Default My new 'toy'

I made a long journey yesterday to pick up this.

I don't know how I have managed so long without one like this. It planes beautifully and the finish is as smooth as silk. A very happy bunny.

Congrats, Alan. That looks like an 8". Is it?
Over here, we call 'em jointers. What's your term in the UK?
Anyhow, mine has become almost as indispensable as the table saw.

Thanks guys. It is an 8" width. I am very pleased as you can tell. Yes Gene I knew the machine was a jointer on your side of the pond. Over here they are known as a surface planer or an overhand planer. My only gripe with any of 'our' planers/jointers over here is the guard. By law they must be fitted with the 'Euro guard' where the wood must be fed under the guard and the hands lifted over the guard. I much prefer the 'pork chop' style guard you use over there. Oh well that is Health and safety for you.

Help this shop rookie out As I understand it on this side of the pond it is called a joiner cause its used to square and straighten a board so they can be glued and joined together. My question On boards under 3" why not use a tablesaw jig to rip a straight edge instead of a joiner?

Bill, joiners surface the flat side of the board as well as the edges.
