The New JET 15” helical head planer quickly and quietly transforms rough lumber into smooth boards. This machine means business with a powerful 3 HP motor combined with a helical cutterhead housing 48 staggered carbide quick-change knives. The innovative Precision Air Strut System (PASS™) provides consistent upward pressure on the cutterhead, reducing the chance of board snipe. The conveniently located two-speed gearbox allows for quick and easy feed rate adjustments while removing up to 1/8-inch material with each pass for a smooth finish. A large Precision cast-iron table and infeed/outfeed tables make this planer a beautiful addition to the shop.
