Re: Considering a jointer
I do my jointing with a Stanley #8 handplane. Mostly because the 6" Rockwell/Delta jointer I have is stuck in the corner, waiting for me to get around to rehabbing it.
Running a 220V outlet is pretty dirt simple, if you have the space in your main panel for it. I've run several 220V circuits in my shop, including a dedicated 50 Amp circuit for an arc welder. It's really not any different, in terms of technical difficulty, than running a 110V outlet. Which is dirt simple.
By the same token, there are plenty of people doing more than merely passable woodworking using 110V contractor-grade saws.
