Our new 8" Bench top Planer with Helical Style Cutterhead features a powerful 1HP motor and a 4 row helical cutterhead with 16 indexable cutters giving you power and superior finish you would expect from a stationary machine.
Designed to manage larger, deeper cuts in wood, this parallelogram style jointer with helical style cutterhead is quieter and delivers a smoother finish compared to straight knife jointers which will reduce your sanding time. You can say goodbye to cumbersome and time consuming blade changes like straight knife jointers. 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.
Teflon coated tables allow for better movement of your work even when dealing with the toughest of hardwoods. The table also features extendable handles, extending the surface for longer pieces of wood and double as strong carry handles for ease of portability. The depth of cut gauge helps you accurately set the cut depth to remove the desired amount of material.
The strong aluminum fence is lightweight keeping the overall weight of the machine down and has positive stops at the most common fence positions; 90° & 135° outwards. This unit also features a dual dust collection port at 2-1/2" & 4" for easy hook up to a shop vac or dust collector.
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.

impressed with this tool. Still getting it permently set up. So far very impressed.
I love this jointer and am so happy I bought it. This is a good entry-level jointer for beginning woodworkers and hobbyists. I mostly use it to joint wood for making small projects like cutting boards. It was easy to set up and came out of the box nearly perfect with minimal adjustments needed. The blades are easy to remove for cleaning, the fence is sturdy, and the jointer is small, but packs a punch.
All in all excellent performance to cost ratios. The best bench top model that I've seen so far. Leaves a smooth, clean surface cut. Steel top is a bonus over other models, and the dust extraction works very well. As with all bench models, the fence could be sturdier. Otherwise, it's a great unit that gives professional results for anyone that doesnt have space for a larger unit
Great jointer. Perfect size for my workshop. Easy set up. Does a good clean job.
Easy set-up, perfectly adjusted cutters, low noise, great dust collection,very satisfying for the price, and fast delivery.
took me a while to set up vertical guide plate to exactly 90 deg. Adjusting screws were awkward to set while maintaining plate at 90 deg. to table surface. Once set cuts were nice and clean.
Love the 8 inch flat bed and helical head on the tool. The only down side to it, is the fence. It's a bit flimsy and hard to keep it at 90 degrees when passing pieces through.
Great little jointer. I'm impressed with the cutter head. It makes smooth cuts without any chip out with figured hard maple. I only wish the same jointer was offered with carbide cutters pre-installed. I would pay extra for the option. The cost to buy two sets of carbide cutters for a jointer that already have HSS cutters installed is excessive. Busy Bee's customer service is fantastic. The jointer they first sent me had a problem. I got the needed replacement part delivered less than 72 hours after my initial email signaling the problem. That is great!
This has been a really great addition to my workshop (well, my garage). I don't have a lot of room so this is perfect. Planes nicely, small footprint. Love the helical cutter. Couldn't ask for anything better
