Jointer, as the name indicates, is a tool that aims at producing flat surfaces over boards before you join them in edge-to-edge fashion over wider boards. Jointers are also known as flat top/ buzzer, surface planer, or planer in some countries. It is a type of woodworking machine that helps flatten the surface over the board’s length. Jointer operates over narrowly edged boards so that they can be used as butt joints or for gluing within panels.
Moreover, jointers are also used for manufacturing rebates within finished timber. With various models of jointers available in the market, choosing the best one is a daunting task. So let us help you choose the most suitable one!
