. The digital gauge is a must-have accessory. It has been very reliable for the past 5 years. (I also have a K3 and N4400 – both a built like a tank).
