Seen this on the Woodcraft site, here.
Anyone know anything about this? $330 bucks doesn’t seem bad for someone in the market for both. Other than the planer is only a 8”, but the jointer is 8” also.

Wow that looks like a nice get up there. I have been eying the 12” version of this puppy and have slowly been putting y money back for it.

yeah, that DOES look pretty interesting. I wonder how well it works. As a planer it IS narrow and as a jointer the fence is kind of short, but….?

They have 10” and 12” versions. The 10” sounds awsome. Correct me if I am wrong, but if you only have a 6” jointer what good is a 12” planer?

Straightpiped, the 12in planer would be very handy for planing a glue up of 2 6in sections. There are many times I would like a wider jointer, but I haven’t come across anything within reason to make me want bigger than my 13in planer.

I am curious about these machines mainly for the reduced footprint and the wide jointer bed.
