Similar (More or Less): jointer plane

A (power) jointer is used for straightening the narrow sides of wooden boards which is necessary for panel glue-ups and some kinds of joinery.

Without a jointer, these tasks can be achieved with a plane (ideally a long-bodied jointer plane) or a special jig for the table saw.

There are combination jointer/planers which might be interesting to us as we could save valuable space!
