    Default Hammer Jointer/Planner combination ......

    Looking for a combo jointer/planner combination for home shop use. Stick with the Hammer brand or are others just as good ?

    I haven’t used the Hammer but own a MiniMax in a small pro shop.
    I would say buy the cutter head you prefer, otherwise the machines appear functionally equivalent.

    Hammer states:

    “The 3-knife automatic cutter-block is your *guarantee for superior planing results.”

    I don’t know what brand they use but my MiniMax has a Tersa head.
    I can’t say enough about Tersa- functionality is perfect.

    I have had a Minimax since about 1984. Works fine, but now and then I wish for longer jointer tables.
