I was told this would make a big difference to my jointer. Got this one and with a little help from the support help line I installed it onto my jointer in a very short time. Had a little problem with chip extraction, it keep clogging up. After playing around I soon found out that I needed to make shallower passes, 3/16" seems to be my manic number for depth of cut. Quiet to run.too. Love it, will never go back to the straight blades.
Thank you Grizzly
I installed the Byrd Shelix cutterhead on my Delta DJ 20 jointer. I am very happy with the performance. The installation was straightforward, Grizzly has a nice video on YouTube on the install. I took some time to level the tables on my jointer-a fairly tedious job but worth the effort. The cutterhead really reduces tearout, even on changing grain directions. Noise levels are moderately reduced. I am very pleased.
Bought this because I was so impressed with the head I put on my planer..I figured the jointer needed one too.
I should have bought one of these before now. This cutter head cuts much quieter with an extremely smooth finish.
I build high quality furniture and cabinetry (see seancarlindesigns.com) , having straight lumber is a must. While my jointer worked great before, it is a whole different beast with this cutterhead installed. It is much quieter and cuts soo much better it is hard to describe. It only took about 15 min to install.
I just bought a used DJ 20. I never even tried the original blades, I immediately ordered and installed the Shelix head.
- Grizzly delivered promptly.
- The head was easy to install.
- The results are better than anticipated. I made several test passes with walnut, curly maple, and hard maple - in each case it cut cleanly with zero tear out.
