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.

great priduct 12/29/2017

wish i would have purchased this years ago. going to order one for my 15 inch grizzly planer next.

New cutterhead 8/17/2017

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

Good product and good price! 6/2/2017

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.

Prefect 6/1/2017

Bought this because I was so impressed with the head I put on my planer..I figured the jointer needed one too.

This is a great addition to the jointer! 5/31/2017

I should have bought one of these before now. This cutter head cuts much quieter with an extremely smooth finish.

Game changer! 1/20/2017

I build high quality furniture and cabinetry (see , 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.

Better than expected 8/26/2016

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.
