If you have the space separates are nice.

A big wide jointer is terrific on occasion but plenty of nice furniture has been made by people with only a 6” jointer, if that. In my part of the country the boards I can buy in many species aren t commonly wider than 8” so I could get by with that sized jointer.

That said, I have a 16” combo and like it a lot but that has to do with the high quality of the machine in general more than a need for such a wide jointer. I do have an extension table for it (Hammer may offer one) that makes it hella long on the outfeed side.

Thanks for the response. Which 16” combo did you go for, and how much/how long was the extension table?
