I saw this machine at the recent AWFS woodworking show in Las Vegas, and was very impressed.
Its two jointer tables lift up at once, making it very quick to change  over to planing mode. They also ride on hefty dovetailed ways.

My friends at Hammer USA asked me to tell you about a drawing they are having for a New Hammer A3-26 jointer / planer worth $3,000. I checked this machine out at AWFS Vegas, and loved it. I planer/jointer fits two serious milling machines in one small footprint, and gets you a wide jointer, which every serious woodworker needs, or at least wants!

Go to Hammer's Facebook page to sign up. Simply "like" the Hammer FB page and click on the link to the jointer/planer giveway.

I despise Facebook as much as anyone though and will not be giving my information away either. Pretty sad way for Hammer to give something away.

A poor muddle management PR decision.

Facebook is just a way to get to a large number of interested people - it looked like there were over 1600 people who were connected to Felder via Facebook

I agree it is not for everyone but Facebook is VERY popular

There are a number of drawings I've passed on because I don't care to join social media groups.
