Description

CX125HC

Our new 12 ½" Bench top Planer with Helical Style Cutterhead features a powerful 2HP and a 6 row helical cutterhead with 24 indexable cutters giving you power and superior finish you would expect from a stationary machine. Designed to manage larger, deeper cuts in wood, the helical style cutterhead is quieter and delivers a smoother finish compared to straight knife planers which will reduce your sanding time. This unit comes equipped with a cut depth indicator that automatically measures the depth of cut for each pass you take up to 1/8" and features built in dust collection with dual ports at 2-1/2" & 4" for easy hook up to a shop vac or dust collector.

The cutterhead raises and lowers on a 4 column precision ground carriage system which drastically reduces snipe. The convenient side carry handles allow for ease of portability and blade changes on this machine are simple and super fast. Chip an insert cutter? Simply unscrew the indexable cutter and rotate to get a fresh new cutting edge. Say goodbye to cumbersome and time consuming blade changes with traditional straight knife planers.

We tested this planer directly against the popular selling DeWalt DW735 13" Planer and found this machine to superior in noise level, smoothness of cut and overall performance. This machine is designed to tackle any type wood and is a welcome addition to any size shop or worksite. This machine is backed by a full 3 year warranty and available exclusively at Busy Bee Tools.

    CRAFTEX CX SERIES 12.5IN. PLANER WITH HELICAL CUTTERHEAD CSA CX125HC

    Quite good surfaces smooth & even

    Excellent

    Posted by Alex on 10th Apr 2022

    Where do I start? Maybe 28 hardwood boards fed in three times each. No snipe, no tearout. Boards come out like they're sanded to 300. This thing is smooth and efficient. I like that it's four post. I like that it uses a helical cutterhead. I enjoy the built-in infeed & outfeed panels there. Every full turn of the handle is 1/16th of an inch, which is helpful. I love this thing. Pretty quiet, very even cuts. Mine came missing the 'L' on the word 'HELICAL' printed down it, just says 'HELICA' but man, whatever. This thing puts the work in. I couldn't be happier with it. Honestly the best planer I have used. Really good stuff.

    Planer purchase

    Posted by Dale on 30th Jan 2022

    I am very impressed with this planer, especially with the helical cutter head. The planer worked great right out of the box and result is great thickness control and a super smooth finish. A lot of machine for the price!

    12.5 planer

    Posted by marc on 6th Dec 2021

    Very easy to set up & use. This planer is quieter than my old planer that had knives instead of carbide inserts. the raise & lower mechanism moves very smoothly. Excellent finish. only needs a light sanding.

    Craftex CX125HC

    Posted by Gary on 26th Oct 2021

    I have lots of experience with planers, and this is the first portable planer I have owned. Pleasantly surprised, with cut quality and overall performance. Will bog down on wider boards (>7”) so lighter cuts are necessary. Also, depends on what type of wood is being planed, with harder species requiring less aggressive cuts. Segmented cutters results in small chips and easy extraction, even with a regular shop vac. Some snipe was evident, but minimal concern since it is easily cleaned up with light sanding. Overall a big thumbs up.

    Craftex 12.5" Thickness Planer

    Posted by Ed McGugan on 18th Oct 2021

    Very nice planer. Works very well with quite good chip and dust collection. Has made very fine, smooth cuts on a range of domestic hardwoods. Leaves no tracks at all from nicked blades even though it has seen quite a bit of use already. Really like the individual cutter bit style cutterhead. Really don't care that it is not a "true helical" cutterhead. It works great and very, very happy I bought it! Now I need one of these cutterheads for my jointer......
