12" Jointer with Helical Cutterhead - Craftex CX-Series
The CX12HC is equipped with a Helical Cutterhead which means it operates more like a sheer or skew cut taken with a hand plane, as the cutters are positioned at an angle to the feed rate and this shearing action provides a quieter, smoother and superior finish compared to the standard knives and the spiral cutterheads.
This machine is built in the same factory as our other Spiral Cutterhead Jointers and after testing both units side by side, the Helical Cutterhead provided a smoother and superior finish compared to the Spiral Version.
This 12" jointer with helical cutter-head has all the features woodworkers want for precision jointing and ease of use. With the parallelogram table adjustment you will never have to worry about your tables not being parallel. The 12" wide and 76-3/8" long table provides a perfect work surface for jointing and the fence stops allow to set the fence at 45, 90 and 135 degrees. The 3HP powerful motor gets work done quickly and the 5" dust port is for optimum dust removal.
Like all CX-Series machines, this unit features powder coated paint and a full 3 year warranty.
