A combination machine takes up much less space than the equivalent separate machines. This makes them popular with home hobbyist and workshops with limited space. Most combination machines set up time is increased when moving from one function to another and back again.
Multiple combination machines typically contains a sliding-table saw with a scoring blade, a shaper, a thicknesser, a jointer, and a mortiser. These machines generally have 3 motors, one for the table saw, one for the shaper, and one shared by the thickness planer/jointer and mortiser.
