One of the nicest small jointer/planer's I've seen is a model made by INCA.
It's a bit more expensive than your $1500 limit, but it's a whole lot
nicer in capabilities than most other combo units. (e.g. its got a whopping
10" jointer capacity). Don't buy one of the others until you look at this
baby. Big capacity is especially important if you're into furniture.

If you're really into low-budget, check out a jointer alone with the little
planer made by ryobi ($400 and liftable by one person). That little bugger
got good reviews in FWW. I've seen it in action, and it's a pretty good unit.
