I also use the jointer more often than the planer since I like to edge joint boards on it. Overall I think the jointer planer are two great machines to have.

Yes this^^^^^

So many uses that are NOT dimensioning wood from rough. If you resaw, you will likely rejoint a face after running it through the BS, many times after both router, and shaper runs I have trued up an edge on the jointer. There are days I use the jointer more than any other tool. Indispensable since I owned my first one. I just shake my head when I see these threads. I have no reference points against having one.

Another use I get is when i rip on the tablesaw and the piece is a hair too big. My jointer can take off a 1/64” no problem, where i wouldn’t try on the TS.
