12" Z Series Jointer w/ Spiral Cutterhead
For the ultimate in extreme-duty machines, the G9860ZX features a 6 spiral, indexable insert cutterhead. By using a "spiral" cutterhead, the knife never leaves the wood like a conventional jointer. This provides the finest finish available & a much quieter machine that's unlike any other. The carbide "inserts" are not only replaceable, but each one has four cutting edges & can be turned 90° to expose a new cutting edge. It's like getting four blade changes for the price of one!
