Made in the USA by Byrd®, these indexable carbide insert cutterheads are very well made and leave a great finish. The inserts are positioned along a spiral pattern, and rotate at a slight angle for a shearing action that leaves a glassy smooth cut on the toughest of woods. Comes with all 75 inserts on the cutterhead, plus 10 extras. Fits the 15" Planer.

Finally received the Shelix cutterhead for my G0815 last week. Although the installation wasn't without problems (the pulley shaft on the gearbox end was slightly oversized and had to be lapped down), I got the planer up and running with minimal adjustment and straightaway planed several test pieces of poplar, walnut and oak. What a finish--the wood looks like it was sanded with 320 grit sandpaper! Don't believe any of the negative reports about helical cutterheads on the Internet--in my experience there are no grooves, ridges or other artifacts that need to be hand-sanded out. (Maybe Bird has gotten all the bugs in the intervening years since the initial bad press). The Shelix cutterhead is the way to go--it will turn this machine and others like it into true production planers. I'm looking forward to never having to change out dull knives. I'll bet it will be many hundreds--maybe thousands--of board feet down the road before I even have to rotate any of the inserts.
