I own the same Rigid jointer (albeit the older model). I am also a new woodworker, and I love the machine. Prefoms very well, set up is pretty intuitive, but knife changes are MUCH easier witha jig - although that's most any jointer I've found with the exception of the spiral heads. Surely any would suit you well. Only reason I ended up with mine was a good deal on the FB marketplace.
