Doug, no question that long tables are easier to work with but this jointer is the perfect solution for people with limited space/small shops. It would be easy to take to a job site too. It performs better than my full sized 6" jointer; it is much quieter too. In addition to cleaner cuts it is easier to replace the inserts. A nail can ruin a jointer blade but odds are it would only damage one insert which could be quickly reversed or replaced to get you back in action in a minute or two.
