Don't know, but I like Inca or Powermatic 4" for home use.
They are especially nice since one person can pick them
up and carry them. If you are worried about 4" not being
wide enough, remember, you should never join pieces of wood
wider than 4"-6" anyway or they will be unstable.
Jointer Question for the day:
What is the proper sequence for jointing and planing a board
to make it FLAT? I spend every Wed at the local high school
wood shop and notice that very few people understand how to
properly use of a jointer and planer, or even what they are
trying to accomplish.
Hint: Planers just make things parallel.
