    Planer/Jointer vs Thicknesser, which one should I buy first?

    FFX have some coming in tomorrow, so they should get released for delivery for Wednesday at the earliest I have been told. I tried ITS, but they dont seem to have a clue when they are having them in stock.

    Planer/Jointer vs Thicknesser, which one should I buy first?

    That is beautiful, thank you for your imput, I have managed to get a new HC260 on order for delivery hopefully the end of next week. I love this board!

    Planer/Jointer vs Thicknesser, which one should I buy first?

    I can't believe how hard it is to get a planer thicknesser in the UK for a reasonable price or even a brand new Metabo HC260. All used units are going for well over £500 and there is no new stock anywhere that I can find. Starting to consider the benchtop option for a surfacer/jointer then...

    Planer/Jointer vs Thicknesser, which one should I buy first?

    And to add (from a begineers view), it comes across as you get much more for you money too, much more capcity for the price. But, what is the point of planing more wood to a shittier standard one would question, I guess it would have its advantages in certain situations.

    Planer/Jointer vs Thicknesser, which one should I buy first?

    I love this! Thank you for reminding me of this scene! Back to the topic at hand though, I was simply thinking for the future, the thought of putting a shelix cutter head on that dewalt any time soon would be border-line idiotic. I was thinking in the future, if I wanted a better quality output...

    Planer/Jointer vs Thicknesser, which one should I buy first?

    Looks like I'm settled on purchasing the following to allow me to make some end grain cutting boards, I do already have a mitre saw and a table saw to use; a Metabo HC260 being used mainly for a jointer/surfacer, building my own thickness drum sander OR a router sled with a surfacing bit to...

    Planer/Jointer vs Thicknesser, which one should I buy first?

    Looking at options myself still, the only reason I said the dewalt one is I know you can upgrade to the shelix cutting head on the dewalt, not looked for the metabo shelix option yet. Going this route (the metabo thicknesser and a benchtop planer) will be around the 450-500 mark, where im...

    Planer/Jointer vs Thicknesser, which one should I buy first?

    Just a shower thought from this morning, I'm wonding what the quality of the benchtop planers are and then getting a DW733 due to its increased capacity to thickness for the edge grain boards.

    Planer/Jointer vs Thicknesser, which one should I buy first?

    I would love to go higher than 260, but I only just have the money for the 260, after convincing myself its worth the money. Looks like I will be surface finishing them on a router and sander for the boards larger than 260.

    Planer/Jointer vs Thicknesser, which one should I buy first?

    What is your situation on used tools, how much would you pay for a used 260 machine that is in a halfway decent condition as you describe it? What is that brand new tool warrenty worth to you? I understand this is simply an opinion and everyone's opinion will differ. Just curious to understand...

    Planer/Jointer vs Thicknesser, which one should I buy first?

    Thank you @recipio, I will keep an eye out for one on my searches. I completely understand @Trevanion, thank you. I'm just aware that with a little work you can surface in a jointer. But come to think of it, its probably easier to thickness a piece of timber on a jointer than it is to joint a...

    Planer/Jointer vs Thicknesser, which one should I buy first?

    Thank you Ian, entirely possible on the right machine then, the level of machinery i'm looking at for my price point is probably not worth trying it. I'm happy to run through a router/drum sander/belt sander then a RO sander, no issues there for me. I'm looking at the used market for a...

    Planer/Jointer vs Thicknesser, which one should I buy first?

    Thank you @ScaredyCat - Like I mentioned above, I wasn't planning on running the entire board through, It was simply for stock manipulation. Thank you for point it out though, safety is the number 1 concern for all of us here, its nice to see. My understanding is a drum sander or router...

    Planer/Jointer vs Thicknesser, which one should I buy first?

    I would like to keep it below £400 if possible. Which is why im looking at the used market. I too have to load anything into a hatchback if I needed to move it, my floor space is at a premium right now as I only have a small shed to work out of at the moment. Currently looking at a used Metabo...

    Planer/Jointer vs Thicknesser, which one should I buy first?

    Do you have any other models that you could recommend or are these "260" models across the various brands a good starting point? I've start my search for a Metabo/Elektra one already. I'm not too inclinded to run the whole board through a thicknesser as I'm aware of the splintering that could...

    Planer/Jointer vs Thicknesser, which one should I buy first?

    Hi all, Looking for a little advise on if I should purchase a planer/jointer first or a thicknesser? I'm looking to make some cutting boards, mainly end grain to start with but will be the odd edge grain too and I'm just starting to equip a little home shop, so far I have a DeWalt DW745 Table...
