  1. Jointer

    A jointer is a woodworking machine used to produce a flat surface along a board's length. The jointer derives its name from its primary function of producing flat edges on boards prior to joining them edge-to-edge to produce wider boards. The use of this term probably arises from the name of a type of hand plane, the jointer plane, which is also used primarily for this purpose.
