    Manufactured 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 30 inserts on the cutterhead, plus 5 extras. The end insert seat is purposely machined at an angle to allow for rabbeting. Although it looks different than the others, it does NOT interfere with normal cutting or leave any adverse cutting results.

    Fits 'older' Jet CSDX jointer 1/6/2016

    Byrd makes two heads for the Jet 6" CSDX jointer. This 6" cutter is for the older model - if the circumference of your cutter is ~ 7 7/8" this cutter will fit. Grizzly support wasn't aware of the difference...

    I bought this for my Ridgid JP06101 jointer. There is a little confusion as the cross reference shows this cutterhead fits a Ridgid JP0601 (there is a one digit difference in the model number) but it works fine as an upgrade on my Ridgid. The shaft length where the drive pulley is installed is slightly shorter in length than the original head that came with my Ridgid jointer, but that wasn't an issue. Shaft diameters where the bearings mount are correct and match the original cutter head. You need a gear puller to remove the bearings from the old cutter head and some way of pressing the bearings on the new Shelix cutterhead. I had a gear puller but had to modify the arms to fit under the bearings so it would work. I just used a deadblow hammer and a deep socket to reinstall the bearings on the new cutterhead. I also wore very heavy leather cloves when handling the cutterheads as the knives/blades are very sharp. I sanded the original drive key so it would fit in the new cutterhead's keyway easier, but still a snug fit. Removal and installation is a little tricky in getting the mounting bolts to line up, but patience is the key. Total time for removal and reinstallation including bearing swapping, probably about two hours. maybe a little longer. Runs quieter, cuts smoothly. I like it. Prior to this I had replaced the cutterhead in my Dewalt 735 planer with a 13" Shelix cutterhead. It too runs quieter and cuts smoothly.
