The Nova F 520 X is a heavy duty, long bed 20” jointer designed to meet the needs of the most demanding environments. It features cast iron tables, tilting fence and breakthrough XYLENT technology. This technology gives an exacting finish while reducing ambient noise decibel output significantly.

All SCM Jointers use aged cast iron tables that are machine polished to the highest tolerances. These castings are ribbed to ensure maximum strength and to avoid problems with the tables warping or breaking during use. The longer tables ensure board straightness. The table is over 108” to make sure that the workpiece will be straight every time.

All SCM Jointers incorporate a parallelogram movement of the infeed and outfeed tables. This system has the table height adjustment through a system of four cams (one per corner of support) that pivot on a radius equal to the head radius. This radius pivot ensures that the table chip breaker remains in the correct position from the head. Some manufacturers use a wedge type movement which allows the table and chip breaker to move away from the head as it is adjusted for more removal. This will allow splintering and poor quality finish.

The Nova F 520 X comes with a 20” Xylent cutterhead block with 3 series of knives designed to significantly reduce to decibel levels during operation. Totaling 84 plates of 15 x 15 x 2.5 mm. These knives are 4 self-locking and self-centering screw knives. With each cutterhead you will also receive1 dynamometric key for the correct and safe use of the locking mechanism (think of a mini torque wrench). Additionally, you will receive two inserts for the dynamometric key.

The standard guard offered on SCM Jointers is a spring-type guard which always covers the unused portion of the knife. Other European style guards require the guard to be manually moved into place when the fence is readjusted. When processing thick wood, this does not cover the blade as completely.
