I would hold off on buying the planner and use that budget to invest in a better table saw. $1200 would get a new Grizzly on a mobile stand.

Normally, the planner and jointer go together as set. You can get by with just a planner by using a sled on the planner and a different sled on on the table saw to face rough cut lumber, but it is a major PIA. It also requires a tablesaw with a very good fence.

Of course this would limit you to sheet goods and S4S lumber for your projects, but you would have a good foundation (a cabinet tablesaw) to build on.
