In the thread:
http://forum.canadianwoodworking.com...ed-is-underway, I said that if my workshed reorg did not work I would attempt to sell my jointer and planer and replace them with a combo machine.
I gave it a couple of months, but the place still seemed crowded. So, last week, I put the planer and jointer up for sale. They sold quickly and, this afternoon, the new owner and his dad came and picked them up. I organized things well and it only took us 20 minutes to get the machines our of the workshed and into the trailer. Her are some photos:

That frees up a whole lot of space:

I expect to purchase a combo jointer-planer within the next month and it will probably be a Hammer A3 31. It weighs close to 700 pounds, so I expect getting the jointer-planer into my workshed will not be as easy as removing the machines that it will be replacing.
