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 40 inserts on the cutterhead, plus 5 extras.

my order arrived in perfect condition as it was packed very well. the cutterhead was a perfect fit and went together easily. I opted to keep the original bearings as my jointer did not have a lot of hours on it but if you go this route I recommend that you use a proper bearing separator/puller as most wheel/gear pullers do not work due to the bearings being so close to the cutter head main body. I did note that the original bearings on the jointer came from Japan and the replacement bearings offered by Grizzly are of Chinese origin. The install went very smoothly and after a bit of set up the first trial run on a piece of rock maple produced almost a mirror finish. I would definitely recommend this product, it is well worth the cost.


Outstanding performance! This cutterhead is worth the money. Should have purchased it sooner.

Increase in surface quality, reduction in noise. 7/12/2017

This is my third Shelix cutter head. The noise reduction is immediately noticeable. Surface quality is directly related to feed rate, from very good to excellent.

Great product very happy 6/27/2017


Installed very easily. I bought new bearings, as this model doesn't come with them. Jointer is much quieter, and cuts like a dream, even on figured woods.

I purchased this in January for my 8" planar to upgrade from my HSS cutter. This runs quite and yields a good surface. However, I really need to slow the feed rate to get a decent surface relative to the HSS.

Better than expected 1/29/2017

This cuts Iike a hot knife through butter. Get the new bearings it is worth the cost. Installation was easy and only took about 40 minutes. You can hardly tell it's cutting it's so smooth. Wish I had done it a long time ago.
