You mentioned your interested in a 8” jointer, but you didn’t say the length you wanted, only said not too big a foot print. Your going to sacrifice quality with some of the space saving models, such as the Jet #JJB-8BT 8”, $480. or the Jet #JJB-10BT 10”, $680. or the Rikon #25-010 10”, $1210. All available at Amazon w/free shipping… and all of these don’t have the best reviews…. You’ll probably be happier with a 8” with a minimum of 72” bed, if not 76” or 80” bed. Maybe add a extra room to your garage or make your garage longer, since you still want to park 2 cars in your 2 car garage with a woodshop in it. Sacrifices may be needed (park one car outside).
