Another vote for the jointer…I have a DeWalt 735 and it does a fantastic job. For the money you can go wrong. That said, it, like every planer I have ever used, will not take cup out of boards. A nice jointer is much more useful in my opinion. You will be gluing a lot of boards together to make panels so they don’t warp and you can face joint the boards before you glue them up to get the cup and warp out and have nice flat square wood to work with. A planer will make wood to a certain thickness, it will not take out the warp or cup.
I have used and liked the DeWalt table saws, they work just fine.

The jobsite saws have much less working area in front of the blade…..

Knotscott, could you please tell us what the advantage of having a longer landing zone in front of the blade is? What does this do for you? Thanks for any info!!!!!
