    this is a great book. it has all you need to know about jointers and planers. shows you how to decide which machine is right for you, how to use them and maintain them. it even shows you how to do various things like make raised panels with the jointer. very useful book if you are new to the woodworking field. just might teach you a few things even if you are not a newby. though not absolutly necessary but nice, this book has tons of high quality color photos which makes reading it that much more pleasent.

    I bought this book because I plan to buy a jointer/planer. I am not a professional but, in spite of my somewhat low level, the book did not give me much useful information. It is mostly a collection of trivialities, such as instructions for making a stand in mdf board, or 1 1/2 pages with ridiculous instructions on how to remove a motor (disconnect wires, remove bolts, remove belt, remove pulley if necessary…). There is no useful info on combined jointers/planers. Flowcharts on choice of jointers/planers seem useless. I do not recommend this book to anyone. The chapter on jointers and planers in Duginske’s book “Mastering Woodworking Machines” gives much more information in much less space.

    This is a really good book for beginners, which is what I am. Very well laid out, very well written. I highly recommend this book for anybody w/ a planner and jointer or anybody in the market for one.
