THe Roybi is a portable and as such there are a lot of
comprimises. The beds are small. On longer warped boards it may
be difficult to get a straight edge. It is also noisey. THe one I
heard sounded more like a router. qq Re: Planer/joiner
From examination it seemed that
the Roybi is just a router motor in a small joiner.
Delta has a small 6 in. joiner that they have on sale now
for around $350. I would give it serious consideration.

I have the Delta and am very pleased with it. The tables are longer than the
Ryobi and the unit is MUCH quieter. I especially like the mechanism for
adjusting the in-feed table. It is very smooth and permits you to make
fine adjustments easily. All in all a nice machine.
Now if I only had a thickness planer ....
