Didn't last
I used this tool very little. In fact, in the 5 years I had it, it had no more than 4 hours of use. The good thing about it is it's an all in one machine.It did what I needed and I never over worked it. It could handle most lumber I used. But don't expect the thickness planer to give you accurate cuts because it won't. It's just not that accurate. You have to keep measuring over and over and over. Then last night I was making my last pass with a piece of 3/4 walnut and the motor slowly began losing power until it finally died.
I just think an expensive piece of equipment should last longer than 4-5 hours.

Compact, gets the job done
I have a smaller shop, so having a compact tool that an serve two purposes is very important. It fits under a cabinet well, but does not really have a good place to grab it, so I end up tipping the jointer to get my fingers under it.

dust chute broke on second use
worked fine the first time I used it. descent for what it is.

Second time I used it - the poorly designed dust chute threaded knobs impacted the cutting head and broke the plastic chute and probably damaged the cutting blades. Mind you - I did not change anything between the 1st and second uses...

Great for small shop and small jobs
If you are limited on space, this is the machine for you. I like that I can move it into the driveway with ease. That allows me more room in my small garage to go from the planer to the table saw.

Nice bang for the buck
You cannot compare this machine to full size single purpose equipment. For what it is and what it cost it is a great value. For home use with limited space this fills the need. It is easy to set up and use, small enough to keep out of the way and has the power to do the job.

More Than Meets My Expectations - I like it
Review of Jet 8" JJP-8BT Jointer/planer combo:

I like this little workhorse... It suits my needs.

Like many woodworkers I have a small shop (9 x 16'), and being retired, a small budget. I make wooden boxes so a small machine suits my needs and being a benchtop machine, I can move it around to use it where convenient. What I do require is a certain amount of precision. I knew that I couldn't afford a separate jointer and a planer. That would cost $700+ for each machine. The Jet JJP-8BT seemed a perfect match for me. So, I checked it out and read the reviews.

Boy, do the reviews vary - From one star to five! From a piece of "junk" to "love this combo". The Jet JJP-8BT, to me, was made for the "Joe homeowner" hobbyist or part-time, semi-professional such as myself. If you're working with small lengths of wood or working on an occasional project or two, then this machine serves a good purpose in your shop. Most reviews center around expectations, experience with such machines and technical know how.

I buy and dimension a lot of rough cut lumber to make my boxes. I also have a neighbor that owns a small sawmill. Until now, it has taken days to sand re-sawn wood to get the smoothness I need as I didn't have a jointer or planer... I think you see where I'm going.

My big concern before I bought this machine was whether it could be adjusted so that the in-feed and out-feed were co-planar. I had downloaded the manual and it showed no such adjustment. I read the reviews and it was one of the biggest complaints. But, the techies out there said there was a means to do this. I bought it.

I received the machine and mine WAS one of those that had a 1/16th of an inch dip in both the in-feed and out-feed tables towards the chipper head (but I was prepared for that). This made the knives high by that amount. I put a board through it right away as a test (is it good right out of the box), big snipes and a convex cut. But...Once properly adjusted (you can call the Jet technicians and get the photo/instructions on how to do this), the knives came into perfect adjustment and it definitely meets my expectations.

I ran a group of various types of cupped, warped and rough boards of different types of softwoods and hardwoods through it. I've had no problems what so ever. I did receive the unit missing the knife adjustment guage and the dust port had a knob that was broken off. I epoxied the knob, called Jet and the guage and new dust port are on the way. Jet has great technical people.

I worried about the combo just having a two knife cutter but at the rpms this runs at and taking small cuts with proper feed speed, I've had no problems... On the contrary, it has met my expectations or exceeded them. There were no nicked knives as others have found. And, the knives didn't clog with wood shavings... Probably because I connected it to my shop vac. Having the dust port on the machine is a must as it won't start without it being properly installed for each of the two operations, but you MUST use a vac if you don't want the cutter head to be bogged down with a lot of shavings.

A 30 inch deck is a space saver but not what you might be used to if you've been using a single unit jointer. I ran a couple of 6 ft boards through using a roller on the out-feed end and had no problem. My neighbor brought over a 4x4" 10' chunk of cedar that he had milled from the trunk of a tree. With him manning the out-feed end me at the in-feed, the planer was a champ. He was impressed. If I were to do that myself, I think I would add weight to the stand I have it bolted to.

I've had no problem planing 1/16" stock using an auxiliary bed to make the planer table thicker and even did a bit narrower board by double-sided taping it to a thicker board. It didn't do that great, but was worth the try. 1/16" is as much as I will ever ask it to do.

The pros are that when properly adjusted, this 8 inch jointer/planer combo will meet the expectations of those needing a small space saving machine that has the versatility to get the job done right and it meets the requirements of a machine of its type and intended use. It is not for the professional woodworker or for heavy usage. The con of this machine is the poorly written manual that doesn't give you all the info you will need to get this machine to work to your satisfaction. As with most inexpensive pieces of equipment, this is not an out of the box machine. You must put in a few minutes effort to get it to work maximumly.

I like this machine. It works better than I imagined for my situation. I would recommend it to others whole heartedly as long as they are aware of its limitations and are willing to take the 10 minutes to adjust it to their needs.
