Details

JWP-208HH-1 helical head planer quickly and quietly transforms rough lumber into smooth boards, with a full 20 in. planing width. Its heavy-duty cast iron and steel construction keeps the workpiece steady and supported, while the conveniently located two-speed gear box allows for quick and easy feed rate adjustments. This machine means business with a powerful 5 HP induction motor combined with a helical insert cutterhead housing 92 staggered carbide knives. You'll appreciate the sets of three steel infeed and outfeed rollers to help prevent annoying snipe. A large cast-iron table with smooth-as-glass surface makes this planer a beautiful addition to the shop. And since planers kick up a lot of dust, we made dust collection easy with an exclusive angled 4 in. dust port to keep your hose out of the way.
Features:
  • Helical cutter head with indexable carbide inserts for a superior finish and quieter cut
  • Heavy-duty cast-iron and steel construction for added strength and durability
  • Two-speed gear box with automatic chain tensioner lets you adjust the feed rate to meet your needs
  • Large, cast-iron, precision-ground table for precise work piece support
  • Powerful 5 HP TEFC induction motor with three V-belt transmission for smooth and consistent power
  • Positive gear drive moves table quickly and accurately
  • Work table is precision-ground and polished for consistently smooth operation
  • Large hand wheel with positive gear drive allows for quick and accurate table adjustments
  • 1/16 in. increment height scale lets you make the most precise adjustments for fine cuts
  • 5 in. dust port provides efficient chip and dust collection
  • One-piece welded steel base offers solid support and stability
  • Magnetic controls provide long life and reliability
Includes:
  • 20 in. 5 HP 1-Phase Helical Head Planer - 708544

    Comments about JWP-208HH-1, 20 in. 5 HP 1-Phase Helical Head Planer:

    I have the non-helical cutterhead (straight knives) and would pay the extra for the helical head if I could do it over. Smoother cut on crazy grain and less noise with the helical cutterhead. It does a great job on wider stock and glue-ups. It is heavy - but I see that as a benefit rather than a detrement since my planer is in a permanent position in the shop. The 3hp is plenty powerful enough for the 20" width and the top rollers are handy for stacking planed wood in process. Retractable side bar handles assist moving it but it will require two people. A high volume chip collection system is a must with this planer.

    It is a horse... "big and powerful"
