Not to split hairs here other than to say that the “planer” as we know it derives from the hand plane…making a surface flat with a blade and a stable base. Turn your jointer upside down (not recommended) on a piece of wood and you are doing the same thing.

Well I can’t even pick up my planer up.

Actually I saw a video of what look like a Dewalt planer turned upside down and attached to some rails. You could flatten some slabs or something like that. Can’t find it now
